Bendeela is a rustic camping ground and picnic area set in natural bushland on the banks of the Kangaroo River arm of Lake Yarrunga (Tallowa Dam), just out of Kangaroo Valley.
Facilities include basic campsites (there is no power to the camping and picnic grounds), toilets and drinking water. No wood, charcoal or solid fuel barbecues or cooking devices can be used. Portable gas barbecues are permitted except during total fire bans.
Permitted activities include fishing, swimming, bushwalking, canoeing and non-powered boating on the Kangaroo River and Lake Yarrunga. Picnic and camping sites are available on a ‘first in first served’ basis and cannot be reserved.
All campers will be required to book in advance. No camping will be permitted without a booking.
This picnic area may be closed during times of flooding or access to Lake Yarrunga is restricted when Tallowa Dam is spilling.
