After a few minutes of corrugation, we arrived at Mays Bend. A large open area, overlooking the bend in the river. In fact, besides the fantastic view along the Darling you wont find anything else here. Then again what more do you need!?
This would be a great camp for those that bring their own power “Solar“, Toilet, Potable Water Tank etc. Then you can get away from it all as long as you like 😀
I wouldn’t suggest camping here if it has or if it’s going to rain. As well as being slippy you might get bogged.
Have A Drive
North Bourke Free Camp is only 15 minutes away from Mays Bend camp. Here you can sit and watch the paddleboat pass, have a BBQ or check out the bridge. Grab some lunch from Kazzas Cafe on the way through North Bourke.
Australia’s oldest movable span bridge is also located at North Bourke free camp. Opening in 1883, it is now closed. You can still check it out from the river bank or pass under it on the paddleboat river cruise.
For boaties there is also a boat ramp for you to pop in your tinny at the same location.
Kidmans CampCountry Retreatis a 10 minute drive away, you can board the Paddleboat River cruise here. A relaxing cruise down the Darling River, with commentary. We can recommend this caravan park, if parks are more your style.
