Rush Dam camping area
Like its neighbour Mulga Dam, Rush Dam is up near the northern boundary of the park. Closer to Bendigo, near the Shadbolt picnic area, you can check out some goldmining history at Old Tom Mine; if you’d like to do some recreational fossicking here, you’ll need a Miners Right permit. The campground is west of Mulga Dam down Camp Rd. Note: bring your own drinking water and firewood.

This campsite is located in Greater Bendigo National Park
This interesting national park extends north and south of Bendigo, and has a number of significant Aboriginal sites plus remnants of the gold rushes that swept through the area in the mid-19th century – amateur prospectors still try their luck here. There’s a great wildflower show in spring, a highlight being the colours of the whirakee wattle, only found around Bendigo. Access roads branch out from the Calder, Loddon Valley, Midland and McIvor hwys.
