Wee Jasper boasts stunning camping spots beside the Murrumbidgee River, underground caves and historical homesteads. A ‘must visit’ for lovers of outdoors and history buffs.

Thought to be named after tiny green gemstones found by an early Scots resident which he called ‘Wee Jaspers’, this natural wonderland is ideal for exploring, camping, picnicking, bird-watching, and outdoor enjoyment.

When visiting Wee Jasper, it’s not hard to imagine the prehistoric days when megafauna such as giant kangaroos and wombat-like creatures roamed the hills. Fossil viewing abounds as part of specialist tours with expert guides. Carey’s Cave offers one of Australia’s most memorable natural experiences while properly equipped adventurers can discover a myriad of other wild limestone cave systems.

Wee Jasper is a camping and RV paradise with five beautiful camping reserves and many spectacular places to stop. Bushwalking along the river or on parts of the Hume and Hovell Walking Track from the Fitzpatrick Trackhead allows immersion in nature and encounters with locals – some 56 species of birds and many readily-spotted mammals and reptiles.

Another accommodation option includes Wee Jasper Station. These traditional Shearers' Quarters are the perfect spot for a group of up to 34 people to stay in bunk-style accommodation.
