Jackass Fern Gully Camp area


Gday...

I didn't stay here - only visited and moved on.

CAMPS 8 VIC site 519 - GPS 38 04 29 S 141 25 32 E

CAMPS 9 VIC site 507 - GPS 38 04 29 S 141 25 32 E

This camp is a fair way off any highway, along sealed and well-formed dirt roads - so not 'convenient' for an overnight only stop.

However, not real easy to find but those with a GPS assistant will probably have no problems.

I am glad I checked it out before taking my big van in as, while the 20-odd Km of roads (sealed for about 4Km) upto the entrance track are quite good (but may be slippery in wet conditions) it was the last little track,150metres, into the camp off T&W Road that I felt would not fit my van. A trifle narrow and tight turns for my big van ... I didn't try it ... just unhitched the van.

I drove into the camp and checked it out for possible future use. The camp area is divided into caravan and tent sites - somewhat informally. The camp is fairly sloping and not much flat area. Nicely treed, grassy, but solar panels may have to work hard to get enough sunlight.

No water (although there is a tank at the toilet which may have water after rain), no grey water restrictions, fireplaces, picnic tables, no Telstra Internet/mobile coverage, no time limit.

There is a walk to a fern gully - not astounding but OK.

Here are some pics for your interest.

You probably should have mentioned that it's in a National Park so no pets allowed. Also there is a time limit that you can camp for all Victorian National Parks. Try staying there for an extended period & a Ranger will politely ask you to move on.
