Brooks River Reserve

To reach this compact camping area, head north-west out of historic Alexandra township on the Maroondah Hwy and turn west on Swanns La, which leads down to the banks of the Goulburn River. There are fireplaces here but you’ll need to lug in your own firewood. The fishing gets competitive when the trout season begins.

Devils Cove

Devils Cove is one of several scenic camping spots at Collers Bay, in what’s known as the Fraser Camping Area; sites here can be booked on-line via the Parks Victoria website. Take the gentle 3.5 km walk around the bay to the Lakeside camping area. East of Devils Cove is the Merlo Lookout, named after an old homestead now submerged in the lake’s waters, which makes a dramatic reappearance when water levels are low.

Candlebark is located in the popular Fraser Camping Area, on the western edge of Coller Bay and accessed via UT Creek Rd. Each of its 70 or so campsites should be booked in advance through the Parks Victoria website. To find out about the national park’s ecology and history, take the self-guided Candlebark Gully Nature Trail. While walking, you may spot some of the eastern grey kangaroos that roam through the local woodlands.

The boat ramp at the Lakeside camping area gets a workout during holiday periods, when sundry anglers, waterskiers and sightseers take to the water. This is one of the popular Fraser Camping Area destinations on the edge of Coller Bay, and sites have to be booked in advance through Parks Victoria’s on-line booking service. Lakeside is 12 km north-east of Alexandra via UT Creek Rd.

Mountaineer Creek

Mountaineer Creek is up in the northern section of Lake Eildon National Park, where you can really get away from it all. The camping area is situated on peaceful Stone Bay and can only be accessed by boat or on foot. Whether you’re contemplating canoeing here across the lake or hiking in along a network of bushy tracks, first talk to the ranger about access and conditions.

There are decent facilities in the Molesworth camping ground, including a laundry, showers and barbecues. This riverside reserve is signposted north off the highway to the west of the bridge over the Goulburn River. You’ll need to bring your own drinking water and a supply of firewood, which will be easy enough to arrange in town.

Address: 4352 Goulburn Valley Hwy, Molesworth VIC 3718, Australia

Coopers Point

A boat trip is your only option for getting out to Coopers Point on the eastern shoreline of Lake Eildon, just to the west of Mt Enterprise. Before paddling or motoring out of Coller Bay, check with the national park ranger as to the best route and what to expect when you reach Coopers Point. Bring your own drinking water with you.

Kendalls A camping area

This is one of a pair of camping areas just off Rubicon Rd, to the north of the power station. Directly east of here are Snobs Falls, a fetching 100 m cascade over tumbledown rocks. Unfortunately, there’s no dependable route across the forest to the falls; you’ll need to backtrack to the Taggerty–Thornton Rd, swing onto the Goulburn Valley Hwy, then take Snobs Creek Rd and follow it for 7 km from the turn-off.

Neds Gully

Neds Gully is off Little River Rd at the northern entrance to the park; it’s a 50 m walk from the carpark to the campsites via a swingbridge. An easy walk leads from Neds Gully to Cooks Mill along Little River. If you’re after something a bit more challenging, follow another trail to Ned’s Saddle, from where you can take the steep, difficult track heading west to Cathedral Peak.
