Things to do
There is a bush camping area with no facilities halfway along the Goldfield trail at the Mulgrave River top causeway—at the end of the old logging road. Campers must be completely self-sufficient, carrying food, water and a fuel or gas stove. Camping permits are required and fees apply.
