Hi there. We are new to camping. We have a 4x4hilux towing cub camper off road. We live in bundoora Victoria. We are after some ideas of places within 2hour approx. drive, close to water as hubbie thinks he is a fisherman, preferably grassie camping area (would love a toilet but not essential). Free camping would b great. Can anyone give me some suggestions please. Regards Judee

Hi Judith, not a lot that close to Melb, perhaps somewhere on the Great Ocean Road, or over Lakes Entrance way, that's getting almost double the 2 hrs though . . . I can see a few coastal parks SW of Lakes Entrance too, maybe Google those for some info on camping.
Lake Eildon might be a go for some freshwater fishing, esp if hubby has a canoe / kayak to fish from.

Hi we went to Ottway national park a few years ago, found the coast very busy with no accomodation , so went inland to a little town called Forrest it has a lovely van park ,very green, lots of trees , very friendly and based ourselves there for several days, visiting the ottway fly(tree top walk) cape ottway lighthouse , spotting koalas in the trees near blanket bay , just a few of the sights had a great time
enjoy where ever you go , travel safe
cheers Judy and Laurie

Try the banks of the Murray around Tocomuwal though no toilet and will need to look for a spot.
Info centres will have local maps that will show you camping areas.
Quickest way up for you would up through Shepparton .

Pop up to Sheep yard flats, swim and fish the Howqua River. There are plenty of places in the lower High Country to play and river fishing is an art. Maybe go and see some of the cattlemen huts or even do Blue Rag.

Mansfield, Merrijig then turn right... Should be sign posted "The way to Paradise".....
