If you’re after something a little different, Yankabilly Island might be just what you’re looking for. Situated in Pomona and with Darling River frontage in the south western corner of NSW, the property is surrounded by a wide, 3 km Billabong.
Both the river and billabong flow throughout the year making it a haven for wildlife. You’ll be warmly welcomed by Alan and Terri Marshall the hosts of Yankabilly Island.
There’s numerous camping and caravan sites near the water’s edge and it’s teaming with birdlife, friendly cattle, lots of pelicans and other water birds so well behaved dogs are welcome. They’ll love a swim in the billabong.
Campers should be fully self-sufficient with drinking water and toilet. However, there is a pit toilet for those who do not have their own. They even supply free firewood, available for your collection and use during your stay.
The Pomona boat ramp is situated 3 km away and mooring is available on the property.
The site is home to a small farm of sheep, cattle and chickens and there’s 20+ fruit trees in their orchard. Seasonal fruits are available as are jams, fruit syrups and free range eggs. They also have an artist studio/shop to browse through and stock a few basic grocery supplies for campers.
As there’s more than three kilometres of water children must be supervised at all times, some areas have steep banks and deep water. You can fish, kayak, canoe, swim or explore the walking tracks. You’ll find it on our Camps Australia Wide app.
