As you drive out of Tamworth towards Armidale and past the Moonbi Range you will come to the delightful little village of Bendemeer on the MacDonald River.  My husband remembers seeing Platypus swimming in the pools created by the large boulders in the river when he was younger. Apparently they are still found in the clear waters but decided to hide during our visit.

There is a big pub in town - the Bendemeer Hotel which sits on the river bank with plenty of car parking, great country meals and accommodation. As you turn of the New England Highway towards Bendemeer you will see a  small caravan park - next to the service station with drive-through sites. This is within easy walking distance to the Bendemeer Hotel and town.

A large free camping area is located at the Rodeo Grounds – an honesty box is situated at the beginning of the drive towards the parking area. This seemed to be popular with several vans staying the night and enjoying drinks around a fire. Off the main road and fairly quiet. 

A lovely general store in town which also operates as the PO has a covered verandah along the side overlooking the garden where you can to enjoy coffee after you morning walk.
