Clunes Caravan Park is situated in the heart of the Gold Fields. It is here, where gold was first discovered in Victoria during what became “THE GOLDRUSH” in the mid 1800s. Clunes is an ancient, historical town with many old buildings and quaint gardens.
Clunes is surrounded by many historical towns: Maryborough and Ballarat only 30minutes away.
Bendigo 1 hour and Melbourne in under 2 hours.
Then there is also all the historical mining towns jotted around, each with their touch of history, farmers markets, antique markets, brick-a-brack markets, swap meets, and speciality shops.
Alternatively you can just sit back and enjoy the peacefulness of the caravan park, situated alongside the Creswick Creek, with huge shady Elm trees, green lawns and beautiful gardens listening to the birds going about their daily doings, spot the Platypus, you will have to be very early and quiet, for this one. Venture across the street for a coffee, rummage around some of our wonderful treasure shops and finish the day at the “Lucky Strike Restaurant” or the Pub for dinner.
