Last week I took a short tour of the Riverina district in NSW. I left nmy home town of Cowra and headed south to Young , the cherry capital of NSW. I then went on to Cootamaundra. At the Information centre at the Railway Station there is a very good museum worth a look with just a gold coin donation. FRom here I went to Bethungra and took a look at Bethungra Dam, not much water at the moment but a nice free camp with toilets and sheltered tables. I then went via Eringulla to Wantabadgery where there is a great free camp beside the Murrumbidgee River. Lots of well grassed space with toilets and sheltered tables. One of the best camps you will find. To get there turn at the General Store and follow the River road for a few kilometres until you see a gravel track on your right. This is the way into Sandy Beach camp about 500metres. Next day I went into the town of Wagga and then took the Old Narranderra Road to Berembed Weir. This is another free camp. From here I went to Matong which was showing signs of decline with a row of old shops fenced off because of a fire. The next town of Ganmain I was very impressed with. A beautiful park and a very well kept main street and a bakery as good as you will find. Coolamon was also a very well maintained town and it is pleasing to see these small towns so well presented. The Historic town of Ariah Park is well worth a visit with it`s beautiful old buildings and a well kept park down the middle of the street lined with peppercorn trees. My next night was spent in the Weddin Mountains at the Ben Hall Cave camp ground which is a beauty. There is a walk here to Ben Hall`s cave as well as the nearby interesting and historic Seatons Farm. A look into how tough life was many years ago.
