The soil gets redder as you approach the great little western town of Bollon, sitting on the banks of the peaceful Wallam Creek.
At the free caravan and camping area there are toilets and showers and plenty of shady spaces to park the van for a few days on the edge of the picturesque creek. An easy 1.2 kilometre stroll along the creek-side walkway provides access to the little town’s main street. Have your camera ready, as Bollon is famous for emus strolling the streets.
If you do one thing in town, spend the afternoon retracing Bollon’s rural history at the Heritage Centre or browse around the historical shearing display at Deb’s Cafe. For the serious campers and four-wheel drive enthusiasts, Thrushton National Park is 60 kilometres north of Bollon via dirt roads.
Experience the beautiful Balonne Shire your way. Do you prefer to chill out on your own, meet other travellers or get to know a local? Whether you imagine quiet nights by the campfire or the lively atmosphere of a country pub, turn your dreams into reality when you visit the west. As the sign on the Bollon Pub aptly sums up, “there are no strangers here, just friends you haven’t met yet”.

Thurston National Park is for the serious bush campers and four-wheel drive enthusiasts! There are no facilities, so prepare to be totally self-sufficient and well-equipped.
On arrival to the 4WD camping area, you will discover the ruins of the Thrushton homestead and woolshed which serve as a reminder of the area's previous life as a sheep property. The homestead was originally part of Dunkeld Inn, near Thallon and was relocated via 40 horse-drawn carts in 1921. There is a diverse range of plants and animals that thrive within Thrushton and over 100 species of birds have been recorded in the area.
Thrushton National Park is 40km north-east of Bollon and 102km west of St George.
