Changes to Murray River FREE camping near Yarrawonga, Victoria

Forges Beach – Victoria Vic Parks have recently made some big changes to the camping options along the Murray River, consolidating many state forest, wildlife reserves, conservation areas and town commons under the umbrella of the National Parks system. This has cleared up a lot of confusion about who controls what, where to book and where to find the info you need to plan your trip. With roughly 2000km of river frontage in Victoria, you can only imagine the scale of the task placed upon Parks to achieve this outcome and we thank them for their hard work. This process

High country free camp: Victoria Falls, Victoria

If you are looking for a pretty waterfall, then check out some of our camps beside waterfalls. Victoria Falls Campground is known more as a historical area rather than a waterfall – it was the site of Victoria’s first hydro electricity scheme. The history is interesting, but infrastructure was removed – just some concrete remains. Instead, park up and enjoy the serenity! This camp area has enough going for it, to visit in its own right. It has a beautiful little creek (see our video below) and bridge with picnic area, barbeques and toilet alongside.  Plus you can bring your pets,

JB Plain Hut Campground, Dinner Plain by CAMPS AUSTRALIA WIDE
Camping

Free camp at JB Plain Hut in the Victorian High Country

JB Plain Hut is the first hut you will come across from Dinner Plain, only 1.8 km towards Hotham Alpine Village in Victoria High Country. Surprisingly, there were several RVs at the carpark entrance on the Great Alpine Road – and at least 4 tents around the hut and my favourite snow gums. One skier set up right on the edge of the plain. A beautiful spot! It is a walk-in site for tent camping – with a drop toilet. The two room hut is pretty rustic inside and out – there is a fireplace, the hut is only for
