The Thompson River is located approximately four and a half kilometres north west of Longreach along the Landsborough Highway heading to Winton. While offering perfect camping spots along its banks, walking tracks and a ‘beach’, the river is also home to a number of species of fish, turtles and yabbies.
For those with boats, an easy-to-access boat ramp is available next to the designated caravan grounds for a perfect day of water-skiing, swimming and fishing. Ensure to call into the Visitor Information to enquire about the Thomson River Cruises that include nibbles, drinks, dinners and entertainment.
