mikel, are there any other places in the New England area you could recommend? Lynches Creek Schoolhouse out of Wiangaree is a beaut spot, not very big but drop toilets, pristine creek and an old school house open to use....gee I hate giving up these secret locations its taken me years to find.
Where ever we go there will be fire restrictions from October onward I think.

Yes Rob, know what you mean.
There is a spot, Gum Flat about 28km. E of Moree, 3 km. in on the Gwyder river.
About a "1000 acres" of river reserve, heaps of firewood, a new drop loo but not exactly in the best location.
We camped there 2 days (and many times before) on our way back from the COG.
Our only company was around 25 head of the best Murray Grey beef providers one would ever see.
The river holds some good fish, no eels in Western water though, but no White Pointers either.
Like you Rob, I hate giving up those precious camp spots but on our forum group I feel its OK. Just when it leaks onto FB I get a little twitchy Shocked

Another place I've just remembered is Gulgong Show Ground near Mudgee. I've stayed there several times, $20 p/n for power, hot showers etc, walk to a very interesting town, huge rural museum, antique shop and the biggest $2 shop I've ever seen. I will find out if a fire is allowed.

There is a nice spot right on the river down from the bridge at Bingara Mikel. Do you know that one and is it worth thinking about ?

Do know the spot Rory, its pretty close to the van park, not sure what the reaction may be if a number of vans turned up.

We have spent many nights camped on the river anywhere from 3-5km. upstream. Good camp spots but limited firewood, no loos and a bit space restricted for group camping.

I like Rob's idea, the town on the old $10 note. Plenty of wineries close by also....good old Mudgee Mud  Tongue

Feeling generous tonight so I'll give up another of my secret camping spots. About half way between Mudgee and Gulgong there is a TSR (Travelling Stock Route) site on the river, huge grassed area, plenty of firewood but no toilets. Someone has built up a stone weir so there is enough depth in the river for a swim. I have spent quite a few nights here, it's not well known so not many people to share it with.

Rob.

Any further recommendations and dates on this one. Hetty and I are planning our escapes for 2018. Have to be in Melbourne 2nd weekend in June. Trying to fit in as much as we can.

Cold everywhere in June Aart except maybe Darwin.  Grin Grin

In saying that we were at Broke in June this year and it wasn’t that bad at all.

We would definitely be a look in for Broke.
