Go camping under an outback sky and immerse yourself in a landscape of rolling hills, escarpments, and tree-lined rivers and water pools at Millstream Chichester National Park.
Located near the town of Roebourne in the north west of Western Australia, the national park is a tropical oasis in the outback.
The Chichester Range rises sharply from the plain and includes rocky peaks, tranquil gorges, and hidden rock pools such as Python pool.
The Fortesque River flows through the park and supports huge ferns, lilies, a big variety of water birds and flying foxes.
At Millstream, fresh water springs create tropical Chinderwarriner Pool which is surrounded by paperbark and palm trees.
There are several bushwalking tracks that pass by cooling swimming holes.
Climb to the peak of Mount Herbert for amazing views of the plain and visit the Historic Millstream Homestead.
There are shady camping areas at Crossing Pool and Deep Reach.
The best time to visit is between May and August, when there is little rain, wildflowers are in bloom and the day time temperature is comfortable.
Millstream Chichester National Park is an hour and a half drive from Roebourne, or three hours from Karratha.
