Camp by the river at Wooloondool campground within Murrumbidgee Valley Regional Park, nearby the town of Hay. Many set up camp at Wooloondool campground 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.

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.
