Woolshed Creek camping area (walk-in camping)
Woolshed Creek is a walk-in campsite close to the southern end of the Mitchell River Walking Track. It’s only a short hike from here to the deep gully that hides the Den of Nargun, a cave where a fierce ancient creature resides, according to Aboriginal legend. The Gunai/Kurnai people request that you don’t enter this important Indigenous site, but simply admire it from outside. From the den, another walk leads up to the Bluff Lookout, which has views over the striking Mitchell River Gorge.

This campsite is located in Mitchell River National Park
Mitchell River National Park is a favourite of canoeists and rafters for its centrepiece network of rocky gorges, complete with rapids. If you’re a hiker who wants to stride out for a few days, hop onto the long track that follows the Mitchell River through the park’s densely forested terrain. You can also confront an ancient Aboriginal story at the Den of Nargun. This national park is 25 km north-west of Bairnsdale via the Bairnsdale–Dargo Rd. Check with Parks Victoria regarding the current status of track closures within the park, often due to weather damage or upgrades.
