Eringa Waterhole

Eringa Waterhole

The Eringa Waterhole is located near the ruined homestead of the same name 188km north of Oodnadatta on the road to Finke.

Although with no facilities it is a delightful bush camp. Lined with majestic white trunked gum trees and a supply of permanent water it is a special place especially in the light of the early morning. If you decide to camp here please don`t leave any rubbish behind.

Thanks Rita for your comment. When you get to take that journey you won`t regret camping the night at Eringa Waterhole. Don`t forget to look in on Chambers Pillar Historical Reserve. Another good camp spot.

The place to go

Hi Terry,

what a marvellous photo! Thank you for sharing it with us.

In my opinion nothing can beat a lovely campsite surrounded by the beauty of the Australian Outback.

Unfortunately, I followed the Oodnadatta Track to Marla, and the Stuart Highway, so I missed Eringa waterhole.

One day I am doing the tour from Oodnadatta via Finke and Maryvale to Alice Springs. Then my journey along the old Ghan railway route would be complete.

Thank you for this tip.


Btw folks, check out Terry's page on the Outback Guide :)
