Beardy Creek Free Camp

Beardy Creek is approximately 8 kilomteres north of Glen Innes on the New England ... It is a free camp with a forty eight hour maximum stay. (Camps Australia Wide 7 #148)

I am standing up on the track which the truckies would use.

There is plenty of room for large vans here, and it is a good spot for quick overnight on your way though to see one of the majestic national parks in the New England Region.

 We enjoyed our friendly time in Maryvale but it was time to move on again. In keeping with our motto of taking it easy, we travelled just 200km after attending church first at Warrick. Our destination this time was at Heritage Park on Beardy Creek just north of Glen Inness.

Got to keep an eye on the rising creek levels

We generally average 80k/h but the hills slow us down significantly. Rob was very concerned about the brakes on the motorhome as they were shuddering something fierce when heavily applied. I was to drive within eyesight behind to reduce the stress on the brakes and to be within cooee if something terrible happened.

Hardly a soul in sight.
Nothing happened on the trip. The grounds are very wet and we chose not to camp at the 'proper' camp grounds as it was so boggy. instead we went just 50m further to what appears to be a very large truck stop. Rob reckons that not many trucks would stop there due to the approach from the road and they certainly can't veer off the hard track. Once we had parked and settled, we enjoyed relaxing and looking out with the creek just metres away. We weren't going to be doing much walking since there was a gently but constant drizzle of rain. We were watching the already high river to ensure that it wasn't likely to go any higher.
