High country free camp: Victoria Falls, Victoria

Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls is a typical high country free camp – bush camping, waterside and it is pet friendly with firepits. As a bonus, it is just off the Great Alpine Road near Omeo, Victoria.

YES, there is a waterfall

If you are looking for a waterfall swim, then check out some of our camps beside waterfalls. Victoria Falls is a windy narrow drive from the campsite. We could not access it from the lookout area. Please be cautious as you approach it. 

Victoria Falls Campground is known more as a historical area – 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!


As a FREE camp, Victoria Falls 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.

Pet friendly

Plus you can bring your pets, it is located on the foothills of Mount Hotham – with tracks and trails in summer and snow at Hotham and Dinner Plain in winter! 

Victoria Falls has camping at the top on the right hand side as you drive down to the creek. Further camping areas are along the creek, past the bridge.

The free camp is located just off the Great Alpine Road, with good access when we visited, and just 22 km to Omeo (a beautiful town to check out), and 35 km to Hotham Resort. 

On a side note, the site is close to 35 million dollar Cobungra Station – established in 1851 by the Gray family. Read more about the property – and you can even check it out at their annual Easter event – Dinner Plain Polo
