Bollon

Bollon township sits on the banks of peaceful Wallam Creek. The free caravan and camping area complete with showers and toilets is the perfect spot to rest up for a few days. Take a stroll into Bollon along the new 1.2 kilometre creek-side walkway. Keep an eye out for koalas, echidnas and emus. Kangaroos laze in the backyard of the Post Office and sheep graze the paddocks adjoining the main street. If you do one thing in town make it the Nullawokka Aboriginal Tour run by Bill, which includes bush tucker morning tea like you'll experience nowhere else - wattle seed scones, lemon myrtle cakes and kangaroo pizza. Bill is a descendant of the Kooma People and everyone raves about the tour!

Spend the afternoon retracing Bollon's rural history at the Heritage Centre or browse around the historical display at Deb's Cafe.

For serious campers and four-wheel drive enthusiasts, Thrushton National Park is 60 kilometres north of Bollon via a dirt road.
