When you’re hankering to get away from it all, Yanda campground (10 sites) in Gundabooka National Park might just be the remote Outback adventure you’ve been dreaming of. Nestled on the banks of the Darling River, this remote campground is perfect for self-sufficient campers who yearn to explore the beauty of the Darling River in outback NSW, near Bourke.
Arriving at the riverside campground, choose your spot to pitch the tent or park the caravan. The majestic river red gums provide a shady spot to relax and let the world drift by. Throw in a fishing line or bring a boat for a relaxing paddle down the river.
As the sun sinks, barbecue your catch and be serenaded by the sounds of the bush. Grab a torch for the chance to glimpse the pied bats and yellow-bellied sheathtail bats. If you’re lucky, you might catch sight of the endangered Kultarr, a mouse-sized nocturnal hunter.
