Licola Wilderness Village is an amazing not-for-profit camp and the gateway to the Alpine National Park. Every type of group catered for, large and small, from schools and church groups to sporting clubs, driving clubs and families who just want the perfect getaway.

Every year Licola Wilderness Village seek to 'wow' returning visitors and believe they have again this past year and will again in the years to come.

Whether you want activities or just accommodation there is something for everyone.

There is new accessible accommodation and activities for the aged and mobility impaired, as well as a huge range of free activities for weekend groups from low level climbing, mini golf, trampolines, swimming pool, giant games and puzzles, to disc or frisbee golf.

If you want something even bigger, you can hire one of the qualified activity staff to take you on the 18 metre giant swing, or the 150 metre flying fox, high ropes, climbing tower, archery or canoes.

Open seven days a week, Licola Wilderness Village is 250 kilometres east of Melbourne on the banks of the Macalister River, a great spot for fishing. A once thriving saw milling town Licola is now the only privately owned town in Victoria and the only one not on mains power. Not only does the town generate its own power, but Licola also pumps and treats its water and is responsible for waste management.

Licola Wilderness Village has its own chapel and 'bush' weddings are becoming an increasingly popular alternative. The town's only shop, the general store, sells fuel, groceries, maps and many other items to satisfy a traveller's needs.
