Pitch a tent and set up camp under canopies of stars, dwarfed by native trees. Spend your nights around the campfire, delighting in the calls of resident birds and the odd visit from a wandering wombat.
Tap into an immense range of national parks and reserves to call home. Take your pick from sites set in dramatic coastal reserves, at the river's edge or against a backdrop of granite cliffs and sandstone ranges.
Covering all bases
Seasoned wild bush campers and creature-comfort seekers will find suitable options at Victoria's national reserves and holiday parks. Experience camping luxury in the comfortable surrounds of a holiday park or at a serviced campground, complete with flush toilets, barbecues and hot showers.
Keep it simple at a standard campground where just the basics − fireplaces, non-flush toilets and a water supply − are covered. For the truly adventurous, there's always the option to BYO everything and rough it in the secluded bush.
