Camp by the river at Wooloondool campground within Murrumbidgee Valley Regional Park, nearby the town of Hay. Many set up camp at Wooloondool as it’s a great place for fishing. You might be lucky to catch some yellowbelly, redfin, brim, catfish, and carp, as well as crayfish during the season. Lions Fishing Tournament is held every February, part of which is at Wooloondool.

If fishing doesn’t float your boat, take the dog for an easy walk along the riverbank to secluded swimming and picnicking areas. It’s also a great place to launch a kayak or canoe and explore the park through its picturesque waterways.

Wooloondool offers plenty of camping spots for caravans, campers, and tents, within groves of black box trees. River red gums line the nearby Murrumbidgee River, providing habitat for ring-tailed possums, wallabies, kangaroos and wombats. You’re likely to see these at dawn and dusk, whilst tawny frog mouths live and hunt in this area at night.
