Camel Soak is located about 47 kilometres north east of the small town of Perenjori and can be
accessed via the Perenjor-Rothsay and Rabbit Proof Fence Roads.
A large granite outcrop dominates the area and at one time it was an important source of water for Aborigines and European travellers
in the area.
Today there is a campsite next to the rock with toilets, bins, seats, tables and fire rings provided.
At one end of the rock is a man-made waterhole where a large oblong section has been cut out of the rock.
The waterhole was created for workers constructing the No 2 Rabbit Proof Fence between 1903 and 1905.
The area is popular during wildflower season (August-September) and the presence of a reliable source of water attracts
birds and animals to the rock.
