O’Briens Crossing camping area
O’Briens Crossing is a lovely picnic spot in the north of the park. From here you can walk west to Shaws Lake and Sweets Lookout. Experienced bushwalkers should consider shadowing the Lerderderg River across the park on the 2 to 3 day walk to Mackenzies Flat – the hike involves several river crossings. Head south from Blackwood on the Greendale–Trentham Rd, then turn east on O’Briens Rd.

This campsite is located in Lerderderg State Park
This park takes up a Tasmania-shaped chunk of land between Blackwood in the north and Bacchus Marsh in the south. Its centrepiece is the 300 m deep gorge carved out of sandstone by the Lerderderg River. Well-defined walking tracks expose you to goldmining relics and the local koalas, wedge-tailed eagles and swamp wallabies. Main access is via Lerderderg Gorge Rd, which leads off the Bacchus Marsh–Gisborne Rd.
