After Larry finished his job on the Riverina Broadacre farm, we spent a couple of nights at Meralda Station. This 400 acre property is close to Cobar town centre yet it’s far enough away to be quiet and peaceful.
The road is bitumen so you don’t have to worry about getting here.
Meralda Station Camp
The station camp is located in a bush setting and is surrounded by gum trees. We had sheep in the next paddock. It’s the kind of camp you head to when you want to be under the stars with a camp fire. Fire pits are available and you can buy firewood.
You’re parked near a couple of dams which you can have a swim or kayak in if you have one. If you have a bike you might like to ride into town on the bitumen walking and bike track. A courtesy bus is available to the nearby golf club if you would like to go out for dinner and drinks.
Meralda Station extras:
This station stay has heaps more you can do for an extra fee:
Meet the goats
Women’s healing circle – well being circle – meditation & energy 🧘
Kids art & well-being workshop
Generator – per day hire
Yabbies for Bait
Currently no amenities are here, so campers will need to be self sufficient and leave no trace. That includes having your own toilet, shower, power and water. A bin is provided and pets are welcome.
We had a great happy hour with other couples by the camp fire on our second night. The sunset was stunning as a storm was brewing.
A Short Drive
We had a drive to Fort Bourke Hill Lookout & New Cobar Open Cut Mine. You have a great view down to the mine at the surrounding areas. When you pass through town you might spot the Big Beer Can at the Grand Hotel.
