Local Attractions

Whether interested in geology, astronomy, ornithology, bush walking or simply relaxing in the outback – Karalundi is the oasis to visit and explore. There are 100’s of acres to explore within the boundary fence of Karalundi with plenty of native birds and animals to observe and photograph. Karalundi is situated in the middle of an outback station so when exploring by vehicle, a 4×4 is recommended. When exploring on foot, make sure you let us know which direction you are taking and have plenty of water with you. Some of the attractions, like Mt Albert, are outside the boundary of Karalundi and common courtesy demands that gates be left as you found them (usually closed).

Wildlife

Being a real oasis has attracted a diverse range of wildlife, from kangaroos, emus and goannas to eagles, bower birds, parrots and insects. So get your binoculars out and go hunting but shoot only with your camera.

Bush Foods

As with any fruits and vegetables traditional bush foods are also seasonal. The ‘bush pear’ pictured is available from March to April. It grows on a vine and is sweet when young. The ‘bush potato’ is an underground tuber growing from a vine with large purple flowers.

Star Gazing

Being isolated from many ground lights is advantageous in watching the night sky. Ask about our area available to camp out under the stars.

Museum

Karalundi began as a ‘mission’ in 1954 until 1974, because of its rich history one of the original school buildings has been renovated to showcase this history. The museum is open during office hours.

Mt Albert

Situated just 2.5km South, while technically not a mountain was so named after the first student (Albert Curley) to climb it in 1954. At the base you may be lucky enough to find what the locals call ‘devil dice’ a small cubed black rock – see samples in the café. Round trip will take approximately 2hrs.

Tunnel Hill

Located in limestone ‘breakaway’ country 37km north east along a 4WD only track.

Bilyuin Pool

Part of the Murchison River, it is located 13km along the Peak Hill Rd.
