Two pet friendly budget camps at Bundarra, New South Wales

We stopped at Bundarra, a lovely town between Armidale and Bingara, south of Inverell and north of Uralla in the New England region of New South Wales.

It’s always a bonus when a town offers not just one but two budget camping options – and your can bring your furry friend to both:

Bundarra Lions Park

We were very impressed with this pretty park, right on the banks of the Gwydir River.  The large quiet rest area has accessible toilets, firepits, picnic tables, shade and views. It is pet friendly. Please make sure you leave a donation to enable the upkeep.

You’ll find the camp south of town, just 200 m off Thunderbolt Highway beside Emu Bridge.

With a playground and picnic area next door, the local caravan park has showers, toilets, laundry, BBQs, shade, water, power and shade. You’ll find it conveniently near the heritage listed Commercial Hotel (also visited by Captain Thunderbolt). Pets allowed (under control) and it is budget priced.
