Yarrowyck Crossing Reserve

December 2013 YARROWYCK CROSSING RESERVE Yarrowyck is a free camp on the banks of the Gwydir River.  Peaceful spot with not many other people camped while we were there.  No showers however there is a pit toilet.  Being December it was fairly hot but the river was lovely to cool off in - kids had a great time! On the way home we had a flat tyre on the camper coming down Walcha mountain - fortunately it happened in a good spot where we could pull over with room to change it!
