Majors Creek Campsite

Majors Creek campsite is situated on the banks of Majors Creek 17km south of Nagambie. Majors Creek runs of the Goulburn River and is home to an array of wildlife including swans, snake birds, water fowl and many more.

The peacefulness of this campsite is only broken by the occasional explosion that can be faintly heard coming from the neighbouring Puckapunyal Military Training site. Despite this Majors Creek is still a brilliant spot with around 100 campsites some near drop loos. It can prove to be a perfect oasis just a few minutes drive from the Hume.

To find this campsite take the turn off to Mitchellstown and continue to drive along until is becomes a dirt track. As you near a rickety bridge you will see the first of the camp sites on your left. Take the bridge, which is apparently safe, although deteriorating, and turn either left or right for more campsites.
Watch the wildlife or take a swim all without losing mobile reception.

Dogs are welcome too.
Bring your own drinking water, take your rubbish home.
