Stayed at "The Wells" in Mungo Brush a few weeks back and thoroughly enjoyed it, although the weather could have been a little kinder. We chose The Wells as we wanted a site where we could have a camp fire and wanted to be near the lake for access for the tinnie.

The National Park areas are nice however by the time you factor in the extra for the kids and then the fee for vehicle access this all adds up. The Riverside camping ground mentioned on a couple of the previous posts are better value if you only require toilets not showers.

Kate n Pete,

Yeh the wildlife was very friendly, with the kookaburra's quiet enough to be able to handfee them. (Probably not really the right thing to do.) And there was also about 3-4 dingos roaming past in the morning and afternoon, one we noticed was fitted with a tracking device.

The wells!

I'd forgotten about that site, that was where we stayed the first time I camped there. Got there late prolly 10-11 pm, was midnight by the time we where set up and went to bed. I couldn't manage to get all the tent pegs firmly into the ground but it was late and wasn't windy so I just went to bed..... about 3am I wake up from a sudden blast of cold air, and have to run outside in my pj's chasing my fly through the bush!! :lol:


Also there was a mother and baby possum who we where able to hand feed some fruit, well the mother at least. She seemed to 'make' the baby stay away from us.

It really is a Magical Spot and the sand dunes.. i had never seen anything like that in my life, we have a pic somewhere of me standing on top of this monster sand dune. We are starting to organise a camping trip now in Jan 09 but the gf wants to go to Barrington Tops. ALl in all i really don't care as long as we go camping!! :?# :armsup

What are the roads like? Can an Astra with a trailer get there in one piece? And, how do you get in there from Taree end?

Thanks for the reply. You were too quick! I was just coming back to do an "edit" and ask one more question: From various comments, there seem to be endless different places to camp. From Google Earth, also an endless number of winding roads & tracks. How do I know where to start looking? :shock: Some have mentioned the Riverside Camping Area, but so far, I can't actually find where it is.

We said this morning a day trip would be the thing to do to check it out. Thanks for the tip so far.

Haven't been on the forum for a little while - have just returned from a sojourn here. What a great spot especially during the week when most people are at work. Couldn't get Mrs Bravo to come home. :grin:
