Mendooran Rest Area

Rest Area Overnight - New South Wales


This free 48 hour rest area is really scenic.  It is located on the banks of the Castlereagh River so fishing is a plus here as well as fossicking.  It is large, open, level, grassy with plenty of shade on offer if desired.  There is plenty of birdlife here to look at as well.

Here you will find toilets, cold showers, water, picnic tables, wood BBQ's/fireplaces and dogs are allowed.

Very large camp. Dry winter so the grass was short. Very little road noise to speak of and with around 15 vans there on the night we stayed there was more than enough room. Check out the notice board next to the facilities for local info - including firewood delivered to your camp.

Open again in June 2020, we stayed one night only with about 10 others on the site all well spaced out. Very quiet and grass recently slashed. Good to see the river flowing again. Self contained so did not inspect the amenities.

Beautiful and peaceful free campsite with toilet and shower near the river. Will visit again.

Very nice site. Large, grassy areas to park. Fairly level. Clean toilets and cold shower. Bins. Dogs allowed and off lead area provided along side. Walk to the hotel for meals (not dog friendly).

Good camp site. Very good meals and cold beer at the Pub, which is just a short walk from the camp.

This site still remains one of the better ones for an overnighter.

Previous description is accurate. Great site. Grass mown and clean facilities.

Huge grassy area - obviously cant be trimmed each week but is far bigger and better maintained than some in larger towns. Toilet are lit at night too. Mendooran is a tiny town located at the half way mark between Dubbo and Coonabarabran - Better road for a quieter and shorter trip between these two towns. -Since discovering this shortcut years ago have not travelled the Newell between these two towns since. Didnt check every facility but would be surprised if all listed were not there. You can also go direct to Duneedo or Gilgandra from here. General store has basic supplies petrol and diesel - appears to open business hrs - not 24 hrs. Garage has diesel (didnt see petrol pump) but not open weekends ??.

A very pleasant and peaceful camp site. The town is in a great location and pub is within walking distance. Dump point is in the camping area, plus picnic area and toilets. Glad we stopped overnight.

Excellent spot, but toilets and shower could do with a good clean up. Also watch out for ants nests when parking.

Have visited here before and was fairly impressed, but this time the site was badly overgrown, probably due to council having other priorities due the recent wet. Site in need of a good mowing.

As usual a great spot for an overnight stay, toilets were clean and area neat and tidy.

This is a great Rest Area, mostly flat parking and very large, quite a bit of shade, but also open areas, if wanting solar charging. Town is not large but has the basic facilities.
