There's a very nice little spot about 1 Km before the Selwyn/Tee Tree turn-off. There is a small blue sign near the entry. It's on a bend with great access to the water with a sandy beach. If you want a larger area keep going south to Beveridges and there's a large cleared area at the beginning of the National Park. Watch out for log trucks on your way up. About 40 kms from Porpunkah to these areas.

Cheers

Plenty of good spots up there, you can travel a long way to the end ,over 40kms or thereabouts. There is rain falling as well as I write this and there is always water. Just watch for heavy rainfall if crossing, it can be deep in spots. As for the fish they are fussy buggers and will take only what they're interested in. Good fun flyfishing up there.

As previously stated there are numerous camping spots in the Buckland Valley. If you drive in far enough you’ll come to open areas on your left which lead down to the river. It’s a very peaceful place outside of the tourism season.

As for fishing I’d doubt your luck.

A word of warning about the Buckland. Violent storms can hit the valley at anytime. If you don’t believe me have a look at the strand of pines on your right as you travel in. I was up there on that night and we only got by the skin of our teeth.

Regards

Kim
