White Womans Waterhole camping area

Camper trailer Caravan access Dogs allowed Free Picnic area Ranger Toilets Vehicle-based camping Wood fireplace Scenic drives Walking trails

This is a large, shady area and the only place in the forest where you can camp. Several walks radiate out from this site: the White Womans Walk highlights the diverse vegetation, while the Old Railway Walk retraces what was once part of the Great Southern Railway. According to local legend, the waterhole got its name from the single survivor of a shipwreck off Ninety Mile Beach, who was subsequently cared for by local Aboriginal people. Access to the camping area is signposted off Napier Rd (Won Wron Rd), reached via Carrajung Rd, which is south from Woodside.

The Won Wron State Forest is flush with yellow stringybark, while a variety of gums crowd into the area’s damp gullies. A scenic driving circuit takes you past remnants of the region’s logging history, such as sawmills and pits, fire towers and a tramway bridge. Situated 15 km north of Yarram, the forest is accessed from the South Gippsland or Hyland hwys.
