About Georges Junction
Located by the stunning Oxley Wild Rivers National Park at the base of the Great Dividing Range, Georges Junction is a secluded and peaceful getaway on the banks of Georges Creek and the Macleay River. This beautiful spot is a camping haven, and offers a unique and picturesque place in which to unwind and rejuvenate.
Things to do in Georges Junction
Fishing is a hot topic around these parts. There’s actually a bass lodge across the road that provides cabins if you’re not fussed on having an authentic camp experience.
If you’ve got a canoe, bring it! This place is particularly impressive when the water levels are up. In fact, being on the cusp of the Great Dividing Range means you’ll come across some stunning views of rock walls and mountain ranges as you get further upstream.
If walking tracks are more your thing, this place will impress. Parts of the region are actually included in the Bicentennial National Trail, which is a staggering 5330km long and stretches from Cooktown right down to Healesville in the south.
If you’re not really keen on physical exercise, there’s plenty of vehicle-based stuff to do in the area as well, starting with a stop at the famous Taylors Arms Hotel (The Pub with No Beer)! It’s back past Bellbrook, but works well if you are heading out at any stage. You’ve also got the Waterfall Way taking in some dramatic sights – certainly not to be missed.
