Hi,
I'm looking for an overnight campsite between Hay and Balranald. Maude looks possible - has anyone used the caravan park there? Are there any bush camps in that area?

Cheers,

Val

Hi John and Val, There is a nice camp virtually in Hay, if coming from the North turn right before the bridge, follow road around past water tank and take the first to the left, go to the corner and turn left and go 200 metres to the river. Toilets and Water available and short walk to the shops. A authorised overnight stop.

Hi The camp site shows up on Google Maps - looks good! Thanks. Just as note: we've enjoyed good hospitality at the caravan park under the bridge at Balranald. Getting to Balranald, or at least past Hay gives Canberra people a good "first day" run. Megan

Oooh... but that brdige van park is a noisy place with the trucks gearing up or down over it. Nice spot but a sleepless night. Maybe I should have used earplugs :-)

Do they still make you pay cash at Balranald though?

We stopped going there because of the noise and the inability to pay by card.

We don't like carrying too much cash and tend to boycott any place that does not offer the option of using your card - but we will make an exception for a $5 discount for cash like Cobar does. Beats me why they want to have a great drawer full of cash for some nasty to knock off when they can have card money in the bank that night.

Hi Val, we plan to camp at the weir at Maude later this year as
first camp from home (Yass area), on way to WA. My info says toilets & tables
& chairs at Yang Yang Reserve, about 1k from Maude Pub.
Its free too, like our 2nd night at Heron Bend..Overland Corner.
Pub there too, sigh, & guess who is off the grog...:)))...oldbaz.

Hi Val, Sept. 09 we free camped in our caravan on the banks of the river about 300m down the Nap Nap Rd from the Maud bridge- from memory there were no facilities but it was quiet and only a short stroll up to the bridge/weir and friendly local store.
Regards
Alanc
