Children can camp for free (18 and under).

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!  

The River Paddock sites offer picturesque, level camping right on the river, surrounded by River Red Gums leaning over deep water holes. Great fishing straight from camp. Just a short boat ride to the junction of the Barwon and Namoi Rivers. No amenities here, all campers must BYO toilet and take all waste with you. 

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.  

Dogs welcome but kept on lead and 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.

Great spot. Would love to come back when the river isn’t quite as high. Pulled up the biggest blue Yabbie I’ve ever seen but lost him. Not far from town either. Cheers

We had a perfect spot down by the river. The hosts were amazing - friendly and knowledgeable. Very happy to share their knowledge about the area as well as their produce and animals. We got a tour of the farm, our kids got to hold rabbits and collect the chickens eggs and loved it.
The camping spot was nice and quiet and it was very interesting to hear the history - there is some glass (not sharp) left from about 100 years ago when it was a Cobb & CO base. We stayed two nights and planned to explore the town on our day there but just stayed at camp and enjoyed the farm. I would definitely stay again if we were in the region

Highly recommend. Campsite by the Barwon, close to town if we needed supplies. We stayed three nights, and considered staying more but other plans were in place. Luke and Carolyn were very friendly and helpful. The highlight of our stay was a campfire dinner of veggies from their garden, complemented by some yabbies and shrimp from the river. Delightful stay.

Wonderful hosts in the early stages of developing what will be a top campsite on the Barwon River. I would hope that guidelines would be put in place to limit the use by children of campers to constantly roar around the property on their motor bikes. At the end of a day, with the sun setting over the river, it would be nice to hear the birds. Admittedly our visit was during the school holidays still.....
