Thurra River camping area
The large camping area at Thurra River is in prime position for excursions to the nearby historic Point Hicks Light Station, whose tower (complete with Hitchcockian spiral staircase) was finished in 1890; you can stay in the lightkeepers’ cottages. Croajingolong’s rough gravel roads are mostly not conducive to towing in, but small vans will make it to Thurra River along Cape Everard Rd, which runs off Tamboon Rd. The sheltered campsites here are dispersed along the peaceful Thurra River, a perfect place for a swim, kayak or canoe. There is no tap water, so you need to bring your own.
How to book: bookings for Mueller Inlet and Thurra River camping areas necessary late Dec–Jan and Easter, through the Point Hicks Light Station office (03) 5158 4268; bookings for Peachtree Creek, Shipwreck Creek and Wingan Inlet camping areas by ballot at Christmas and Easter; Parks Victoria Mallacoota (03) 5161 9500, 13 1963
This campsite is located in Croajingolong National Park
Beautifully remote Croajingolong National Park stretches for 100 km along Victoria’s untamed south-eastern coastline. The only disturbance at the beaches here is the tide, and the glassy inlets provide superb canoeing. Walkers will enjoy seeing the waterbirds that thrive in the wetlands and the wildlife that roams in the soaring forests. You can reach the park from Mallacoota or via a number of tracks leading south of the Princes Hwy; check conditions after heavy rain.
