If you're hankering to get away from it all, Yanda campground, near Bourke, might just be the outback adventure you’ve been dreaming of. This remote campground in Gundabooka State Conservation Area, next to Gundabooka National Park, is perfect for self-sufficient campers who yearn to explore the beauty of Outback NSW.

Nestled on the banks of the Darling River, you'll have riverside views as you pitch the tent or park the caravan. The majestic river red gums provide a shady spot to relax and let the world drift by. Throw in a fishing line or bring a boat for a relaxing paddle down the river.
