Collarenebri Free RV Camp, Collarenebri NSW

⛺️ Collarenebri FREE Camping Ground, Outback NSW

Share It!

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.

  1. Wow I can’t believe this is free. Hot showers and flushing toilets is all you need really, especially if you have your own van facilities. Looks like a nice spot next to the water to get back to nature.

    1. It’s always great to find towns that offer free services like this to travellers. It definitely works in their favour as most of us will stop, fill up with petrol, grab some food and maybe even go out for dinner.

  2. Free, free is good haha. It’s great they provide showers and such! And how nice that it’s right along a river. Certainly seems like a great place to park the RV for a bit!

  3. First of all, I would have to agree that the area right along the waterway looks amazing! I would want to definitely set up a campervan or tents by the water unless it was raining.
    I did kind of giggle a bit on the definition of Primitive camping in the town of Collarenebri! As an avid outdoorsman and backpacker, if I ever tell you we are going to a primitive campsite, please don’t ever expect free hot showers, flushing toilets, trash cans, or even level ground. Haha, to me that is a nice hotel stay!
    But seriously, this place sounds pretty amazing for a weekend or family adventure!

  4. This looks like a cute little place to spend a few nights. I would love the mentioned campsite on the river, it is always great to have (natural) water nearby as you fell so much closer to nature. If we once visit the area, we will definitely consider Collarenebri campground.

  5. Yes, I would definitely like to be by the water! I read your post with interest as I’m thinking about taking my first RV trip (as an adult…did some as a kid) this fall. I love your summary at the end with the icons. Lets me know exactly what’s there and I’m a visual person. Too bad I can’t get to Australia right now to try some of your itineraries!

    1. We can definitely recommend travelling around in an RV, it’s a great way to check out your own country. Especially since overseas travel is off the cards this year.
