Try Horseyard Flat, great spot a few km over the Moroka Bridge. From there there is a great walk to the falls, though probably not much water at the moment. There is also a spot on the river near the bridge on the left. Not supposed to camp in the hut so try these spots

Hi Camperholic, as Ken said you can't camp at Moroka Hut anymore. The main access track from the eastern side has a locked gate at the hut paddock. I was up there on the long weekend and Racecourse Creek is dry but the Moroka River is just flowing. In addition to the campsites mentioned by Ken you could go further east to Dairy Farm Flat but the creek there is probably dry too. I would camp downstream from the bridge on the Moroka as there is plenty of space and most of the trail bikes/loud music brigade seem to go to Horseyard Flat.

Thanks for that guys, I've never been in that area before and I'm just looking for another camp spot. I usually camp over crooked river/dargo area and wondering what the river is like for fishing,canoes etc. Is it as big as the Wonnangatta R.? and what are the tracks like getting in there?

G'day again, the Moroka is just a creek really up around the hut/Horseyard Flat area. There are some small trout in it but it is too small to canoe on. Access is 2WD from Licola via the Bennison road, Tamboritha Saddle, Arbuckle Junction and Surveyors Creek. 2WD is also possible from Briagolong via Marathon Road with the section from the gate over Bleak Hill to the Castle Hill road the only rough bit.

Also good camping at Doolans Plain (off the Moroka Rd). Worth the walk from the end of that road to Neilsen's Crag (The Watchtower) for fabulous views, esp to Snowy Bluff.

Thanks again fellas, thats great, I won't bother taking the canoe in for that trip.
Maybe I'll wait till we've had some rain, if the creeks are that dry, and would like to see the falls at their best. Wife likes casting for a rainbow too so must keep her happy. Cheers!
