Camping on Wallam Creek – BOLLON, QLD


Bollon is located around 600km west of Brisbane between St George and Cunnamulla.  We found a fantastic free camp on the banks of Wallam Creek.  I say “free” however there is a donation box next to the amenities on the main road near the cemetery – and well worth a donation!!

We were nearing the end of one of our trips and had left Cunnamulla with the thought of pulling up in St George for a few days.  The little town of Bollon was on the way so we decided to call into the free camp we’d seen on WikiCamps to have a look – we didn’t get any further!!


  • Large area, 1.5km stretch along the creek.
  • Campsites are on the banks of Wallam Creek.
  • Access to hot showers and toilets in the main street.
  • No power.
  • Water available.
  • Campfires allowed.
  • Peaceful setting.

The camping ground gets quite busy by mid afternoon.  There was probably around 50 campers each night, however, there is ample room.

There is a concrete walkway that stretches the length of the camping ground and continues up to main street in Bollon.

  • Bollon Hotel provides meals and we stocked up some essentials while there 😉🍻🥂
  • Laundromat available.

We also caught a good amount of yabbies while we were there and we visited Deb’s Café in the main street for some hot chips to go with our catch!
