FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

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 🔌
  • Firewood bundle 🔥
  • Yabbies for Bait 🦐
  • Art class 🎨
  • Resin workshop 👍

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.

Check out Meralda Station on Facebook and Instagram. You’ll also find them on WikiCamps and you can book through Hip Camp (Hip Camp used to be You Camp). See here for Meralda Station stay on Hip Camp.

    Hi Guys,
    I am almost ready to hit the road with my van and I am interested in what you call Boost for the internet. Can you please advise what you actually use to get “Boost”.
    Probably a silly Question but I am newbie so I can ask silly Questions I guess.

      Hi Stuart,
      Boost is the pre-paid phone sim we have in our phone that we use for internet. Boost customers have access to the 4G Telstra Mobile Network.
      And, there are no silly questions here Stuart!
      Hope that helps, have a good one
