The bush… Rural Australia… The Backbone of our proud land…

A place of stark contrasts, unsurpassed beauty, warm welcomes, big hearts, indomitable spirit and tenacious character. Legends like RM Williams, whose spirit lives on in Eidsvold’s history and whose name graces a Centre dedicated to preserving and cultivating the area’s unique bush culture.

The RM Williams Australian Bush Learning Centre was purpose-built to honour this great Australian, showcase his skills and achievements, and bring his passion for bush tradition to life.

We invite you to take a journey of discovery and learn about our culture, history and arts. Our gallery is ever changing showcasing an array of artistic displays and artefacts. Watch leather work demonstrations as artisans create belts, whips and bridles, listen to our resident poet inspire you with his passionate bush poetry, or simply enjoy a warm tea or coffee and soak up the peacefulness of our part of the world.

RV overnight stays most welcome! Make use of our outside bush camp kitchen area and adventure on the playground for those young at heart.  

Visitors have the option to camp overnight at the Centre. In front of the building there is grassed flat ground that offers a quiet spot to stop for a night or two. Campers can kick back, enjoy the tranquillity and watch the resident kangaroos graze nearby, those with a keen eye may spot a joey in the pouch.

Campers and visitors can take advantage of the two different picnic options. The Centre has undercover picnic tables with electric barbecue. Visitors are welcome to use the Bush Camp Kitchen, boasting undercover tables, preparation tables, sink and electric barbeque. A complementary bush tucker garden has been established with native plants available for use. There are fire pits to keep visitors warm and offer a great atmosphere to share stories with fellow travellers

Come and spend a night and experience a first in Australia – “son et illuminere” – a magnificent free illuminating light show projected onto a locally inspired steel sculpture, sharing stories of local characters, RM Williams, bush poetry and entertaining anecdotes from past times.

This is a great site for self contained vehicles although there are public toilets in the complex. There is a large flat area which could accommodate any size rig. Your camping fees include a free light show at night. Entry to the RM Williams display is $5 pp

What a wonderful place, great interpretive centre about RM Williams who was involved with this town. Lovely artwork and craftwork. Camping allowed on the flat area behind the shelter/bbqs for $10.40 pn, pay at the Centre. Bigger bbq shelter on the hill behind centre, this is also where you need to sit to watch the light and sound show nightly, which flashes across special metal panels, brilliant. Large toilet block. Support the town.

This campsite is a credit to Eidesvold extremely clean with immaculately maintained outdoor area. The children's play ground is quite impressive. The site is ok for Big Rigs. Highly recommended. Big Rig Serenity.

Make the most of it as it is council run and they have asked for expressions of interest to off load (sell) it. No-one is going to buy this to keep it as it is. It is essentially a monument to RM Williams paid for with Govt money, quite well done, and the world has moved on. Alas.
