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. Later, relax beside the campfire under a blanket of stars and listen to the orchestra of the bush.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
