Our Activities




Camping


PLEASE NOTE – CAMPING – DUE TO COVID-19 IS NOT PERMITTED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE BY THE GOVERNMENT

Camping is a great way to discover the untouched beauty of our national parks. While enjoying your camping experience.

Up on the mountains, or in our great outback, there are many things to consider before heading out.

 


PLEASE NOTE – 4X4  -DUE TO COVID-19 IS NOT PERMITTED AT PRESENT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE BY THE GOVERNMENT.

We have a great selection of tracks that will suit drivers all of all levels.

The beginners will take in the occasional hill whereas the more seasoned of you will have a wild time taking on the mud and our slippery hill climbs.

The rocky ruts, creek crossing, and mud pits will also be sure to put drivers of all levels to the test.

A stay at Glendon Camping ground is about much more than wearing yourself out on our 4WD tracks.

Once it is all over you can then take it easy and enjoy a deserved picnic at the top of a hill with amazing panoramic views, or maybe you’ll just settle down to a little spot of fishing.

Please remember that all 4WD vehicles should be in good working condition and not overly harmful to the environment.

All 4WD drivers must be fully qualified and respect Glendon Camping Grounds’ safety rules at all times.

Do not enter the water if you are not a strong swimmer.

All of our walks are safe but do a bit of research before you head out and don’t overstretch yourself.

Please don’t disturb any native plant or animal communities that you come across.

Gold Panning

GOLD PANNING

At Glendon we pride ourselves on the variety of activities that we offer our guests and gold panning is one that we are especially proud of. Gold was first discovered here in 1868 and while they are no longer worked, there are definitely still some traces of the stuff to be found today. Come and try your luck!

We hire out gold pans for only $10 per day and it is always finders keepers here.

Feel free to bring your own metal detectors if you have them.

The biggest rumoured discovery here came in at a whopping 55 ounces.

The mines are long closed but there is certainly still some gold left in our hills, come and try your hand at uncovering it for yourself.

Your safety is always of paramount concern to us. Glendon Camping Grounds are a perfectly safe environment but you should also respect nature and know your own physical limitations.

It is always essential that you check out the weather forecast before you head off on any of our bush walks.
