This peaceful campground at the mouth of Turon River is very popular with 4WD enthusiasts, as you’ll need a bit of 4WD skill and savvy to access it.

Being located right on the river, it’s also great for those who want to enjoy trout fishing or canoeing or just paddling in the water when the weather is hot.

The grassy flats of riverbank are lined with she-oak, and you’re likely to spot kangaroos and wombats hopping around here at dawn and dusk. You’ll also see plenty of evidence of the early pioneers’ mining activities, which once thrived in the area.
