Its now less than four weeks till we leave on our trip to Wa from Canberra. Looking at the maps today our first night will be somewhere near to Hay on the Sturt Hwy. We would like to find a free camp site for our stay and wondering if anyone has any ideas.

Thats excellent thanks. The book obviously has a heep more information than any of the books I've been looking at today. We are going on a long trip so i will try and buy it before we go. You often hear of books that you MUST HAVE but you also need to draw a line some where. This one sounds like one we can't go past.

Yes just had a quick look. I have seen the book before in the shops. I will look again, it sounds really good. With the price of fuel the way it is we will need to save money on camp sites as much as possible.

G'day mate,

We've just done a 2 week trip to NSW to visit relos at Ulladulla and Narrandera. On the way over, we camped at one of the several spots on the river (Murrumbidgee), just east of Hay. There are small signs at several spots which just say "RIVER". Some of them (like the one we chose) require you to go through a closed gate, but this is not a problem; the gate was not locked. You can camp where ever you like, right on the banks of the river.......don't forget NOT to camp under a widow-maker (River Red Gum tree)!!!!!

To the best of my knowledge, there are no restrictions on how long you can camp at these sites; at least I did not see any signs etc.

Have a great trip.

Roachie
