Picnic Point camping area

Camper trailer Dogs allowed Free No rubbish disposal Ranger Toilets Vehicle-based camping Fishing Swimming

Once again, the name pretty much says it all. Fresh fish plucked from the river could be the perfect addition to your picnic basket. And if it’s hot, a dip is a great way to cool off. If you prefer the excitement of gold prospecting, try sifting the sand that blankets the riverbed. This camping reserve is located 2 km south of Blue Hole and is similarly accessed from the Mansfield–Woods Point Rd.

This campsite is located in Upper Goulburn Historic Area

From the town of Jamieson, the Goulburn River makes several sweeping turns on its way south past Woods Point. This was where the second of Victoria’s gold rushes took place, and its history is now contained within the Upper Goulburn Historic Area. One-time mining settlements, eerie cemeteries and numerous historic buildings await visitors, who can also indulge in recreational fossicking and canoeing. Note: new and improved facilities, including fireplaces, picnic tables and toilets, were due to be installed at many of the campsites in late 2012. Call the DSE for the latest updates on this. Access to points of interest is via the Mansfield–Woods Point Rd.
