While Australia Day is not technically a long weekend .....
If you get in now before the boss realises it, book Monday
the 25th as a day off and have a nice 4 day weekend.
I just told my wife to arrange that day off if possible.
We would likely be going away regardless.
Last Australia Day Weekend we ended up at Bass Valley
Reserve in Poowong after missing out by 1 for a spot at Bear Gully.
Anything remotely near Wilsons Prom was full.
Nothing flash there, but enough room for maybe 10 - 12
Working flush toilet (assuming the rainwater tanks have water)
1 Picnic table & a vandalised fireplace
Long weekends seem to be few and far between in recent years
I'm sure there was almost 1 per month when i was a kid.
White Womans Waterhole near Won Wron is certainly worth considering
Going by the map it would be a great location, When planning my Paradise Beach trip
this was one of my fall back locations. But when researching I discovered that the
Black Friday Bushfires went through that area and therefore decided against it.
If you have better information, please let me know as it's a pretty reasonable distance for
any Melbournian to travel to and is close to Wilson's Prom, 90 Mile Beach,
Tarra Bulga National Park & other South Gippsland attractions
Next Available long weekends =
Saturday 26 (boxing day) - Monday 28th (Day in liue of Boxing day)
Might even head off Xmas day
Friday 1 (New Years Day) - Sunday 3 January
Labour Day (Vic)
Saturday 6 - Monday 8 March
Friday April 2 - Monday April 5
Will start a dedicated thread once I can work out a few potential places.
Maybe do a poll for the Victorians to see how far they are prepared to go
eg 2, 3, 4 5 hours from Melbourne.
Personally I would go 5 + hours drive for a full 3+ day weekend
but wouldn't feel like drivinh more than 2 or so for an over nighter.
The further we are all prepared to go, the greater the choices.
There is not a lot of "free" camp spots close to Melb & any that are
decent will be full on any given Long Weekend & the closer to town
the greater the chance of having W**kers turning up and ruining your weekend.
Anyway, the red wine is taking effect and I barely remember the original question
so I will leave it at this till I have a clue what I am talking about lol
