Going up to the corner country this winter, are there any free camps spots to recommend. Bit hard up that way to be on a creek or the like but would be nice.

Hi wisky_mac,
We camped behind the old service station opposite the Pub in Ivanhoe in June last year on our way up to Lake Eyre. It used to be a caravan park and we were told it was ok to free camp there. There are no Toilet facilities there but good public toilets up th street.

Hi Jim. On our way up to the Silverton National Gathering last year we stopped overnight at Hay. We stayed at the showground and although not free, was only $15 for power and water with amenities. We were towing a 22ft van and stopped at Ivanhoe to get some tomatoes etc for lunch (had to give up fruit & veg at Narrandera) We found the lady at the Supermarket very friendly but the Servo guy (kid) could not have cared less. Apart from those two business' nothing else was open on a Sat lunchtime.
Hay on the otherhand looked like it had so much to see and do and we wished we had more time to look around. The Murrumbidgee is nearby as well. If you get the NRMA open road there is a good story in the current edition on the attractions there and on the way up to Ivanhoe. It's probably on line as well.
We got up to Willcania around 4pm with quite a few scenic stops on the way and a slight detour trying out the Menindee rd for about 10k (found it too rough for us with the van on)I think you could get to White Cliffs in a day if you are time poor. Have a great trip. The rain has made the country a pleasure to drive through at the moment. Cheers,Bob.

We stayed overnight at the C/p in 2010..quite adequate & cheap. I believe it has closed & reopened recently in lieu with the servo with improvements being added.
Maybe worth checking...on RHS coming fron Sth.....oldbaz.
