History aplenty at Cumberland Mine Historic Site

Cumberland Mine Site is an area rich with mining history and great scenery. The campsite itself is a basic parking area with toilets and picnic table, but what it lacks in facilities we think it makes up for in serenity and a beautiful billabong teeming with birdlife. It is pet friendly and has big rig access.

The billabong is covered in water lilies and is frequented by black cockatoos, willy wagtails, budgies (seen drinking in the morning), whistling kites and brolgas, if you are lucky. There is a covered viewing platform and information boards.

You can read a review and see pictures on the Teeny Tiny Living Space… Huge Backyard blog.

It was an old mine site, so for your safety please observe the signs.
