Dargile camping area
The Dargile camping area is accessed from the Heathcote–North Costerfield Rd. On the way there, head up Mt Ida or to the Viewing Rock Lookout in the McIvor Range for some great views; from the latter you can hike down to the Heathcote Powder Magazine, where explosives were kept during the gold rush. The remains of the Graytown POW Camp are in the eastern section of the park, accessed off the Heathcote–Nagambie Rd.

This campsite is located in Heathcote–Graytown National Park
The declaration of this land as national park in 2002 ensured the protection of the state’s biggest forest of ironbark and box, and the diverse flora and fauna that is found there, including endangered orchid and parrot species. The region’s fascinating human history is embodied by significant Aboriginal sites and the ruins of gold-rush structures and a World War II POW camp. The park is north of Heathcote and can be reached via the Heathcote–North Costerfield Rd or the Heathcote–Nagambie Rd.
