Cawndilla campground

Caravan, Camping and Holiday Parks

Birdwatchers will flock to this idyllic lakeside campground in Kinchega National Park in outback NSW. Cawndilla Lake is the gathering place for countless waterbirds and it’s birdwatcher’s paradise, no matter what time of year you arrive.

You’ll be mesmerised by the cycle of wet and dry that brings life to this unique wetland. After the rains, you might see rare waterbirds such as brolgas, freckled and blue-billed ducks. Be sure to watch for the cheeky antics of the water fowls. When the waters recede, the flood plains erupt in a carpet of dazzling colour with wildflowers such as daises, sagoweed and sunrays.

At sundown, get ready for the light show of a life time. The lake will glow with the reflected colours of sunset, and the sky will fill with the calls of water birds.
