Hey there all,
In April we are off on our maiden family trip. This will be the start of many to come. The first leg will be from home, Rosebud Vic, to the central coast of NSW. I wanted to break it up with a quick overnight stay in a free camp. I have just bought Camps 7, and a rest stop called Tumblong on the Hume HWY looks about where we need to be for the night. Camps 7 says a caravan would be suitable here, but not a camper trailer.....would anybody offer some advice about us putting up our soft floor camper in a rest area like this?
Thanks
Chriso.

Hi Chriso
Tumblong is just a rest stop on the highway, I'm pretty sure it would be suitable for your camper. If you are happy to drive another 30-40 minutes there is a great spot at Jugiong, easy access off the highway about a km. Jugiong site should also be in Camps 7.

Enjoy your trip

X2 for Jugiong. It's a very good free camp although a donation is very welcome to help with the upkeep.

Chriso,
Jugiong is far better option. Camp beside the Murumbidgee River. Quiet and then there is Long Track Pantry cafe nearby which serves excellent food and coffee
Camps 6 is number 565.
Cheers
Ian

Bring your earplugs if camped at a Hume Highway rest stop...or as advised above..get off the highway a bit. Camps book has some good places.

Look at this map first. You will note there is two areas. As well as the truck area there is the car area (where the dunny is.) Both areas are bitumen paved, If you need to peg down your camper you will have problems

Map of Jugiong. You will not the day area where the green arrow is. There is a gate on the southern end where you can go into the showground. You can turn hard left after the gate and be fairly close to the dunny or drive down to the riverside. It's close enough to the highway to hear the traffic buzz but it is fairly muted. It's a favoured stopping place for me.

If you don't mind a short(ish) detour you could try Sandy Beach Reserve on the Murrumbidgee at Wantabadgery - about 30km west-nor-west of Tumblong
