Willie Retreat

Written by


Willie Retreat is in the middle of the Macquarie Marshes in central NSW. The closest town with facilities is Warren, approximately 110km to the south.  Willie Retreat is a small farming property with some remanent bush. The area behind the camping is a good spot to look for bush birds. It also makes a great base from which to explore the surrounding marshes.
