Oriental Claims Historic Area, Victoria
Camping

Explore the Oriental Claims Historic Area, Victoria

The Great Alpine Road in Victoria has many hidden gems and amazing camping locations. Think campfires beside creek beds or historic cattleman’s huts. We were driving on the outskirts of Omeo, south of Hotham and Dinner Plain Alpine areas, and could see in the distance red cliffs. My travel companion followed his nose and we happened upon very interesting remains of the Victorian goldrush. The Oriental Claims Historic Area is a picnic area 3 km south west of town. Dogs are allowed if on leash, but there is no camping. Turn right to the picnic area first, and read up

Beautiful Banksia Bluff Campground, Cape Conran National Park, Victoria

Banksia Bluff Campground, Cape Conran Coastal Park VIC We loved exploring Cape Conran National Park in Victoria’s East Gippsland region. Banksia Bluff is one of those rare PARKS campgrounds where dogs are allowed. In fact, there is a mixture of unpowered dog friendly and non-dog friendly campsites. Dogs must be on a lead. The popular campground has 135 sites spread out over a kilometre, set amongst mahogany gum and banksia woodland. Campfires are permitted on selected sites and must be within a fire ring. Flushing toilets and an outdoor cold shower is available. All sites have some shade and are generally large. Toilets are

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
Destinations

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
