Information

Jimna State Forest’s landscape is a rich green mosaic of sustainable pine forest plantations and contrasting native forests.

The area has a colourful history of goldmining, with all the 'gold rush' fever that entailed. The last flurry of mining activity in the 1940s yielded 2.8kg of gold.

Jimna township developed largely around the timber industry. Steam-driven sawmills processed timber at Jimna and nearby Sunday Creek.

Yabba Creek is a great place for birdwatching, exploring the creek and discovering its aquatic wildlife. Watch the water quietly around dusk and dawn to spot platypus.

The Peach Trees Camping Area is situated beside Yabba Creek in open forest. Camping permits are required and fees apply. A camping tag with your booking number must be displayed at your campsite. Either book on-line or by phone.

Peach Trees Wheelchair Friendly camp site is specifically designed for people with a wheelchair. A disabled sticker must be displayed on the vehicle windscreen.

Number of sites: open area for 300 person capacity without separately defined sites. Camp sites are suitable for: tent camping beside your car; caravans; camper trailers; campervans; motorhomes; large groups. Facilities: water (unsuitable for drinking without treatment as it is pumped from the creek and may contain organisms that can cause illness),flush toilets (including wheelchair accessible), shared fire rings (bring your own clean, untreated firewood, such as mill off-cuts), and walking tracks, swimming and horse riding.

Before travelling check Park alerts for information about conditions in the Park as well as fire safety restrictions.
