Plenty of options for caravans, camper trailers, vehicles and tents.

Plenty of options for caravans, camper trailers, vehicles and tents. Camping areas are around the large dam, or by the smaller dam where recently installed nesting boxes have encouraged flying foxes and red rosellas to move in. And there is a water rat living there...looked friendly. Mirrengatta is quiet and private, but close to many attractions within the Goldfields region, if you feel like partaking.

Mirrengatta is 65 acres of towering eucalypts and native flora. It is 6 kms from Clunes, then 1.2 kms up a maintained dirt track. There is a large dam and a smaller dam on the property. It is home to wildflowers, native orchids and ground covers. Bird species include - spoonbills, wrens, ravens, golden whistlers, crimson rosellas, choughs and the occasional kookaburra. Walking tracks throughout allow excellent bird watching and quiet walks.

Well behaved dogs by prior request only. Campfires permitted in a designated area, only when restrictions aren't in place.  No amenities, campers will need to be self-contained and leave no trace.

Our spot was perfect for our van and was the first time our puppy came away with us. Lorraine was very welcoming, letting us know about he farmers market and truck show that was on over the long weekend. The kids had a great time in the canoe which was provided onsite and also the yabbie nets. Our son managed to catch 22 yabbies, although they were small it was a lot of fun for him. Our daughter loved sitting on the number of large tree stumps to read and listen to music. Both kids took a quick dip in the dam and then enjoyed cooked breakfasts over the fire. Fire pit was ready and well stocked with wood upon our arrival. We saw two kangaroos at dusk on one of the many bush walks. Thanks for sharing your beautiful property and will be sure to return.

Brilliant hosts (thanks again Lorraine) and really helpful on arrival and flexible with the booking and changes in requirements. Very peaceful bush site with lovely lake, surrounding scenery and beautiful sunset and sunrises through the trees. Falling asleep while star gazing through the swag fly sheet was an absolute treat. Didn’t have an opportunity to really explore the surrounds due to it being a last minute break away and am already looking at dates to go back for longer.

Quiet, quiet, quiet spot surrounded by trees. Birds coming down to the dam to drink all day long. Exactly what we needed to reset after a crazy few months. Thanks Lorraine.

We loved our stay in Murrengatta - it borders the Clunes State Forest. We enjoyed seeing all kinds of birds and walking through the state forest. It’s a perfect spot to unwind and relax.

We loved camping at Mirrengatta. Lorraine was very welcoming and provided some lovely firewood for us. The dam is beautiful and there's a canoe for visitors' use. Lorraine's two dogs visited our camp and entertained us. Lots of bushwalks along gravel roads and tracks in the nearby Clunes State forest and Dunach Nature Reserve. We plan to stay at Mirrengatta again soon.
