High country free camp: Victoria Falls, Victoria

Victoria Falls

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, it is located on the foothills of Mount Hotham – with tracks and trails in summer and snow at Hotham and Dinner Plain in winter! 

It is also free to camp here. There is 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 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 Cobungra Station – established in 1851 by the Gray family. The 6486-hectare alpine beef property was recently sold for $35 million at the foot of Mount Hotham, and included more than 24,000 hectares of adjacent grazing licences.
