Bendethera Bender

Bendethera Bender

I am proposing a one night camp at Bendethera in the Spring.

For those that have never been, Bendethera is the site of an old homestead situated on the Deua River in the Deua NP. Extensive grassy flats provide plenty of open camping space easily accommodating large groups. For 4WD access bush camping, Bendethera is hands down the best in NSW.
This trip will be on unsealed roads all the way from Michelago over the Tinderry Mountains, Anembo and Jerrabatgulla before entering the Deua NP and commencing the low range driving up the to Dampier trig then descending into the Deua valley. Travel time from Michelago is about 3 hours.
** Note that Bendethera Campground is currently CLOSED until further notice due to flood damage. This trip is obviously conditional on it reopening **
Bookings are required. Cost $6 booking fee only, per car with up to 6 persons allowed per car/booking. Do NOT book yet. I will advise when the campground is open and bookings for the proposed dates are being accepted.
* NO trailers permitted on route. There is an alternate route via Moruya that permits trailers who wish to make their own way there.. allow 5-6 hours **
