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

Mt Kosciuszko lookout - Vic 180

Free camp at Mt Kosciuszko Lookout, Victoria

I was so excited the last time we visited Mt Kosciuszko Lookout (Victorian site 180 in Camps 11) – we spotted the peak itself! Initially I thought the white was part of the clouds – until I realised I was looking at Australia’s highest mountain. When you consider you walk up the mountain from Thredbo in NSW, it is pretty amazing you can spot it all the way from Victoria. The last time we drove through, it was hiding behind the clouds. We were also thrilled to have made it to Victoria at all – thankfully before the lockdowns. This parking area

Time to support Mallacoota, Victoria

Mallacoota Victoria – Image by Michelle Thorn Like other towns ravaged by bushfires, Mallacoota in Victoria has done it tough. The fires in East Gippsland were followed by a COVID lockdown – a double blow for business in this tourism town.   Michelle Thorn visited Mallacoota Foreshore Holiday Park, and said, “Mallacoota is one of those places where there is so much to do and see that five days wasn’t nearly enough time. The park itself is amazing, clean and tidy facilities, sites across from the water where you can moor your boat are super handy and the whole park has
