Hi all.

I was wandering through different camping spots & came accross "Wollondilly River Station" situated on the Wollondilly River in the southern highlands of NSW. It looks like a nice peaceful spot to camp.
Has anyone camped there before & what was it like?

Brian's Place

Postby Hissy » Sun Oct 07, 2007 8:07 pm

Hi Anthony,

I have stayed at Brian's property a number of times over the past 15 years.

One year we had a Buck's party and Brian set us up with a nice spot where we did not upset other campers.
There is an old rifle range up in one of the gullies if you are that way inclined.

Generally we have been in quiet times. We have see both snow and dry hot summers.

There is a great river and i am sure if you are into 4X4 then he will give you some directions.

I have noticed over the years Brian has been exhibiting at camping shows etc so his place would be more well known then years gone by.

Happy camping. :grin:

I am off to the Wollondilly River station this weekend so will prepare a full report on arrival home next week.

Watch this space.

:cheers
How is it that one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

That looks and sounds a top spot,a long way from us but if you had a week up your sleeve i think it would be worth the drive,Love the idea that dogs can roam free.

Wollondilly is a lovely peaceful spot. We stayed there some time ago on a couple of occasions. The river was flowing well at that time. Basic toilets - I think some were portaloo type arrangements but fires allowed and as someone has mentioned, pets too. A very scenic drive down into there as well.

Enjoy the weekend.

When's my next holiday??

How funny I just posted a message in your other thread about places to stay. You lucky lucky varmints going there this weekend. We have a a long weekend here in Adelaide, But it will be way to hot to camp here. For me anyway. Instead I will kick back with a few homebrews. :beer

But I hope you enjoy it as much as I have over the last few years.

Cheers

OK folks I have just returned from a sensational weekend at Wollondilly River Station. :armsup

Although there were quite a few people around the place was big enough that others didn't really matter that much,

We camped on the western side of the southern part of the river and it is a great place to swim, canoe or fish(as long as you don't mind not catching anything).

Brian the owner is a little tricky to deal with but basically books you in, points you towards a general area to camp and lets you get on with it. (tip: don't try to stroke his dogs as he doesn't like it)

The place is really picturesque and peaceful (when the people across the river turned their music down).

Can't post any photos here (YET) but happy to email them if you send me an email.

This place, I would imagine, gets pretty busy over long weekends but still worth a visit.

Being a dog owner myself I can totally understand this. I personally always ask the owner/handler if it is alright for me to pat/touch the recipient dog before doing so. It is a gesture that I too appreciate

It is scary what can be transmitted from one dog to another by a human hand.

On the other hand he could very well be protecting himself especially if he knows his dog/s might be a bit on the anti social side.
