Time suggested
Please note
  • It’s a good idea to put sunscreen on before you set out and remember to take a hat
  • Ice, fuel, gas and groceries are available at the villages of Wollar and Bylong.
  • Remember to take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch
  • You'll need to bring your own drinking and cooking water
  • Check the weather before you set out as Spring Gully drive is for dry weather only
  • A current NSW recreational fishing licence is required when fishing in all waters

Wind your way through some of Goulburn River National Park’s beautiful scenery along Spring Gully drive. The 22km car route from Wollar is along an unsealed road, making it somewhat of an adventure as you leave the local farmland behind.

Along the way, you may spot some of the local inhabitants: eastern grey kangaroos watching expectantly as you drive by, while grazing emus and brightly coloured parrots will accompany you along your way as they rest in the majestic eucalypts.

When you arrive at Spring Gully campground, treat yourself by jumping straight into the Goulburn River, or throw in your fishing line to see if you can catch something for lunch – the waters of the Goulburn River make this an angler’s dream.

Or if you’d like to stretch your legs after a long car journey, take a walk along the river past sandstone cliffs, which are home to Aboriginal sites, such as hand stencils.
