Skipworth is the largest of the camping areas that dot the Upper Goulburn Historic Area, hosting around 50 campsites and related amenities. It’s also one of several places run by local management committees, who charge a small camping fee to help cover their activities – fees are usually collected by volunteers on-site. It’s located about 7 km from Jamieson down 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.
