Colquhoun camping area (bush camping)
While enjoying the dispersed bush camping available around the forest, campers can familiarise themselves with forest bats, tree goannas, lyrebirds and koalas. The Forest Discovery Drive takes you past such historical highlights as the enormous, century-old Stony Creek Trestle Bridge and Costicks Weir. There are toilets at the trestle bridge and the Log Crossing picnic area.

This campsite is located in Colquhoun Regional Park
What’s now known as Colquhoun Regional Park was traversed by the Indigenous Gunai people for thousands of years before Europeans built a tramway here in the early 20th century to transport granite to Lakes Entrance. Now cyclists and walkers cross the forest on the Gippsland Lakes Discovery Trail. It’s 12 km north-west of Lakes Entrance, and accessed off the Princes Hwy via Log Crossing Rd.
