Mays Bend

Free Camping - New South Wales


This free bush camping area is located beside the Darling River.  You will need to be fully self contained as there are no facilities here at all.  It is a great place to do a spot of fishing, go swimming or kayaking.  It has plenty of grassy areas with plenty of shade if desired.

To get here:  Drive along Cunnamulla Road approx. 8kms from Bourke.  You will then see a signpost for Mays Bend.  Turn south-east and follow the dry weather track to your river campsite.  You can set up camp anywhere along here.

Lovely peaceful spot, plenty of room for everyone, not hard to find a flat spot. Nothing there so must be self contained. Can have fires and dogs allowed. Approximately 15kms from Bourke, 6kms of which are dirt road, half of that badly corrugated

Free camp beside Darling river, peaceful, do not go there if rain is around or coming.

CMCA needs to say the distance from the Hwy to this free camp ground. It is a very corrugated road and I think the drive in is about 15kms. We gave up and turned back.

Beautiful spot beside the river. No facilities. Plenty of room for big rigs. Previous review was very misleading , it is exactly 5.2 kms of gravel road and the first 2.5kms were corrogated. Wouldn’t risk it after rain as would be very boggy.

Great overnighter or 2. We clocked only 4 km from the highway. Heaps of coping stops right on the river.
