Tunnel Spur Flat camping area
This area was named after a 100 m tunnel dug between the Howqua River and a lengthy water race that terminated at a now-defunct water wheel 4 km south of Sheepyard Flat. Horseriders can make use of the horse yards here Nov–May, as well as the ones further south at Frys Flat; bookings must be made in advance through Parks Victoria.
Who to contact: Parks Victoria 13 1963
This campsite is located in Howqua Hills Historic Area
Remnants of the goldmining that took place in the Howqua Hills are scattered about the area, including an old water race and a smelting furnace. A particularly poignant historic sight is the former home of bushman Fred Fry, who left his mark in the form of many huts around the region. Horseriders join bushwalkers in exploring this lovely area. Turn onto the signposted Howqua Track from the Mansfield–Mount Buller Rd just east of Merrijig.
