Day 6: Windorah to Longreach (approx 315km / 3hr 28 mins)
Pass through ever-changing landscapes to Jundah heralded by their unique Welcome Signs which resemble old style shop fronts. Jundah is the closest town to the fascinating Welford National Park. This 124,000 hectare park is a blaze of colours; see green and gold spinifex, red sand hills and white ghost gums hugging serene waterholes. Camping is permitted but check with the Jundah Visitor Information team about permits and access conditions. Drive around 32km north east to visit the site of a Native Well. These wells supplied good, sweet water to the local Aboriginal people. Make a stop at Swanvale Lookout, about half way between Stonehenge and Jundah. This magnificent ‘Jump Up’ is also a free camp site and an ideal spot to watch sunrise or sunset. If you are looking for some refreshments, take the Stonehenge Turnoff. Enjoy free WiFi and freshly brewed coffee at the Visitor Information Centre or for something more substantial head to the Stonehenge Hotel. From Stonehenge, follow route 79 to Longreach. Late afternoon in Longreach, join the Drover’s Sunset Cruise on the the Thomson River.
