In a grassy clearing on the banks of Basin Creek, you’ll find Tin Mines campground. As the name suggests, the surrounding land was once mined and you can still see remnants its historic heritage scattered throughout the neighbouring bush - a sluice hole, dredge holes, water races and pieces of equipment.

Today, it’s a lovely place to camp and a great option when looking for a family camping holiday. Enjoy the cool shade of the swamp gums, which bear cream flowers during spring, and soak up the solitude. Located on Hume and Hovell walking trail, this secluded campground is often frequented by those hiking the Yass–Albury track.

You might also encounter some other locals: wallabies, wombats and echidnas can all be seen in the area. Noisy gang-gang cockatoos and different species of parrots rest in the trees and feed on the flowers, so get those birdwatching binoculars out. Nocturnal animals, including gliders, live high in the branches and become active as the sun sets, and you might hear the deep hoots of the endangered powerful owls during the night.
