There’s only space at Vaughan Springs for a few caravans and a half-dozen tents, so get there early if you want to stay during holiday periods. To the north are the old Spring Gully Junction Mine and a walk along the Eureka quartz reef. And don’t forget to try the local mineral water while you’re here. The turn-off to the campground is on Vaughan Springs Rd.

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.
