Jerry’s plains recreation reserve

We drove about an hour to our next camp at Jerry’s Plains. Again we found this on WikiCamps.

When we arrived only two other vans and a tent were already here. As it’s Australia day I thought it would be packed.

We set up and said “hi” to our neighbours, asking them if any shops or pub’s were near. At this time the pub around the corner had closed down but a servo was over the road from it, it’s only a 5 minute stroll from the camp site. The place felt good so we stayed for two nights. (Add: The nearby pub is now open 14/10/18)

Drive to Hollydene Winery and Denman

We unhooked and went for a drive, 5 min away to one of the many winery’s in the area. We ended up at one called “Hollydene” where we had coffee. No, we had the best coffee! in the gardens of the beautiful restaurant. The cellar door was open but it was only 10am and coffee was calling.

We continued to Denman which was a great little country town, about 25 min away from Jerry’s Plains. It has everything you need, IGA, Post office, Pubs, Coffee Shops and clothes.

We stocked up at the IGA and visited the post office ( great service).

The following day we filled up with fuel at the servo in Jerry’s Plains and headed off the next day after having two quiet and relaxing days at a great free camp.
