Continuing on, you will reach the old Jowalbinna Station where you can see Red Bluff in the distance, aka Jowalbinna, which is a mountain of cultural significance to the local Indigenous people. Nearby is the historic Cobb and Co staging post and the Patrick Mail Hotel site with the remains of the sandstone floor and kitchen. Cobb and Co were a true pioneer for Australian travel in the gold rush years taking travellers between colonies and mining towns as well as further into the outback. Cobb & Co were also instrumental in setting up the mail delivery system in Australia.
Along the way, following the 4WD only Laura – Maytown Coach road adventure track, you will see the pickaxe marks in the sandstone from the ‘old timers’ who forged the road.

Day 5 – Stockcamp
This morning at 9.30am, you will be picked up from your hotel and drive 190km to Camooweal where you will pause for a short break. Camooweal proudly declares itself as the ‘Gateway to the Northern Territory/Queensland’. The road from Mount Isa to the town, known to locals as ‘Tojo’s Highway’, was built during World War Two with American funds and was originally designed as a link between the southern states and the theoretical ‘front line’ in the Northern Territory.
The explorer William Landsborough, was the first European to pass through the Camooweal area. At the time (1862), he was looking for Burke and Wills. His reports led to the area being settled by pastoralists, but it was not until 1884 that the town of Camooweal was gazetted. It grew as a service centre for the surrounding properties, but the growth of Mount Isa meant sustained growth was not possible. The Barkly Highway between Mount Isa and Camooweal is considered the longest main street in the world at 188 kilometres long! Continue northward towards the Stockcamp, stopping for some sightseeing and a picnic lunch along the way. The scenery is golden and sparse. This is the true Aussie outback.
On arrival, settle into your luxurious eco tents which are set up in a spectacular location, designed to expose you to the surrounding country. Enjoy some free time for a relaxing dip in the nearby waterhole, a lush and welcoming paradise amongst the harshness of the land, or simply relax around your camp site. As the sky starts to change colours, head to the Old Station for sundowner drinks as the sun continues to dip. Each evening for the next 4 nights, you will be wined and dined with a meal carefully prepared using only the finest local produce under the canopy of the night sky – another truly Australian luxurious experience.

This afternoon, you have free time to swim in the waterhole or relax on the rocks with a cold drink and enjoy the birdlife and peacefulness. This region is well known for vibrant green and gold wild budgerigars which quite often flock to the waterholes for a drink. Enjoy wine and cheese as the sun starts to dip. Tonight, we are doing things a little differently. You will overnight at the gorge, on a remote escarpment where you will enjoy a traditional Australian stockcamp dinner – think camp oven, billy tea and damper.
