About this campground

Thomson Bridge is a small camping area perched above the Thomson River and surrounded by dense bushland.

The campground can be accessed on foot, bicycle or by vehicle from Walhalla Road. You'll find visitor facilities including wheelchair-friendly picnic tables, toilet, a shelter and access paths. This campground has 5 campsites and is best suited to smaller groups.

A convenient base

This site is a convenient base for exploring the surrounding area by foot, bike, train or kayak. The historic Walhalla Goldfields Railway, Thomson River Canoe Trail, Poverty Point Bridge Walk and Walhalla Goldfields Rail Trail are all a short walk away. The historic gold mining township of Walhalla is less than 10 minutes by car or 20 minutes by train.

As this is a basic bush camping site, have a read of our Before you go page so you know what to expect. The campsites are free and can’t be booked, so plan ahead and have another option if visiting during peak periods.
