Yaraka


This place has been mentioned back in 2013 by Herbie but a few things have changed. The cost is $3 per night for a powered concrete site and there is a beautiful salt water pool and amenities block. (I kid you not!)

There are new owners at the pub (which featured on Australian Story two years ago). There is now full mobile coverage and the pub cooks beautiful meals every night.

This place is freecamp heaven and I'm surprised there aren't more nomads coming to this place. Oh, I forgot to mention the tennis courts, croquet area and the golf course which is under construction.

Yaraka is 160 kms eastish of Blackall and today only 7 kms is still unsealed and even that is under construction.

If you make a donation to the RFDS, the pub owner will take you to the top of Mt Slocombe to see the sunset.

This is a town that takes RV friendly to the extreme.

Hi Villa, Yes there's a tower on Mt Slowcombe so you have full service.
