The Oaks campground 7 acre flat campsite with flush toilets, along side Emu Creek where swimming and fishing is possible all year round. 

Girard Campground a 5 acre camp by Gerard Creek, with showers and flush toilets. Also permanent water holes for swimming and lots of turtles.

Twin Dams campgrounds have 8 flushing toilets, two dams with cat fish in them and several separate campgrounds for privacy.  The old competition tracks are near the dams, these are great for those kids and adults with mountain bicycles or 4wd vehicles to test their skills.

There are five more campgrounds with no facilities, what we call bush camping, most next to the creeks like White Eagle camp next to Emu creek largest water hole approximately 200 m of beautiful water, great for kayaks. If you are self sufficient and love solitude this is the camp for you. 

Hilltop camp is 300 m away from Twin Dams, 3 acres of bush camping bound on one side by spotted gum trees and plenty of kangaroos. 


There are a number of activities available, fossicking in the creeks for gold, since the abandon Lunatic gold township from the mid 1800 is just on the property behind us. If you feel lucky. Or towards the back of the property away from the camping grounds we have a couple of hundred kilometres of tracks for the 4wd enthusiast with rewarding views to go with it including Girard Falls a magnificent sight when the river is running. Bush walking, bird watching, mountain bike riders are also very popular.

Absolutely beautiful camp ground. We camped at “the oaks” for three nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The camp ground was pristine, heaps of flat areas to pick from, all well manicured with lovely views and the toilet block was clean and tidy. Extremely well priced for the comfort and quality. The owner and caretaker were both absolutely lovely, and checked in on us every now and then and the check in process was seamless. We had our dog with us and she had an absolute ball. Emu Creek exceeded our expectations, we will definitely be back.

This is a fantastic campsite with excellent amenities. The dedicated fire pits, sparkling clean toilet and shower facilities and thoughtful extras such as sanitary items in the womens bathroom, washing machines and potable make this a convenient place to stay. We loved being creekside, and had a great time exploring on foot and a bit of 4WD action as well - the tracks are full on! We didn't see any other campers besides the occasional vehicle drive past so it felt very private. We'd love to come back, would be great to come in warmer weather so we can swim in the creek. Great place, great hosts.

Had an awesome time staying at Emu Creek. Such a huge property and so well looked after. A good range of 4WD trails from easy to impossible. Bob looked after us well and gave us good tips and recommendations. We’ll be back again for sure.
