From Rushworth, follow the Rushworth–Nagambie Rd and then turn onto Green Rd to reach the campground. Once you’ve settled in, walk through the Balaclava open-cut mine and past the remains of puddling machines and the quartz reef that was mined here. Then head south to Whroo’s sombre hillside cemetery, which contains 400 gravesites.

This campsite is located in Whroo Historic Reserve
Secreted within Rushworth State Forest, Whroo Historic Reserve protects the site of an 1850s goldmining town and the fields where prospectors staked their claims. Balaclava Hill was where the biggest finds were made. Take a long walk through this gold-rush history, and also see the rock well that was important to local Aboriginal people. The reserve is 7 km south of Rushworth.
