Comments on other sites say that Yornanning Lake is now day only.

Maybe a call to Cuballing Shire would clarify.

I'm glad I ain't too scared to be lazy

Signage at Yornaning Dam says that the site is not a designated camping area, and that full facilities for caravanners are available at Laze Away Farm Stay. It doesn't say No Camping.

YenYening Lake is full of water and there is plenty of bird life there at present. The only signage we saw refers to rules for skiing and boating. The road in is gravel and suitable for caravans

We were filming in both areas few weeks ago.

cheers
Laurie

Hi Brodie H3 might be an idea to check out Lake Yealering top spot small country town very friendly. Has a fantastic caravan park with all the modern facilities, pub about 300 meters with cold beer and great meals if required. General store , bowls etc all within walking distance. If you are into walking you can go around the lake,bird watch,swim or boating all good. Wildflowers just starting to come out , canola in full flower wheat ,barley and lupin crops to look at. But then again I may be biased l live here!

Well Lyncol,
It would appear as though you may get some visitors over the long week end, it sounds to us like the perfect spot to set up camp and do a bit of walking and photography at the same time. From what I have seen of the country side and the proximity of other towns we could even go exploring;
So If you see a ford ranger towing a twenty four foot Atlantic caravan, come and say Gooday, we like meeting new people. thank you for the heads up.

We don't live at Lake Yealering, were just visitors, but agree completely that it is a top spot to visit. It's all as Lyncol states.

It maybe an idea to ring the general store for bookings 98887106 have a feeling it will be pretty full, but please come and check it out. Photography of birds and flowers excellent and sunset across the lake. Paul I'll give you a ring sometime we did the Helena and aurora range trip and up to Leinster . When I get 5 I'll post some pics of the lake and town , have a great long weekend.

Hi LynCol,
thank you very much for the Photos, but it would seem our plans for the weekend have been changed some what, but we will be travelling your way in the near future.

Sounds like a great place. If you go there, it'd be great if you could add it as a place on Exploroz, with some photos and commentary.
