Camping in Swan Hill?

Postby neksmerj » Tue Dec 23, 2008 7:41 pm

Hi Guys,

I have just joined this forum, and have had very little experience camping, well none really on my own. :hello:
My last recollection was as a child, camping in a tent at Hall's Gap, rain belting down, with dad and I digging trenches around the tent. As a little kid, almost anything is great fun.

One quickly learns not to touch the mantle on the pressure light, despite warnings. How else are you 'sposed to learn?

I'm up for it again, and think Santa is buying me a sleeping bag. Have the Swiss Army knife and propane stove, just need a tent and I'm all set.

I'm on my own, and have never been to Swan Hill, so ask, where would you recommend I stay? I'll drive up from Melbourne. Have even considered sleeping in my car, you're thoughts?

Would a couple of nights do it, and what's there to see?

Regards,

NEKS

Hello and welcome to the forum.

I was in Swan Hill in October, but stayed in a Cabin as didn't feel like tenting it through a thunderstorm.
There are around 4 Caravan Parks in Swan Hill and more in towns either side

If you are wanting to Free/Bush camp you might need this map/booklet as they
don't provide much info on the web site

or hope someone here knows a good spot.
Some national parks have long waiting lists for camping reservations.
