VIC - Murrindindi National Park

VIC - Murrindindi National Park

Postby Tanks1966 » Mon May 19, 2008 3:11 pm

Went camping over the ANZAC day long weekend in Murrandindi National Park for the first time. Needless to say it was very wet but we all enjoyed ourselves. There were excellent toilet facilities (flush type) and camp fires were permited. All camp sites had there own private allotment if you know what I mean. Its fairly dense country with heaps of wombats and deer around. Its also a very "wet" place to be, unlike my Murray river camp locations.
I would recomend it to anyone but if your a fisherman, dont bother.
Firewood is easy to scrounge up, just follow the park rules which are basic.
A $5.00 fee per car is payable upon entry.

GypsyLady,

No amenities - there are heaps of camping areas scattered up the road but only the one near the picnic area has the flushing toilets. The rest only have pit toilets. I agree with Tanks - a great spot and really handy to where we live. It's not a national park as such, only a DSE run park so that's why it's so cheap.
When's my next holiday??

Where exactly is this place? Is there a map or PDF somewhere? Is it busy? Any walks or river? :grin:

Murrindindi Scenic Reserve is off the Melba Highway between Yea & Yarra Glen and is right on the Murrindindi River (shallow so good for kids to paddle in).

& yes it is a popular place. We went up on the weekend and found the camping areas to be pretty full, tho half of the camping areas were closed off for revegetation until November - only $5 per vehicle per night so good value.

There are a few walks in the area - one along the river from the Suspension Bridge camp ground and there is also Wilhemina Falls. There may be others but these're the only ones we've done.

Copy this link into your browser and it should take you straight to the park camping guide (via the DSE website). or, if you go to the DSE website there should be a map of the Reserve.
