Information

Free camp area situated in an open dry sclerophyll forest on gravel this is a quiet spot at the end of a cul-de-sac. Access is via the unsealed Neilborough Road.

The road and parking area are suitable for caravans and campervans and small buses. There are drive-through sites available.

Designated sites are scattered around a circuit road. All are level, graveled and lightly shaded. Some have a table and BBQ (gas cooking preferred) and all are short (6-7m). A bus parking area is without shade.

Fires can only be lit in the fireplace provided, and if it is not a day of Total Fire Ban. BYO wood. There are no bins or water at the site. No horses, dogs, or drones.

There is a very large shelter shed and an old dam in the separate day area.

The Old Tom Mine site is an easy 30 minute return walk, and is a popular spot for fossicking and prospecting. Explore remnants of both alluvial and quartz reef gold mining techniques from the 1800s. See the Old Tom Reef mine, the remains of a puddling machine and the site of old cyanide vats, used to reclaim gold from old tailings sands.
