Rest and refuel at Murchison Oasis Roadhouse as you drive in the tracks of the early pioneers on the Wool Wagon Pathway, through vast outback plains and spring wildflower country to Ningaloo Reef, the world’s largest fringing reef.
As you follow the trail’s interpretive sites along the Carnarvon-Mullewa Road, you’ll find this roadside oasis around 200 kilometres north of Mullewa on the unsealed four wheel drive track to Gascoyne Junction.
In addition to meals, groceries and fuel, the roadhouse offers motel and caravan accommodation (bookings essential). Stay for a couple of nights, soak up the settlement’s outback ambience. Explore nearby Errabiddy Bluff’s striking rock formations – a great picnic spot – or the oases of Bilung Pool, Wooramel River Gorge or Ballinyoo Bridge, a wildlife watering hole.
Back on the Wool Wagon Pathway, your next stop is Gascoyne Junction, 300 kilometres to the north – gateway to the canyons and wildlife of Kennedy Range National Park. Alternatively, take an adventurous four wheel drive detour to Mount Augustus. At 860 metres high, with a 49-kilometre scenic base trail, it’s the world’s largest monolith – twice the size of Uluru.
