Description

Avoca' station homestead is situated on the iconic Darling River, just 26 km from the historic town of Wentworth at the junction of the Murray and Darling Rivers. It was the Head Station of one of the original sheep stations in the region, and for a period covered 1,100 square miles. The homestead complex, gardens, tennis court, orchard and outbuildings sit on 100 acres of natural bushland, disused flood irrigation bays; old and new river red gums line 1.5 km of river frontage. You are invited to come, relax and enjoy the serene ambience provided by the buildings and Mother Nature's sunshine, stars, flora and fauna. Camping is available on the property with supply of your own equipment. Sites are unpowered and suitable for tents, camper trailers, caravans, motorhomes and big rigs. Facilities include toilets, showers, picnic tables, fire pits and BBQ. Pets are permitted.

Is this place even open? Tried ringing several times but no answer. Went there but no one around. Found a nice free camp near Pomonal by the water. They missed out.
