Warburtons Bridge camping area
This basic campground is accessed off the Vaughan–Drummond Rd. It’s in the same part of the park as the Vaughan Springs camping area, which may prove useful if Warburtons Bridge is full. Up in the north of the park are the foundations of what was one of the world’s largest waterwheels – the Garfield Wheel – and also the well-preserved Pennyweight Cemetery.

This campsite is located in Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park
Goldmining still takes place in the region around Castlemaine, but it’s a lot less frenzied than it was at the peak of the 1850s gold rush. Scattered within the forests that now cover most of the 7500 ha Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park are ruined dwellings and workings, an evocative cemetery, and mineral springs. From Yapeen on the Midland Hwy, take Vaughan Springs Rd; you can also take the Vaughan–Chewton Rd from the Pyrenees Hwy at Chewton.
