    If it helps, there's free camping on the south side of Narrandera only 2 mins from the town centre. On the river, heaps of room.

    I'll have a look in the morning when I go past. There's public toilets in the park that is 1/2km up the road.
    I'll report back here tomorrow...

    The OLD PLAN. (See later posting for update)
    Leave home Wednesday morning to meet with other travellers from Melbourne.
    For us this will be a run from the Greensborough end of the ring road to the Hume and head north..
    Time?? Meet where??
    Of the Hume at Seymour towards Tocumwal.
    Morning coffee?? Lunch??
    Keep cruising North into NSW. Aim for Jerilderie OR Narrandera to give an easy cruise Thursday.
    Overnight camp?? Jerilderie OR Narrandera camping grounds or free camp at Narrandera???
    Thursday.. Keep rolling toward Forbes..
    Arrive ???

    Feedback please from those participating or wanting to meet up..

    Just to clarify here Al, I'm only trying to give a little local input as I'm working near Narrandera at the moment. Would love to catch up on your way through if you're there on Wednesday arvo! We won't be leaving until early Friday morning.

    Righto folks, the Narrandera "free camp" has toilets but aren't well kept. There is a 24hr Caltex 500m away but don't know if they'd be keen on too many campers using the "customer " showers! Toilets available in town at park. Hope this helps....

    The PLAN.
    Leave home 8:30 Wednesday morning and head to the Hume at Kalkallo.
    Happy to meet with other travellers along the way.
    Morning coffee?? Probably about Seymour

    Lunch where we find it.
    Keep cruising North into NSW. Aim for Narrandera to give an easy cruise Thursday.
    Overnight camp. Narrandera camping grounds or free camp at Narrandera?
    Will check out Free camp but will stay if it meets with management.
    Thursday.. Keep rolling toward Forbes..
