Jugiong Showground camp

Jugiong Showground – 7 day – Donation – NSW

Jugiong Showground is in a small, surprising, country town 30 minutes north of Gundagai. I say surprising as it has a population of around 220 people and yet it has a small row of picture boutique shops, in what seems like the middle of nowhere.

This camp location reminds me of the Wizard Of Oz. The showground is the black and white before you go over the road where it’s all technicolor. Larry thinks that sounds like I dislike the showground. On the contrary I like this place a lot!

Jugiong Showground

This small town has a humongous showground with space for a couple of hundred vans if needed. There are lots places to park over looking the Murrumbidgee river. Or you can choose a spot as you drive in under the shade of some trees.

We chose a good spot by the river. Although we had some hot days we wanted the sun to keep our solar topped up.

Have a drive around when you arrive as it is huge. it’s not just what you see when you drive in.

Being a 7 day camp it’s handy that they have a dump point on site. Kids might also enjoy the skate ramp. If you;re into walking, this showground is so big people go for walks in the morning and in the evening for exercise.

Outside The Gate

Jugiong Showground might not have amenities inside the grounds but literally outside the gate you will find:

  • Toilet
  • Swimming pool which has showers
  • Water tap
  • Electric BBQ’s
  • Picnic Tables
  • Playground

This is also were you will find the donation box

Over The Road

Over the road from the Jugiong showground, in the small rural village, you will find these Four diamonds.

The Sir George Pub

Go for a drink, lunch, coffee & cake or dinner. Larry even got some take away beer as he had run out. There onsite bakery means you can always get fresh bread. So if your other half says the’re going to get some bread you might be waiting a while.

The Sir George is beautiful pub inside and out. With old fashioned shutters on the outside and classic brick work on the inside. You will find rooms with modern rustic long tables for a feast and a coat of arms on the wall. The bar has cosy nooks and window seats as well as fires to snuggle up to.

The Sir George Courtyard

The restaurant area is light, bright and open to the court yard. The courtyard opens to walkways to the bakery, goats and a herb garden. All the out door area is surrounded by pruned fruit tree plants, and sensational smelling flowers capped of with mood lighting as the light dims.

The Long Pantry

Head over for breakfast or lunch or have a browse through the shop. This place is gorgeous! Outside the seating areas are wooden and rustic and the building is draped in grape vines. Tables have large Tic Tac tow games for you to play as you relax and take it all in.

Inside is half cafe, half shop. Think home made country jams, relish’s and cakes. They also have modern home-wares and clothing. If you think this might not be relevant to you travellers think again. I spotted a travellers champagne flute, love it! 😀

Lickety Splits Gelato

Come on now, Gelato in the middle of nowhere, what the? We had to try it out. Larry got the Rocky Road and Honey Crunch and I got the Pistachio. All very tasty.

Jugiong Wine Cellar

If the pub is not your seen (although I can’t think of anyone who would not love it!) Have a look at this shop. They sell boutique and experimental wines as well as liqueurs and port. They have a side line of art for good measure.

The Gather & Graze Christmas markets were also on while we were in town. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better.

Jugiong Showground is, at the end of the day, a basic one, but it feels good. And just outside the gate is like the teddy bears picnic, you;re sure of a big surprise 😀
