My wife and I will hopefully be camping a night or two at either geehi or tom groggin at some stage just after easter. From what I have learnt through the forum search function Geehi sounds like a pretty good place to set up camp. Of course, the further away from the crowds we are the better. Can anybody suggest a camp site in these areas that might be suitable, and away from the most popular spots.
Cheers
Mick

If it's not holiday periods either should be fine. They are large areas and both are good. Geehi probably offers a little more to explore in the immediate surround with the huts.

The other alternative is to cross the Murray at Tom Groggin and turn either right and go to the Doggers Hut or left up the Davies Plain Track for a short distance to the Buckwong Ck Camping area. Both are more secluded than either of the others you mention.

The Murray crossing at Tom Groggin didn't even wet the side steps a few weeks ago.

I'll be there ANZAC Day weekend. Might see you round.

"Davies Plain Track for a short distance to the Buckwong Ck Camping area"

Yup - one of our favourite spots to camp. Two areas - an upper and lower divided by the road. Plenty of room and water close by.

Buckwong Ck is pleasant, but no toilet there.

Camping on the Vic side of Tom Groggin is nowhere near as good as the NSW side.

Geehi valley is lovely. If the area by the Alpine way is too crowded, go past the Geehi hut, ford the Swampy Plains river, and try further along. Some beaut campsites there near some of the other huts (some with facilities).

You might see a white Jackaroo towing a Campomatic in that region around then - say g'day.

A new sched planned? What time slot?

21-25 April Darian, you should be able to get me on Ch 5. I dare say I'll be on Selcal Scan most of the time, and if not I'll be sitting on Ch 2.

Geehi is one of our favourite spots to camp. Lots to explore, a great view of the mountain range from your tent door. Lots of kangas and trout in the stream. Take your fishing rod. A good place to camp during the week before the hoons arrive there for the week end!
