Heading To Yanda Campground

Yanda Campground is on the Darling River and is one of three camps in Gundabooka National Park. As we’ve been down the road in Bourke for Larry work and station job, we thought we’d go for a drive to check one out.

The road to the National Park from Bourke was mainly dirt road. Although it was a long way to go on dirt, it wasn’t actually that bad. It was graded and we would have taken the van all be it slowly. Obviously that would change with rain etc.

In contrast to the dirt main road, the road in to the Yanda Campground is graded and gravel. You’ll see signs on your way in showing where the camps are, in both Gundabooka & Toorale National Parks. As well as, a sign reminding you to book online for your stay.

After stopping near one of the BBQ areas we had a walk down to the river. The Darling looked quite full as it looked like you could have put your boat or kayak in right off the grass. You could certainly fish off the bank.

Tents are ok and this would be a good area to set up, if you’re allowed to set up here that is. You can see where others have had a camp fire in the area at some point.

There are 10 unpowerd sites available for use. Caravans and campers have dedicated set back areas to use, tents too. One of which looks like a drive through area for larger vans.

Close by is a large undercover picnic seating area. If there are a few of you camping together this would be a great area to have a drink or meal together. On the other hand maybe meet some fellow campers.

Adjacent to this large seating area is one of the two electric BBQ areas. Each is undercover and has a picnic table. In fact the other BBQ area is conveniently located along the row of camping areas.
