Morning all, I know I'm asking the impossible but my wife and I just want to get away between Christmas and new year for a bit of recovery time. We have an offroad 17.6 Goldstream and want to find a little quiet out of the way spot by a river or anywhere actually in Victoria or southern NSW, so if anyone is willing to give up their hidden secret we promise not to tell anyone!!! Regards, Glenn n Jude

Look up Greens Lake Near Corop Vic.
There are a fair few here already however there is plenty of room for more.
It is listed in wikicamps and camps australia.
I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

Cheers Dodg.

Chambo,
There are numerous camping options in the Vic high country and your rig would be fine to get to them. A few that come to mind include Crooked River, Upper Dargo and Buckland Valley. If you google these you should be able to find the camping options and access details. There will be a good few campers around and unfortunately, unless the skies open up soon, the rivers will have precious little water in them. You will need your own drinking water but there should be enough flow for water for showers, wash up etc. Good luck

Ken

Just another vote for the Buckland valley. Never been there at xmas though, it might be crowded?

If you want real away try looking at Woods Point , accessed either by Warburton or Jamieson .
Your at the virtual start of the Goulburn River

If van is heavy approach from Jamieson as the drop down from Matlock is long and steep.
I've spent many times sitting outside the pub and smelling cooked brakes is they drive past . :)
Great camp spots either in town or about 3 K's out . Both on the river ( stream at that point )

Quite a few along the river inland from Jamieson as well .

..
Glenn / Jude,

Some good suggestions above, have heard the Murray River has had a lot of limited access in Victoria in places.

Just wanted to say, if you have an iPhone or other smart phone, get yourself the Wikicamps app.
Under $10 I'm sure (usually $7.95 or so ?) and it is awesome.
You can download the offline map, and comment / photos at home, and not even need coverage out there to access gazillions of camps Aust wide.

Cheers and enjoy your trip / break.
