I figure if other states are going to try and organise some camping trips, why not us Victorians. :+

Any other Victorians interested? We're all relatively close to each other so far.. What suggestions for a venue? A comfy local pub or something more in theme and outdoorsy... Lysterfield Lake is (fairly) central, Emerald Lake is further from the Cranbourners but nicer.

Any other suggestions? If it's a pub we need to choose one with a playground for the kiddies I'm thinking. :)

No! Cranbourne West actually. There are plenty of new estates here. :grin:

Fonty, I thought the idea was to go camping, not to go to the pub :? :? :?

What about Wilsons Prom/ Foster area??

hehe never even thought of that. Much bigger commitment and more planning etc. But count us in. :grin:

I'd be more keen for a summer trip as well. Gives us plenty of time to prepare, book well in advance etc and then we get to swim. 8)

Well anytime from October maybe onwards. I can swim any temperature and the kids are keen as long as the water isn't icy. We all had a nice swim at St Kilda beach on Sunday. 8) I was rapt we got one last outdoor swim in for the season. :armsup

I've just joined camping.com.au so hope I'm not too late? We have 5 kids, live in East Burwood (blended family, kids live in Berwick, have them every 2nd weekend). We have a pop up campervan, and lost our tent over Easter (we think it got left behind, so spent 2 days with the 7 of us squished into my sisters tent, hubby and I in the bag area at the front!) We camped at Barmah - near Ulupna Isl last Sept, which was awesome, heaps of wildlife, weather a bit warmer than Vic coast. Over Xmas we usually 'camp' with extended family in caravan parks, but happy to consider other location with likeminded families (sounds a bit like a 'looking for love' ad!) keep me in the loop!

I'm here too! In Aspendale - not Gardens, and not beachside of the highway either (we wish!).

Hubby and I would be up for some pub sessions planning gear and trips. A playground and some other kids for 6yo DS to play with would be great too. We'll be up for some trips once we get our new rig (campervan) any time from Sept / Oct. Especially keen for bush camping with other families / couples, but not overly fussy if the camping promises to be relaxing and fun!

Anna I'm sure I can provide some other kids for you DS to play with, he can take his pick of the 4 we usually take camping out of the 6 of them.

We do bush camping mainly, DH isn't into caravan parks or things like amenities, thinks they're a luxury. :grin:

Tania, sounds like my kind of camping. It might take DH a little longer to get used to it though, because until now he has led a more luxury-filled holiday life than me (I don't think he's ever camped somewhere that didn't at least have a drop toilet).

... and here's hoping that you won't even notice the extra kid in your car on the way home with you... :armsup
