Starlings Gap camping area
Starlings Gap is in the path of 2 excellent forest walking tracks, with the 9 km walk to Big Pats Picnic Area, which follows the 1933 federal tramway, arguably the highlight. In the camping area itself, take a look at the old winch and boiler, 200 m past the toilet block. From the Yarra Junction–Noojee Rd take the signposted Black Sands Rd and then Big Creek Rd to reach Starlings Gap.

This campsite is located in Yarra State Forest
The mighty mountain ash trees swaying gently in the breeze are a big drawcard for visitors to Yarra State Forest, located 75 km east of Melbourne via the Eastern Fwy. Walking trails reveal waterfalls and the majesty of the local tree line, and show the route of an old logging-industry tramline. From Yarra Junction or Warburton, drive into the forest to Powelltown.
