Hi all

Needing to visit Shepparton for 3-4 days later this month. We normally stay with family but other family have beaten us to the spare beds. Would happily stay in a motel but with the price of diesel (driving from Blue Mtns) and keeping a family of 5 fed and watered on the road and entertained while in Shepp, I'm considering throwing the tent up at a local caravan park.

Any recommendations? Our two youngest kids are 3 and 5 so looking for a park that is a genuine tourist park rather than one full of (how do I say this nicely..?) "undesirables".. Not trying to sound snobbish, just want it to be a happy experience to remember!

Looking forwrad to your comments!
Cheers and beers
Rich

We too have relatives who live in that God forsaken dung hole.

It really is the arse hole of the earth.

Perhaps try staying nearby on the banks of the Murray, maybe the Barmah State Forrest, just 15 minutes away. Free camping to offset the fuel cost.

Plenty of other spots along the Murray, The Boomanoomana State Park just out of Mulwala is sensational but is about 45 minutes to the Freckle.

Sorry, forget the Barmah, it is near Echuca, not Shepp.

However, well worth the drive.

Thanks Jim - I didn't think the place was that bad! Some of my family moved there for work reasons, then the parents followed suit to be closer to the grandkids, then more family moved to be closer to everybody and to get out of Sydney mortgages. It would be nice if there were a few hills around the place though hey?

We'll prob stay at the park on the lake - we'll be spending most of the waking hours at the clan's houses and will only leave for the tent when its tie for everyone to get horizontal, so close to town is good, but I haven't even raised this subject with the boss yet so she may prefer to be out of town..

Richard,
I've just returned this morning from a week at the Victoria Lake Holiday Park. The camping area for tents is wide open, quite secluded from the caravans and backs onto the Goulburn River. Not many campers there at the moment so there'd be heaps of room for your kids. The lake is dry due to the drought.

Park occupants were mostly older people, no undesirables and very friendly. You could even have a camp fire in the tent area - a couple of people did. Good location in relation to the town - the passenger train will wake you up at 7am when it passes by (kids will enjoy that).

Regards,
Peter
