Warburtons Bridge Camping Area


Warburtons Bridge Camping Area

Located on a scenic bend of the Loddon River, off the Vaughan - Drummond Road, Warburtons Bridge Camping Area offers a relaxed semi-bush camping experience with the convenience of picnic tables, fireplaces and a toilet.

It makes a great base for exploring the Castlemaine Diggings and the surrounding Goldfields. Take a walk through the diverse mining landscape of nearby Devils Gully or relax and enjoy the wildlife and wildflowers in spring. When the water is high enough you can fish in the river or launch a small boat or canoe. Dogs are permitted but must be kept on a lead and under control at all times.

Visitor Tips: The campground is unpowered. No fees or bookings are required. The maximum stay is 42 days. Please camp at least 20m from riverbanks and other waterways. No bins are provided, so please take your rubbish home for recycling or disposal. The nearest chemical dump point is located on Bridge St, Harcourt, beside the swimming pool.

Prospecting is prohibited at the campground but is permitted nearby. To find out where you can prospect, download the Castlemaine Prospecting Map.

Firewood collection is prohibited, so please bring your own from outside the Park, or a gas camping stove or barbecue instead. Fires are only permitted within the fireplaces provided and may already be in use. Please ensure that: a three-metre area is cleared of anything flammable around your campfire; that you have at least 10 litres of water available for immediate use; and an adult is in attendance at all times (awake, within 50m and with a clear line of sight). No fires may be lit on a day of Total Fire Ban, including campfires, solid and fuel barbecues and ovens. Built in and portable gas or electric barbecues may be used provided that they meet the conditions above.

Warburtons Bridge is in the North Central fire district. On Catastrophic Fire Danger Rating days the Park will be closed for public safety. Do not enter the Park. If you are already in the Park, leave the night before or as early as possible in the morning. Bushfire safety is a personal responsibility. Check the Fire Danger Rating and for days of Total Fire Ban at www.emergency.vic.gov.au, on the VicEmergency smartphone app or call the VicEmergency Hotline on 1800 226 226.
