Australia Day Camping - Myrtle Park

Last January we inaugurated the Barney's Australia Day weekend camping trip to Myrtle Park, and we will be going there again in 2018! From Friday 26th-Monday 29th January, the Barney's community is invited to come camping at this beautiful campsite near Targa, less than 30 mins from Barney’s. The site is an open, grassy camping area, on the banks of the St Patrick’s river and has an undercover picnic area, barbecues and a small kiosk. There are showers and toilets and we have hired the onsite hall for some of the time we’ll be there. There are great bush walks nearby and a few swimming, kayaking and fishing spots too :) We have already booked space for plenty of people to camp, (BYO everything!) and you are welcome to come for the whole time, or any portion of it. There will be lots of opportunity to play games, hang out, swim, eat food and generally be family together. Feel free to invite friends along too. If you are planning on joining us overnight, please let Rob Rowlands know (email: or join the event on our Facebook page (‘Tasbarneys’).

If you would really like to come and camp, but don’t have access to a tent, Barney’s may be able to help you. Speak to Liz Goodacre or email her on for more information. You can see directions to Myrtle Park here. It'll be an awesome weekend and we hope to see you there!
