Mays Bend turn is @

Mays Bend is @
30 02 23.9S 146 01 26.9E

This is on black soil country and if there has been rain or is going to rain is not a great spot to get in & out OF.

I have been there several times and love the spot and at times the fishing great.
But would vacate if in the liklehood of rain as there are some very soft patches to negotiate to get in or out.

I suggest that you have a look at these co-ordinates on Google Earth and see for your self.

I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

Cheers Dodg.

There is a lot of space out there which is crown land, not just at that specific bend in the river. That particular spot is the closest when you come in off the highway in saying that, its still maybe 4 or 5kms off the road.
There are 2 or 3 tracks to get to the bend, one of thise in particular can get bad with a little bit of rain but the others are pretty good.
It is somethimes sign posted however the signs on the highway don't usually last very long.

To get there, head out of Bourke on the Cunnamulla Road, go past Kidmans camp and continue on for about 5kms. Turn right onto an unnamed dirt road which runs perpendicular to the highway. If you get to the Collerina Road, you have missed the turn.
Once on the dirt, just keep foloowing that road. You will go around a sweeping left hand bend as you enter a citrus farm. Just keep following the road through and past the old caravan park on your right. As you get to a fork in the road, keep right and follow the fence on your right which will take you all the way to the river.

There is heaps of room out there so feel free to explore.

Thank you to all those who replied. Found the spot quite easily and it is a very lovely place indeed. A few people were camped , however there was plenty of room for everyone. I could see how you could come to grief if it happened to rain, a great dry site a great stretch of river. Once again thanks.
