Description

Barmedman Mineral Pool is a large relaxing pool with a naturally high mineral content. It's the perfect picnic spot with BBQ facilities and free admission run by local volunteers. Barmedman is famous for the mineral pool, which originated from the flooding of the Barmedman goldmines by an underground stream in the 1880's. The pool is said to ease aches and pains due to the high mineral content. It is fed by an underground stream and is surrounded by shady grassed areas, open every summer between November and March. Camping is available at the pool with fees payble in the donation box at the pool area entry gates. Sites are suitable for tents, camper trailers, caravans, motorhomes and big rigs. Facilities include toilets, showers, picnic tables, bbq and bins. Pets are permitted. (Pets are not permitted in the fenced pool area)

Excellent spot maintained by the local community. Clean toilets and $1coin operated hot showers, big shaded grass area by the refreshingly cool mineral pool. $10/night honesty box for campers on 2 grassy paddocks. A short 5min walk to shops. Loved this spot and would definately recommend.

This is nearly a 5, it's just a bit lost in time. Such a cool place, pool is great but really dated. Campground is big, good access, green grass, clean toilets, quiet enough. 1 dollar showers, fair I thought. I'd recommend. Watch out it's slippery in the pool, I had been warned and still fell over!

Great camp spot with showers and water available. Grassed area with BBQ all maintained by volunteers. BEWARE: The mineral pool is extremely slippery. Due to lack of warning signs, I was unaware and slipped and fell whilst entering the water. Lucky I did not injure myself. Management need to place warning signs at gates as you enter. All that aside it's very refreshing.

Awesome place. Clean amenities with free cold showers or $1 hot 4min showers. Mineral pool is very relaxing and a lovely spot to cool off after your travels. Free BBQ's with a wonderful green grassed area with plenty of shade to have a picnic. Donation for pool is $1 or $10 if staying for camping. Drinking water available inside pool area, but no power avail. Stayed in smaller camp spot after pool. Definitely highly recommend.

Barmedman is where I spent the first 8 or 9 years of my life, so I wanted to go back for a swim in the beautiful, huge mineral pool. I chose the second campground for my caravan, and found it level with plenty of room. The pool is fantastic, though be careful as it can be slippery underfoot. It's a natural pool, so different conditions to a chlorinated pool. The amenities are modern and clean. There's not much else to do in this little town, but a couple of days at the pool will do you good. Thanks Barmedman.
