Hi Everyone.
Can someone please send through some advice on what campsite in the Murrindindi region would be best for 3 or 4 families with kids to potter around for a lazy weekend.
I have noticed a number of them come up within close proximity of each other. (blackwood, the ferns, just to name a couple)
We also have a small caravan as well and would like to put a line in the water.
Thanks heaps for your help and advice.
Happy camping.
Rogo.

I don't know if you have to specifically be at Murrurundi, but I don't know where you can fish at Murrurundi.
Considered nearby Lake Glenbawn, east of Scone, I thought that may be better for kids?

Gday Mark of Tamworth
Murrindindi is a little north of Melbourne.
I remember Lake Glenbawn being built , also Lake Kepit , and also Dungowan dam . I left home in 1965 . I did visit in about year 2001 but you wouldn't call me a regular visitor.

Thanks Muzbry, I obviously didn't look at the post close enough, I didn't realise that you could have two aboriginal words so similar 1000km apart.

Your probably looking at the Murrindindi scenic reserve area Rogo , used to be a great area but Marysville fire (started or was started) near the top end of that and it had a famous suspension bridge that was burnt out.

I did put up a post about the new arrangements , which from memory are that you should book the sites now , there used to be camp sites all along an 11 km section of Murrindindi river but only a few have been rehabilitaed and some really dumb wire fencing has been put up around the sites which makes it harder to put 3-4 families together.

The suspension bridge has been rebuilt and its still a lovely walk up to the nearby falls and you can put a line in.

Its only an hour from eastern suburbs so I'd drop up and do a checkout as my checkout was a year ago.

Some of the areas closer to Rubicon like Kendall might be better for getting a few together without needing 4wd.

Thanks Archar.
Will be heading up this weekend to have a look.
Reading other forums, apparently a lot of ferals are heading there these days, making it hard to have a lazy quiet weekend.
I guess its hard to find spots like that these days anywhere. Lol.
Cheers.
