Originally set up for hikers tackling Hume and Hovell walking trail, Samual Bollard campground offers a secluded and peaceful place to camp in Woomargama National Park for anyone who has a 4WD. Named in recognition of one of William Hovell’s crew who took the famous overland journey with him, Samual Bollard campground is a picturesque place for camping near Holbrook.
The best camping to be had is during spring and autumn. The weather is mild, with warm days and cool nights ideal for camping and bushwalking. In spring, you also have the added advantage of being surrounded by an extraordinary variety of wildflowers: the dripping purple blossoms of the happy wanderer, the cream eucalyptus dives and the yellow wattles - they not only look beautiful but give the air a sweet perfume.
Around nightfall, as you’re preparing dinner on one of the fire rings, you’re likely to see wallabies grazing. To round it all off, plan the next day’s adventure under the canopy of the eucalpyt forest as you fall asleep under a blanket of stars.
