Vline Accessible campsites in Victoria

Postby Mike T » Mon Oct 17, 2011 8:48 pm

Camping dilemma:
I'm a youngun who loves camping, but I don't have my P's.
Are there any campsites in Victoria that are accessible by Vline, but are not full of obnoxious bogans over the summer holidays? I'm looking for somewhere relatively quiet and secluded, but also accessible by Vline bus. Sounds a little far-fetched, but if anyone has any suggestions, I'd really appreciate it if you shared them!

Ideally freecamping. I'm yet to find a caravan park that was either peaceful or secluded.

Thanks Titch :D

If you come out west (I'm in Stawell next to the Grampians)
Vline Train goes to Ararat, Bus comes through Stawell and beyond
I would be happy to drop you off to a camp site, there are plenty to choose from out here.
Grampians National Park, Lake Lonsdale, Green Hill Lake, Mt Buangor State Park, Mt Langi Ghiran State Park
Mt Cole State Forest, Pyrenees ranges, Mt Arapiles - tooran and that's just off the top of my head.
Really depends on what kind of camp site you are after, Lakes are nice and full out here after all the rain earlier in the year.
Some national parks have long waiting lists for camping reservations.
