About the event
A relaxing weekend with the local All Points Camping team. The historic venue provides lots to see and do.
This attractive campground is set in an old gold mining area full of exploration opportunities. The Nelson Creek village includes a store, hotel and pottery shop on a terrace immediately above the camping and recreation area. The campground is next to the creek, where you can go gold panning and has numerous sheltered campsites. You will find clean toilets, children's play equipment, including a flying fox, BBQs, picnic tables, running water and a swimming hole. A track leads through a tunnel and over a swing bridge to a number of interesting short bush walks. Worth seeing as it has been intensively mined with tunnels, tailraces and hand-stacked tailings. A wheelchair accessible track is easily reached by road and a gold-panning area is signposted. Cost is $10 per adult a night, Child 0-16 years $5; $25 per family (up to 4 children).
The hotel over the road has showers available.
