Free Camping At Orroroo – Grong Grong & Merbein Common

We’ve just spent the last three nights free camping at Orroroo, free camping at Merbein Common on the Murray and free camping at Grong Grong. It’s been an awesome three days!

At Grong Grong we stayed in a massive rest area just north out of town up the Newell Highway. A few trucks came in overnight but overall it was pretty quiet.

The next morning we headed off to Merbein across the Victorian border. We met up with some friends from the MARS Enthusiasts camper trailer group and we camped on the Murray River at the Merbein Common free camp. It’s a great place to camp. It is absolutely massive with loads of tracks to riverside camping areas.

On our way out of camp we had a load of fun. It had rained a lot overnight so the tracks were wet and a bit slippery so it was a bit of a job getting out. At one point we got lost and our friends Scott and Michelle had to come and rescue us. We can’t wait to camp with them both again.

Free Camping Just Outside Of Orroroo SA

Yesterday we travelled about 500km to Orroroo. We are currently camped up out of town at a free camp at Orroroo with our friends Kev & Deb who are travelling with us for the next four weeks. The Orroroo free camp is not a long way off the highway but the road doesn’t see a lot of traffic. It got very cold last night down to -2 in the early hours.

Today we are moving on to the camp at the old abandoned ghost town of Farina. It’s going to be great – we love Farina!
