Nestled right beside the Murrundini River, this campsite is surrounded by tall swamp gums, black wood wattles and tree ferns. This spot (site 2) is at its best from spring through to autumn (can get very damp in winter).  Site one is flat open and good all year round. Site one best for caravans, camper-trailers, site two best for tents. Both are right beside the river. There

Nestled right beside the Murrundini River, this campsite is surrounded by tall swamp gums, black wood wattles and tree ferns. This spot (site 2) is at its best from spring through to autumn (can get very damp in winter).  Site one is flat open and good all year round. Site one best for caravans, camper-trailers, site two best for tents. Both are right beside the river. There are two swimming holes, with steps for easy access (hand rails on the first one)

Enjoy a peaceful riverside camp site. Campfires are permitted, only in provided fire pits (fire wood can be supplied). A grill or hotplate for the fire is also available.

It's a short walk to the onsite toilet facilities (150m). There is potable rain water tank, single toilet block provided, and a picnic table for meals.

This property is close to wineries, scenic reserves, 4WDing, scenic waterfalls, hiking trails and fishing spots. There is abundant native wild life on site and near by (kangaroos, wallabies, echidna, heaps of wombats) and amazing and rare bird life on site.

PLEASE NOTE: Mobil very good reception for Telstra network across entire property, but Optus only from the hill top.

Well behaved pets (dogs) allowed with discussion. Young or exuberant dogs/puppies would recommend site one, as you can close the gate and keep them close, and not have to worry about them wandering too far. PLEASE clean up after your dog. As Only two of the three camp sites are leased at a time,  you can enjoy plenty of space and privacy (over 1km of river frontage, 32 acres in total). 

No shooting allowed. No trail bikes to be used onsite (respect other campers and neighbors).

The original home stead (built in 1876) burnt down in the 2009 black Saturday fires. There still remains many 150+ year old elms and other European trees near the toilet block, which are delightful in autumn. Mid winter there are hundreds of yellow daffodils & white  jonquils. We have some fantastic views from the hill up and down the Murundindi Valley, especially at sunset. We're located only a few short km's from Wilhelmina Falls and Murundindi Scenic Reserve, you get the best part of the river, without the crowds. We are a short drive from Melbourne, and easy access to the townships of Yea and Yarra Glen for supplies if you need them.

Please note due to recent heavy rains; site two is currently limited to 4wd access, till things dry out. Please message me before booking site two

Great location alongside Murrundindi river. Peaceful setting alive with bird life. Fish did evade me. Quiet seclusion very relaxing.

Beautiful spot, not too far out of Melbourne but so private and peaceful. Nice clean toilet not far from campsite. Michael was very friendly and great with communication. Would definitely come back

We had an excellent time here. Host, Michael is very welcoming and we felt at home. Bella, our 9 month old GSP had an absolute ball on her first camping trip.
Highly recommend - the best hipcamp we have stayed at so far.
Look forward to visiting again! Thanks for a great weekend Michael.

This was our first camping trip with our family and this place was perfect! Michael was such an amazing host and I can’t give him enough praise. Although we weren’t able to meet him, he ensured we knew everything about the site, places to walk and things to do. The site was very clean, the river right at our feet and the views spectacular. We definitely will be back again. Thank you Michael.
