Vaughan Springs was formerly a large gold rush township called ‘The Junction’. It became a favoured alluvial gold and market gardening locality for Chinese miners. Today, it is a good place to sample the mineral water and for a stroll along the Loddon River.
Camping is available at the Upper Terrace Campground, a short distance from the day-visitor area.
No booking is required. Camping is on a first in, first-served basis.
Non-flush toilets and an electric barbecue are available. There are no fireplaces provided and dogs are not permitted. Access to the mineral springs, family walks and a lookout are also available.
All campsites are unpowered. They provide easy access for regular sized caravans and a grassed tent area for those walking the Great Dividing Trail.
