    Andy, what would be the best dates to get a decent camp area in this spot? That is probably the first question. Secondly, I dont mind rolling the sleeves up to clean the place up from glass but is there an alternative which could accommodate us all

    Thats why i chose the week before the week before Australia Day. I reckon we'd have half a chance mate. Its really Late in the holidays for Christmas break so most would be gone and early for Aust Day celebrations.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    Yeah Its really hard to say to be honest mate.

    I went up one year on Australia Day weekend and it was busy.

    In that area the far left spot under the shade was all gone with a big group of 5 cars.

    The middle section was taken up with 5 cars and then very end was taken up with 2 cars.

    It's a gamble really.

    I really don't know Krisso but to take up the whole area would be a standard weekend in Feb and we all turn up on the Wednesday until Monday/Tuesday etc but that doesn't work for kiddy school holidays obviously.

    It really is a great relaxing spot with some of the best coloured sunsets in our country. Unfortunately as AB mentioned earlier we stopped visiting some years ago due to the unfortunate glass issue with our young families. Honestly reckon we spent 2 hours on our last visit after car loading cleaning up others crap. Maxhead & AB are onto a great idea with rakes to bring along. Could also make a fun afternoon of it all together with a prize for best removal contraption of the day and better for years to come :-) Google ideas below for blueprint starters :-)

    @garett mate. Travellers from the North can cut off 30 mins by turning right at the strawberry farm/bait store thingo not too far over the Tocumwal bridge into Vic. No need to travel into Strathmerton town and back up again.

    Yeah that does cut off a lot of time but Google Maps won't tell you that. Probably because it's a dirt road but very flat and straight road for sure!

    The National Park side of Ulupna will be quieter. Theres a massive spot there, not on sand, but a nice hard packed surface with the beach right in front of you. So little chance of camping on broken glass. But. No dogs allowed in that area.

    I guess there's a million other spots around there we can find if it's taken there too.

    Whoever is first up there can take NP directional signs with them for the rest of us.
