Postby New_to_this » Mon Oct 06, 2008 3:31 pm

Has anyone been here.

From what i can find, this area is large and covers many areas.
Basically there are many different free areas to camp.
So we are planning on just driving up and looking around and seeing what we can find.

This is one option another place i have look at is Dargo. Where there are some more free camping areas.

Here is a link to a document i found that was good http://svc065.wic466d.server-web.com/images/latrobe/camping.pdf

So yeah if anyone has been to any of these areas or similar can you let me know what you thought.

Gippsland Lakes are great!
But more for Boating, Bush camping wise You have some spots along South parts of Mcleannan Strait and the western side of Lake Victoria. There are various Caravan/camping spots all over place

I you have a boat there some spot's on the Bunga arm.

There about 3 or 4 free sites scattered around that area. No facilities. Good if you have a tinnie as there's plenty of Bream in the area. Further South, away from the lakes You have the 90 mile Beach. From Sea Spray to Paradise Beach there is plenty of Free camping tucked beind the dunes. Some spots have Drop toilets and that about a far as it goes facility wise. These spots are great in the summer! Bring a surf rod and hang on the beach.
If you have kids watch them in the surf incase there's rip.
If your comming from Melbourne you turn off at Rosedale it's about a 3 and a half hour drive from the CBD depending on the traffic.

Good luck.

Yeah i am thinking of staying away from the beaches for that reason.
But i did like the idea that there are plenty of free campsites and if we drive for long enough we should be able to find something.
No tinny just a car. So we will be stuck with the rest of the world

Take insect repellent!
Gippsland lakes are a killer for sandflies. But a great spot.

Dargo is beautiful country - probably one of my favourite spots in victoria - its a town lost in time.

Ok so i think this might be the way we go for Xmas camping.
We are in trafalgar so only what 2hrs ish from lakes entrance.
So say we take a whole day to drive and stop and check out
a few of the different places. Then if we really cant find
anywhere we like (enough to stay the whole week).
We head for the hills the next day.

Well its sort of a plan.

Anybody got any secret spots along here Or a favourit.
I am very excitided now i have a general plan.
Now to put together some more details
