Things to know
The camping area does not have designated or numbered sites, but it can accommodate a maximum of 10 people. Campers are advised not to set up camp within 20 meters of the water collection point, as there are underground tanks that need protection from damage. The campsite is suitable for walk-in camping only, catering to hikers exploring the Great Walk. Water is available at the camping zone, but it must be treated before drinking. A nearby water collection point with a hand pump is provided.
Consuelo Camping Zone is home to a diverse range of wildlife, with over 170 bird species inhabiting the area. Lucky campers may spot eastern grey kangaroos roaming near the campsite, and at night, they can listen to the sounds of koalas grunting and the unique calls of yellow-bellied gliders. The Carnarvon Great Walk, including the Consuelo camping zone, operates within certain seasonal restrictions. It is closed from the start of November to the end of February, which coincides with the hottest time of the year. Additionally, the track may be closed at other times due to wildfires, adverse weather conditions, essential track maintenance, or safety concerns.
