Ever changing, always amazing
The Bulloo Shire offers a variety of landscapes, lakes and river systems, rich history, freshwater fishing, bird watching and opal fossicking. It is the ideal touring route to or from South Australia, as this modern town provides a breadth of experiences you’ll never forget.
The main town, Thargomindah, is perfectly positioned as a base for day tripping to number of iconic attractions. For example, the Burke & Wills ‘Dig Tree’, the historic Noccundra Hotel and Lake Bindegolly. Not to mention Currawinya National Park and Cameron Corner, where the States of Queensland, South Australia and New South Wales meet.
While you’re in Thargomindah, don’t miss seeing the working hydro power plant. This power plant was built in 1898 to power Thargomindah’s street lights. The water turbine in the hydro power plant is driven by the natural water pressure of the Great Artesian Basin.
