Situated on the Barwon River just 5km outside of Walgett, Muddy Waters is a Fisherman’s dream... Enjoy direct river access and try your luck at the seasonal bounty of Murray Cod, Golden Perch (yellow-belly) and huge blue crayfish! Muddy Waters is an ideal location for your adventures and outback experience. Walgett has a rich Indigenous and agricultural history, with significant sites located nearby. Walgett means “where two rivers meet” and Muddy Waters is less than 1km by boat from the junction of the Namoi and Barwon River. Set up base here and do daily tours at your own leisure. Brewarrina Fish Traps are 130km west & Lightning Ridge & Grawin/Glengarry Opal Fields situated 70km north. Enjoy a soak in a number of artesian bore baths in the shire like the often overlooked and quieter one in Walgett. No toilets here - campers must be self-contained and please leave no trace. Dogs welcome but kept under control as we have farm animals and dogs. Access to the campsites is possible for all types of vehicles and rigs. Campfires ok, and free firewood to collect.

Muddy Waters - absolute river front
Good place to stay nothing was a problem. River was in flood and our sight was under water. It was no problem to stay at the creek sight, with plenty of fire wood and lots of carp for the kids to catch to keep entertained. Looking forward to going back again
