Pinedale Motor Camp, Wakamarina Valley Feb 12, 2009
Pinedale Motor camp is a great place for a quiet holiday, set alongside the gentle crystal clear Wakamarina stream which has plenty of deep holes for swimming on hot days, and plenty of mature trees for shade. The amenities are well maintained and adequate, there is a nice big lounge with an open fire place for colder days and lots of books and magazines for campers.
Also there is gold in the Wakamarina stream if you work for it, and gold pans are provided for all campers to give it a go and try there luck.
As this was a major gold mining area in days of old, you can be assured of finding specks of colour and small nuggets.
There are many good trails to follow in the bush to where the gold dredges worked, including a long tunnel that was hand hewed, and you can walk through it even now.
The only bad thing about this camp is the sandflies and mosquitos so be sure to bring a good repellent and you will be fins, without it you will be bitten frequently!
