Description

Combo Waterhole Trail is located in the Combo Waterhole Conservation Park. Combo Waterhole Conservation Park is part of the Diamantina catchment area. Combo's waterholes reputedly inspired Banjo Paterson to write Waltzing Matilda, Australia's most popular folk song. The waterholes are a refuge for wildlife during dry times, just as they provided shady picnic spots in 1895 for stagecoach passengers and residents of neighbouring stations.

Discover the history surrounding this park while you walk along the self-guided 2.6 kilometre walking track to Combo Waterhole. The track begins at the car park and takes you through Mitchell grass downs and across stone-pitched overshots and the Diamantina River's braided channels to this famous waterhole. Please be aware this track floods after rain. Do not attempt to cross the flooded creek. Allow 1.5 hours to complete this walk which is of an easy grade.
