Rain for Kilcowera Station @ SW QLD

Red Water Hole on Kilcowera Station

Our friends at Kilcowera have had about 138 mnls of rain over the festive season and are very happy after battling through 9 years of drought. They tell me all the swamps, waterholes and lagoons are full and grass and herbage growing well. Lake Wyara has a lot of water in it as well. The birdlife has flocked back and it should be a good breeding season. The station is open for visitors and has comfortable accommodation and great campgrounds. . . .
