Yindilli Camping Ground is owned and operated by Colin ‘CJ’ and Helen Fischer. Together we have created a serene and beautiful camping area beside the crystal clear waters of Bairds Creek.
At Yindilli Camping Ground guests can lay back and enjoy the quiet serenity in natural bush surrounds with beautifully maintained areas of gardens, walkways and amenities. The choice is yours; to take advantage of the many guided walks we have available with CJ as your host for the duration. You will be delighted with his narrative of traditional stories which have a cultural and spiritual significance with Buru and its people. CJ will also point out and explain the uses of the local bush tucker as both a food source and for medicinal purposes.
We offer an experience to remember where, as our guest, your wellbeing is our number one priority. All our bush walks are at a leisurely pace with picnic lunches provided beside the crystal clear waters of Bairds Creek, at the Roaring Meg picnic area or at an exclusive destination to experience the breathtaking natural beauty of the environment where traditional and ancient stories of creation originated; you can take part in the collecting, preparation and tasting of bush tucker; and listen to the master storyteller, share his traditional and historical stories, close to the sites of their origin, where the spiritual and cultural significance can be felt…..by just being there.
BURU / CHINACAMP
Buru (Chinacamp) has been inhabited by Kuku Yalanji for thousands of years. In Yalanji language Buru means ‘bowl’ because the country is shaped like a bowl with the mountains surrounding like a rim and the creeks flowing through the middle.
Buru is owned under Native Title and covers a vast area of rainforest and open woodlands with crystal clear, freshwater streams and creeks, including the popular Roaring Meg Falls. Buru is abundant in primitive plant species such as the zamia palm, grass tree and rose silky oak to name a few, and the wildlife includes the rare and endangered tree kangaroo, southern cassowary and the northern quoll.
Chinacamp is the name given to Buru by the early miners who lived and worked in the area, from the late 1800’s to the 1980’s, when the price of tin dropped and caused a dramatic decline in population. Buru is accessible only by 4WD vehicles and the one hour drive from Wujal Wujal is a pleasant experience in the dry season from April/May to November/December, with creek crossings, panoramic views from up high on the ridges and through cool, dark and mysterious pockets of rainforest.
