Petticoat Link Track, Cabbage Tree VIC 3889

Features

Slaty Creek Campground Number 1 is the first of three campsites along Slaty Creek within the Creswick Regional Park. This area is fantastic for bushwalking, birdwatching and gold prospecting. Take a stroll through the beautiful forest or bring along a gold pan and try your luck panning in the creek.

Camping areas here are located on both sides of Petticoat Link Track, with Slaty Creek running alongside both. No booking is required, camping is free.

A picnic area (camping not permitted) lies alongside the campsites and features the gazebo, toilet block (non flushing), and multiple wood fire barbecues and picnic tables. 

Slaty Creek Campground Number 2 can be reached by a short stroll up the hill behind the toilet block. At this second campsite (accessed by car via Slaty Creek Road), there is a large clearing bordered by logs and one central fire pit / barbecue plate. This second campsite has easy access to all the facilities here at Campground Number 1.

Slaty Creek Campground Number 3 is located three minutes drive from the campgrounds 1 and 2. It features a firepit / barbecue plate, but no toilets or undercover area.

While you're camping here be sure to check out Blue Waters, located less than 10 minutes drive away through the Creswick Regional Park. Once an open cut mine, Blue Waters is now a gorgeous scenic area fantastic for swimming, bushwalking and photography. Surrounded by striking red cliffs, the water is incredibly clear and shines an iridescent blue when the sun hits it.
