Free camping near home

On our trip back home on Sunday we decided to check out a free camp area which is only 40 klms from our home.....cowwarr-weir 

We took a walk around to check this area out.....

A log to stop anyone staying down this end.....you can only stay if a self contained type van/rig

The water was rushing through and quite loud

This is one side past the log.....

and this is the other side past the log.....not flowing as fast

If it was a bit warmer I would be tempted to have a swim ☺

Inside that log.....think a snake would love it in here

Looking back to where we parked and decided to stay the night ☺☺There is a toilet block to the left just past our Winnie.....

Walking back to near the weir and you can see the water is sure flowing fast out of the gates.....

Looking out over the weir.....plenty of chances to swim/kayak/walk......we want to come back and actually use our bikes next time ☺

Plenty of chances to fish here too ☺


My camera was behaving well for a change lol 

We walked all the way to the end of the path/road....

You could cross this bridge and head to somewhere we did not know, so that would be an option with our bikes ☺☺

Looking towards where the weir becomes Thomson river........and then I zoomed

and there was someone Kayaking ☺

A picture of the Thomson river going back past where our winnie was.....

Could not see any fish lurking.....

Walking back under the lovely trees along here


Speed hump on the road....and the weir 

The bridge we crossed to get here where there are other gates to control the water levels.....
We are now back home again and have already washed and re packed everything ready for another trip sometime ☺☺☺
Going to be a hot day today.......what is happening in your neck of the woods?

  3. Isn't it fun to find a new camping spot to enjoy! I love camping where you can hear the water rushing by. Your warm weather photos are helping me feel warmer. It has been rainy and cool here. xx
