The area of Buckland and Buckland valley have a series of gold-mining settlements situated along the Buckland river that span over 30km. The Buckland River was named after Sir Thomas Buckland who was a famous pastoralist in the area. Thomas owned a pastoral station located at the headwaters of the Ovens river in 1845.
Gold was first discovered in Buckland Valley in 1853 and it was intensely worked a decade later. Many Chinese miners flocked to the area outnumbering the Europeans by three to one.

The Buckland River Campgrounds are around 20 meters above the river itself. The Campground has beautifully maintained fresh grass and the area is littered with Wattles and Mountain Gum. A great place to take the entire family with something on offer to keep everyone entertained.
The campground has a number of wood fired bbq's and longdrop toilets on offer.
The Buckland river offers some excellent fishing for the keen anglers. There are no fees associated with camping here and is a case of first in best dressed.
