Chinese Gardens Camping Area is currently closed.

Please note that the Chinese Gardens Campground is currently closed.

The site had significant works undertaken in recent months to improve the camping experience. These works included bridge replacement, extensive earthworks, reshaping and topsoiling.

Due to recent rains, the site is still recovering and is currently unfit for camping.

It is planned to reopen early November. Booking enquiries will be paused for a short period.

Welcome to Walhalla’s Chinese Gardens Camping Area

The Chinese Gardens Camping Ground is situated on the Main Road approximately 2 km north of the Walhalla Township. This picturesque area on the banks of Stringer’s Creek is in the small valley farmed by Chinese market gardeners during the height of Walhalla’s gold rush in the late 1800s and early 1900s. 


Bookings Are Essential

Use the enquiry link on this page.

Check-in between 10am and 4pm daily.

The camping ground is in two sections. Both sections are un-powered.

The South Side is suitable for 2WD vehicles, camper trailers, small camper-vans, small caravans and tents. Most sites are approximately 10 m x 7 m, with two smaller sites. Sites slope slightly, and some are a little uneven. 

The access to the North Side is by 4WD only and uses a ford across Stringer’s Creek to reach the camping area. Camping spots on the north side are not reserved, so you set up your camp on the available space. This camping area gently slopes towards the creek and has limited flat spaces. The number of campers on this side is restricted.

The Amenities block has 5 suites, each with a toilet and shower. One suite is suitable for less able access. These suites are opened by a coded lock; the code will be advised at check-in. The shower requires $1 coins for each 2 minutes use. There are hot and cold water taps at the rear of the amenities with a bench under for your wash basin. The small Laundry has a washer and dryer.

Free electric BBQs are available in the shelter by the driveway, about 30 metres from the amenities block.

Water is from tanks only and it is recommended that it is boiled before use.

Domestic pets are welcome under owner’s control at all times. Fires are restricted to above ground fire pit eg a chuffer. No fires are allowed on the ground. No fires on days of Total Fire Ban. Generators are permitted between 8:00 am and 10:00 pm only.

There is Telstra mobile phone coverage in Walhalla. A public telephone is available on the footpath near the Walhalla General Store.
