Private Campground - New South Wales


Turn off lower darling road at GPS -33.924291, 141.955778 and follow road for approx 1km

Heritage Homestead destination or stop-over offering Australian outback experiences including accommodation on historic Darling River. Built in 1870's of stone & pine logs, the large rooms and high ceilings are characteristic of the period. Wood fires burn brightly during winter & in summer the wide verandas provide shade & views across the lawns sloping down to the river.

Extensive gardens of jacaranda and peppercorn trees surround the homestead beyond which stand original out-buildings, fruit and vegetable garden & modern mod-grass tennis court. Our position on the irrigation weir -  created by the lock on the Murray immediately below Wentworth and the Murray-Darling River Junction - ensures a constant water supply for 'Avoca' residents and gardens, even during periods of drought. Combine this with over 1 km of of river frontage, healthy old red gums, young saplings, saltbush and the natural serenity is here for your enjoyment.

You are invited to stay, relax and share the remarkable ambience with us and have some fun too!

The homestead complex was headquarters for the sheep station which  for a period covered 1,100 square miles and is a landmark in the area. It has now 'lived' in three centuries, having been built in the 1870's, moved through the 20th century and now welcomes guests in the 21st century.

'Avoca-on-Darling Hospitality' was featured on Channel 9's 'GETAWAY' programme and is the ideal place at which to spend some quality time along the river, in peace and quiet, with nature’s flora and fauna. Have a break from the rat race and recharge the batteries!

Experienced hosts Ian and Barbara Law will welcome you to historic 'Avoca' Homestead and its various levels of accommodation.


Day visitors are also welcome. Morning or afternoon tea or light lunch is available, together with a conducted tour. Spend some time enjoying the gardens, flora and fauna, and looking at some Outback History while it lasts.
