Nice grassy sites, dam good to swim and kayak in. Dog friendly. Flush toilet. Great views. Kids had fun catching yabbies in the creek. Sun ☀️ and 🌒 rise over the ridge spectacular.

Great place to stay. Lots of wood to burn and great camp fires for cooking and keeping warm. The dam was great for the kids to paddle around in with their kayaks and claim the “Island”.

What an experience; sublime evening up on the hill overlooking the valley. Not another human in cooee and the silence was awe inspiring. A gentle breeze, just a tad more than a zephyr; cool and soft. We enjoyed a meal at the Bundarra pub in the eclectic “outdoor” dining area and the folks there were very helpful re directions. A pretty unique experience.

We loved our week camping at Merridale Acres. The fenced camping area with various old farm sheds and flushing toilet were great. We made good use of the quirky little shed to cook in and for shelter from the sun, wind and the rain at various times. My "kids" (16-23 years) had a blast catching cray bobs in the creek with the nets provided and even caught a few fish in the dam. The site is flat and quite large with numerous fruit trees for shade, a firepit. Very peaceful with the exception of the occasional cows "mooing" and birds. The owner met us on arrival to make sure we knew how to use the generator and pump etc but left us to ourselves only coming to check again a few days later that all was well. We did find the property a little hard to find as I think the distance is probably more like 23kms from Bundarra. Very enjoyable stay. Thank you
