We camped in the carpark down near the toilets as opposed to this section. No signs. Another camper there. No one seemed to mind. Toilets and bbq with lovely lawns overlooking river. Nice town with good walks around lagoon and cliff tops.



Some nice spots however those close to town appeared to be long term tent folk and so after some difficulty turning back ( as some of above mentioned folk had camped in turn spots) went to Holder Bend reserve which was far easier to access and a nicer stay.

Nice area with lots of room (just keep driving west - the area just goes on and on). As close as it was to town it was still quiet although a lot of people tend to hoon along the access track.
