Top 5 Campsites in Victoria
We've tried and tested a lot of places. Some have been successful, others haven't. Here is a brief summary of sites we have enjoyed this year.
With the help from the whole team, we have come up with a list of places we absolutely love and you can access from a 2wd (we know a lot of you have 4x4, but we need to make it fair for everyone).
1. High Country, Dargo. Black Snake Creek Hut camp grounds. Last time we went, the hut was out of use though. Still, it's a really nice spot, right on the river. Apparently there is great fishing there, however we didn't catch a thing over two nights.
This site is close enough to town, you can sneak up to the pub for a meal.
2. 90 Mile Beach- We find that's not as busy during the peak seasons (summer and hot days). We like to head up around Shoreline Drive Camping area. It's free, close to the beach and has toilets in most places. Best of all for us, dogs are allowed at sites 1-6 at Shoreline.
3. Yarrawonga- If the Murray is more your fancy (water sports, summer, crowds) then there are some great spots just west of Yarrawonga. Head down the Murray Valley Hwy toward Echuca and a LOT of the roads on the right have some GREAT campsites.
4. Cathedral Ranges- It's paid camping (you need to book in advance through Parks), however the spots have a fair amount of distance between them. There is a small river there, we've seen some playtapus playing around in summer!
5. Noojee- Either at The Poplars or at Torongo Falls campsite. The campgrounds are fairly large and have walking tracks and waterfalls quite close. These sites suit everyone really.
