Wellington River camping areas (Heyfield region)

Camper trailer Free No dogs/pets No rubbish disposal Picnic area Ranger Toilets Vehicle-based camping Wood fireplace Fishing Horseriding Swimming Walking trails

The south-western section of the park, north of Heyfield, is crisscrossed by mountain waterways where you can go swimming and fishing. These include the Wellington River, which has 13 dispersed campsites (some with recently upgraded facilities) shaded by manna gums and peppermint trees; the sites start 10 km north of Licola down the Tamboritha Rd. Horseriders can follow a track from here to Lake Tali Karng, though the horses can’t be taken onto the lakeshore itself.

Alpine National Park is a sublime patchwork of landscapes that extend from Lake Dartmouth in the north to the Snowy Range in the south, and between Mt Buller in the west and the Murray River in the east. One of Victoria’s biggest national parks, at 646 000 ha, it hosts myriad activities for all seasons, including skiing and snowboarding, hiking, cycling and rock climbing. It also has magnificent vistas, ranging from brilliant wildflowers to spectacular summits. Note: some of the region’s roads are closed during winter.
