Enfield State Park



This park is an important haven for wildlife, but during the Gold Rushes the peaceful
landscape was dominated by tents and diggers from around the world. The digger’s lifestyles are often reflected in local place names like Misery Creek and Surface Point. Surface Point was a Chinese settlement in the 1860s, and there are still relics to be found there, including round mine shafts and a memorial.

Visit the park in spring and be rewarded by colourful and unusual wildflowers.

Things to Do
Fossicking at Enfield - Nearly half of the park is available for fossicking or panning for gold along Misery Creek.

Mountain bike riding - Many bike tracks are available throughout the park for use.

Horse riding - Horses can be ridden on formed vehicle tracks open for public use but must not be taken on walking tracks. There are many tracks available and Enfield State Park and the surrounding State forest are an attractive setting for horse riding.

Scenic drives - Throughout the park a network of all weather unsealed access roads and four wheel drive tracks are available for visitors to explore the sights of the park.

Walking - The park features a large circuit walking track with side tracks to Enfield and Bald Hills. Walkers with some navigational experience will enjoy tracks that go through a variety of bush types and terrain. The Searle’s Loop Walk from the Enfield Township Picnic area passes through mining relics and different vegetation and will take around 40 minutes to complete at an easy pace. Warning: There are deep mine shafts in the area - avoid walking off track.

Enfield Picnic Area - Picnic table and toilets are available at Enfield township.

Long Gully Picnic Ground - Picnic area

Surface Point Picnic Ground - This is a great spot to enjoy a picnic. Camping is allowed and the campground is close to Mount Misery Creek with basic facilities only. Bush camping is permitted in other areas of the park.
