Billy Goat Bend camping area
Billy Goat Bend has a spectacular curving cliff as a backdrop, and the small rapids here are a great place to test the durability of your air mattress. If you’re planning on canoeing to this spot, note that the best time for a long-distance paddle is July–Dec. Those with vehicles can get here via Billy Goat Bend Rd direct from the Bairnsdale–Dargo Rd.

This campsite is located in Mitchell River National Park
Mitchell River National Park is a favourite of canoeists and rafters for its centrepiece network of rocky gorges, complete with rapids. If you’re a hiker who wants to stride out for a few days, hop onto the long track that follows the Mitchell River through the park’s densely forested terrain. You can also confront an ancient Aboriginal story at the Den of Nargun. This national park is 25 km north-west of Bairnsdale via the Bairnsdale–Dargo Rd. Check with Parks Victoria regarding the current status of track closures within the park, often due to weather damage or upgrades.
