We had heard the fishing was good, so decided to stay the next day as well. After breakfast we headed back to Balla Balla road & went further along it down to the boat ramp. You can also camp here & plenty of people were, but it's on a salt/mud flat & very open & exposed, the creek was much better. Unfortunately you couldn't really get to the water, as the tide was out.
When it was up you could fish from the boat ramp, but there wasn't much room. Again I am told we need a boat! We decided to head back to camp & have a fish there instead. Mat got a few bites, but kept getting snagged on rocks, so after breaking off, we called it quits. We had a really quiet afternoon enjoying the scenery & sunset. The amount of birds was amazing as well, from black swans, pelicans to fire tail finches.
We decided one day was enough & packed up the next morning to head into Millstream national park, more on that next. Balla Balla was a good free camp. It would make an ideal overnighter as the road in is excellent & it gets you away from the highway. There are no facilities, no drinking water & not a lot of firewood around, there is phone reception though.
