Witji­ra Nation­al Park fea­tures more than 120 mound springs. The park includes the Nation­al Her­itage-list­ed Dal­housie Springs, used by Abo­rig­i­nal peo­ple for thou­sands of years as a source of food, shel­ter and med­i­cine. You can swim in the main spring’s warm waters. The area is home to unique species of fish such as the Dal­housie hardy­head and oth­er rare aquat­ic life found nowhere else in the world.

The attrac­tion of the springs, com­bined with some delight­ful camp­ing spots and qual­i­ty vis­i­tor facil­i­ties, make Witji­ra one of the most pop­u­lar parks in the outback.

If you’re lucky enough to be vis­it­ing the park a few weeks after a soak­ing rain, you’ll be reward­ed with the ephemer­al wild­flow­ers burst­ing into bloom.
