Mungo National Park

G'day
Next month, taking th enew troopy for a stretch heading to Lake Mungo camping for a couple of days then dropping South to follow Murray River back to Yarrawonga then North to Sydney.

Do we need to carry fire wood into Lake Mungo?

It's getting cold!!

A great place to camp is Turlee Station. Nathan & his wife are lovely people & supply firewood (mallee roots nice & hot) there are showers & toilets too. Have a look at their web site. Their local knowledge is very beneficial.

I'll second this - just got back from 3 days at Turlee station and it was a wonderful experience with a wonderful bunch of people. Only 35 km from the Mungo visitors centre too.

Play it safe and carry wood in - its in a National Park in any case.

Hi GT

If you use any of the NP camp grounds, you need to bring your own firewood. Enjoy a few days at Mungo - we did, and it was hot then!

Was just going to say...this time last year we were there and there's red gum at the main centre (can't remember what the 'centre' was called!).

And you can pack a metal basket and take it back to camp with you. Great hardwood as well, well worth the 5 bucks.

Hi guys! Sophie here from Turlee Station Stay, next door to Mungo National Park. We welcome campers down to our campground, no bookings required. We do not allocate any sites, just allow campers to set up wherever best suits them. We have two hot showers and two septic toilets located at the campground and also supply free wood to our guests. A nice (currently GREEN!) campground in a seccluded location just next door to Mungo! Would love to see you all out at Turlee soon!!! Sophie.

Hi Gaeme,

If you are travelling up via Balranald then you will go straight past our gate on the way up to Mungo so you are welcome to have a look through and make the call then if you like. Our average rainfall for the year is about 11 inches and since our baby was born in September (10 months ago) we have had nearly 18 inches! She must be our lucky charm.

The campground is on he edge of the ancient Chibnalwood Lake which is probably on your maps. Tee off from the bank of the lake would be most welcome!

Morning Sophie

We are probably passing through Ivanhoe - haven't checked the ole map yet, but we will most surely pop in - we are now looking for a golf caddy - but baby sounds a bit too young.

Cheers

No Chance Sophie!!

All us men are going outback / camping to get away from that... have all been there - done that.

Although three is a good age. Wait till she is 16 thinking she is really 21 years old??

You will probalaly smell our cooking from the camp fire as we are bringing our own Master Chef - Leo. He seriously is a Swiss Master Chef and is closing his famous restuarant in Sutherland for a week to camp and cook with us.

Cheers
Graeme

Don't be too alarmed if your campsite becomes flooded with shearer's following the smell of the campoven! We start shearing on July 26th for aout 2 weeks. Would love to get some tips off Leo and give him the grand tour of our outback catering trailer! He will get a bit of a kick out of it I think!

Of course your shearer's will be in our campsite - We'll be cooking Roast Lamb!!

They will be thinking its one of theirs.....

Ok Sophie you win! We'll stay at your place first.

Sunday night expect Ken and Miron from Melbourne at your place (2 cars) we arrive Monday afternoon from Sydney (3 cars).

Keep Ken as far away as poosible from our site..

Leo's looking forward to checking out the griddle cart.

Cheers
Graeme
