The Junction camping area
A 4WD is the vehicle of choice (but not a necessity) for the enjoyable trip through the forest to the campground. The campsites are arrayed alongside the Aberfeldy River, where you can drop a fishing line or heave yourself in for a refreshing swim in the large waterhole. From Walhalla Rd, take the turning down Merringtons Track, continue for 1.3 km and then wheel onto the Junction Track.

This campsite is located in Thomson State Forest
Thomson State Forest, 40 km north of Walhalla, is riddled with rough tracks that off-road vehicles and trail bikes negotiate with practised abandon. Note: it also includes a new 4WD Heritage Trail that begins in nearby Walhalla and takes in Donnelly Creek and many historic sights in the forest. The trees that have taken root here occasionally open out into expansive campsites where large groups settle around blazing fires, and local streams hold plenty of promise for keen anglers. Access is provided by Walhalla Rd, which is narrow and rarely straight.
