Camping - Cathedral Reserve.

This is an unofficial camping area. There is water and toilets, but no showers. There are barbecues, the only ones available in the villages, but wood is not supplied. Shelter sheds and picnic tables and seats are located there. It is the end point of the Village Walk, which starts from Breenhold. Here is more info about Cathedral Reserve.

Users are reminded to securely lock up any valuables during their stay.

Please only use the BBQ facilities at Cathedral Reserve. Lighting a BBQ at other places throughout the village presents a potential fire hazard.

Dogs are allowed in the Mt Wilson Village and at Cathedral Reserve, however dogs are not allowed in the National Park adjacent to the reserve and village. So walks around the village are ok providing they are not into the National Park.

A short walk (10 minutes) through the Cathedral of Ferns can be found nearby.

Picking your own walnuts and chestnuts is a fun activity for the family or just the opportunity to find fresh high quality nuts for eating or cooking. There are two seasons for walnuts. The green walnut season is in December and some properties are open, so you can use this special product for your own favourite family recipes. During the main season in autumn at both Mt Irvine and Mt Wilson, several properties open during March and April each year for mature ripe walnuts and chestnuts and they invite people to visit and pick their own nuts.

So, come and pick your own walnuts and chestnuts. There are established nut orchards with large, good quality, fresh chestnuts and walnuts. Chestnuts need gloves to pick up the spiky shells which have fallen to the ground, and break them open to get the chestnuts. Walnuts are just picked from the ground.

Drive around the villages and look for signs outside properties where you can pick nuts. Some properties are regulars each season and other properties advertise only when they have nuts available for picking.

The regular properties open each season are in the table below. It is a good idea to call first and check when they are open.
