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

Not too sure if this fits all your requirements, but I have found it to be fantastic on weekends that are not long and popular. The place is called Wollondilly River Station. Attached is the website. Cost is very cheap. There are not marked sites per say, and you can have open fires in the provided places. Plenty of fishing in the river. And if you have a 4wd I believe there are some good tracks in the area. Just don't get stuck in the middle like a saw one clown a few years back. All in all this is one of my favorite places to go in NSW. Pity I can't get there too often now living in Adelaide. But I have found plenty of great places here too.

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 fully understand this and I always personally ask the owner/handler if it is alright for me to pat the recipient dog before doing so.

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


On the other hand he might be protecting himself, especially if the dog/s are known to be a bit anti social.
