Although it may not have the most comforting name, this is an appealingly spacious campground that’s spread out on the riverbank about 26 km south of Jamieson, off the Mansfield–Woods Point Rd. Take one of the walks winding through the Upper Goulburn Historic Area, which include sections of the Australian Alps Walking Track and treks past old mine sites and through former settlements.

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.
