Enjoy a tranquil camping holiday by the water at Lachlan River campground in Kalyarr National Park. Nestled between red river red gums and river cooba on the banks of the peaceful Lachlan River, it’s a secluded spot to get back to nature. Autumn and spring are the best seasons to camp here when it’s not too hot or windy.

Once you’ve set up camp, there’s plenty to see and do. Go fishing, swimming or paddling in the river or enjoy a picnic lunch next to Lake Ita. If you’re eager to see more of the park, take a walk through riverside woodland and open plains along Kalyarr Cultural trail which starts from the campground.

During your stay, keep an eye out for the iconic outback wildlife that call this place home. Red kangaroos, emus and shingle-back lizards are common in this area, and if you gaze to the skies, you might see wedge-tailed eagles soaring overhead.

As evening falls, cook up a barbecue feast and enjoy the beautiful outback sunsets and uninterrupted 360-degree views of the starry sky.
