Bridgewater Caravan Park Victoria
The Bridgewater Caravan Park which is situated approximately half way between Bendigo and Wedderburn in Victoria, has finally reopened after being devastated by flood waters in 2011.
The reconstruction process has been a multi million dollar project, so visitors to the area can now enjoy brand new cutting edge facilities to make their caravanning trip something special.
The Victorian Government is also going to be kicking in a further $200,000 to upgrade the well patronised boat ramp and adjacent car park in the vicinity.
Bridgwater is a popular location in summer with water skiing being one of the main attractions. But there is lots of other attractions to enjoy including: gold fossicking, fresh farm produce, crafts, wineries, fishing, natural forests, and bird life.
Bridgewater is famous for the 'Hand of Faith' gold nugget (see picture below) that was discovered in the region, and the area is still very popular with gold hunters today.
Melville Caves are also nearby and are a popular spot for people visiting the area looking for a great opportunity to enjoy abseiling, rock climbing and bush walking.
Bridgewater lies on the Calder Highway 37 minutes from Bendigo and 27 minutes from Wedderburn in the middle of the wheat farming belt.
A number of events are held throughout the year including: The Bridgewater Triathlon, June Golf Tournament, Ladies Water Wheel Sheild, and the Wool, Wheat and Wine Festival. More details on Bridgewater on Loddon events.
Hats off to the caravan park owners at Bridgewater Vic, who were affected by these terrible floods in January 2011, our heart goes out to them with the massive clean up they had to endure.
