The Skippers township Camping Ground is a magical area. The drive out here is a bit of a trip, it is steep, narrow, windy, huge drops-offs and generally a no-go zone for rental cars. This is a very historical area, with heaps of great stories about the gold diggers. The campsite at the end of the road is amongst the ruins of the town that used to exist here, there are rocky terraces around an old cemetery and school, please enjoy what is left there, it is illegal to remove any artefacts.
This is an awesome place for mountain biking and walking to explore the area.

Fantastic spot with flush toilets and great views on the trip in. Narrow access road and can be a little rough in areas but a vehicle with good ground clearance will make it no problem
