This beautiful camping area is very popular for 4WDriving, horse riding, walkers and bike riders. There are plenty of places to camp either beside the ruins of the old homestead or alongside the Wonnangatta River. The homestead was built in 1860 and was carelessly burnt down in 1957 by walkers who left a fire burning. All that's left is the ruins, foundation and a small cemetery of it's pioneers.
A murder mystery occurred here in 1917 of the station manager and his cook. There have been many rumours but the murders have never been solved.
It can be accessed via three different routes:
- Zeka Spur Track, off Howitt Road from Licola
- Wombat Spur Track, off Crooked River Road from Dargo
- Abbeyards Road from Myrtleford which is the best route that you can bring an offroad camper trailer.
It is a stunning spot, very isolated but breathtaking scenery here in the valley.
