The tiny Outback NSW town of Collarenebri offers a fantastic free camping ground for tourists to rest up. While there are 8 sectioned camp sites, there is plenty more room for the busy periods.
If you go for a walk down the driveway to the Barwon River, you might be as surprised as we were to find a fantastic open area right along the waterway. We trialled both camping areas and reckon the space by the river is the best! Kick back, relax around the camp fire and maybe even throw the fishing line in.
The main street of town is just a short walk over the Rocky Ford Bridge. There you’ll find a Post Office, Newsagent, Hotel, Cafe, Butcher and Tyre Repair Shop.

While online/ offline maps are fantastic, it’s wise to have a good old paper map on hand as well. You don’t want to find yourself stuck with a dead device and no idea on which direction to go. Hema have a great, detailed range.
