Dispersed bush camping alongside a creek, with free gold.

Ophir was a Gold Rush settlement, and a pan can bring back a bit of colour from the Lewis Ponds and Summer Creek. Great fun for the kids.

There are quite a few spots to camp, some only accessable by 4wd. There are many little tracks around the area worth exploring if you want to stay away from other campers.

There are historical remanants of the gold mining days around the area and sours are available through a working mine (Gunnadoo).

Toilets, picnic tables and fireplaces are available. Water from the creek should be treated before use.
