With the help of its AU$105.6 million grant, Victoria pushes to add more campgrounds around the state, including 119 sites to open as new campsites or receive revamps.
Before the Easter holiday, the Victorian local government revealed that 13 new and 28 upgraded campgrounds are up and running, spanning from the Grampians to the Great Ocean Road, including reopened sites that were shut down due to bushfires and storms.
Seven new hike-in campgrounds will be located at the Grampians Peaks Trail, and three more campsites will be found at the Great Otway National Park.
Other new campgrounds are Flat Spur Campground at Mt Buller, Thomson Bridge Campground in Gippsland, and Stockman’s Campground in Big River State Forest.
Reopened campsites are Paddy Joy Campsite near Corryong, Cobaw Visitor Area in the Cobaw State Forest, and Werribee River and Wombat Creek Picnic Areas in the Wombat State Forest.
Revamped campgrounds featuring all-ability accessible amenities are Lake Lascelles Campground and Dimboola Caravan Park in Western Victoria. Meanwhile, Nelson Kywong Caravan Park on the Glenelg River provides all-ability accessible showers and cabins.
For reservations, you can book accommodation through the Parks Victoria website. Some state forest campgrounds do not require bookings.
The remaining 78 campgrounds still undergoing construction are set to finish around mid-2023.
Visit the Victoria government website for more information about Victoria’s new and upgraded campgrounds.
