Tunnel Bend camping area

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

This camping spot, hosting around 20 sites, is 19 km south of Jamieson via the Mansfield–Woods Point Rd. The significance of the area centres on a water-diversion tunnel, now a historic relic, that was fashioned so that the old river bed here could be mined. The settlement of Ten Mile, established in the 19th century, used to be close but was destroyed by the fierce bushfires of 1939.

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.
