Bendemeer Common Guide

Area behind the TSR on the western side of the New England Highway. The granite here is so sharp that you will be crying for your mummy. But the features are so good, you will be winking at your lover.

access issues

public but its my understanding that it has been leased to a local for grazing.


Please close all gates that you enter into and out of TSR, please don't spook stock and Above all PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE ANY RUBBISH! This is the easiest way to get locals off side!
