Camping At Wentworth Station Near The Weddin Mountains

We spent the Easter long weekend camping at Wentworth Station in the foothills of the Weddin Mountains. The bushranger Ben Hall used to camp along the banks of a creek here with his horses.

There is plenty to do and see in the area. You can explore the nearby Weddin Mountains National Park and Bimbi State Forest. Wentworth Station was founded back in the 1840s. The property is located smack bang in the middle of Young, Forbes, West Wyalong and Cowra. It’s about an hour to drive to each. We live in Cootamundra and it only took us an hour and fifteen minutes with the caravan on.

Just 20 minutes North is Grenfell. Tucked into the beautiful Lachlan Valley Grenfell is a fascinating gold rush town with great galleries, historic buildings and superb country pubs. There are many events celebrating the town’s rich history and culture. Beautiful red river gums that are hundreds of years old. There’s a heap of birdlife to look at and there are fish in the creek.

Camping at Wentworth Station is an awesome way to spend a relaxing weekend. You can have fires and it’s even pet friendly.
