Vaughan Springs, formerly a large gold rush township called ‘The Junction’, features a mineral water spring which is still available to drink from today. To the north you will find the old Spring Gully Junction Mine and its an enjoyable walk along the Eureka quartz reef.

Free camping is available at the Upper Terrace Campground, a short distance from the day-visitor area which is provided by the Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park. The camping area is small and rather cramped with only half the sites shaded. There’s only space for a few caravans and a half-dozen tents, so get there early if you want to stay during holiday periods.

The turn-off to the campground is on Vaughan Springs Rd.
