Hi Guys, was hoping to get a long weekend at the Italian flat area, have never been up that way before. I was hoping to find somewhere that I can light a fire, pull up a chair and read a book.
I seem to be having a bad run at the moment, every camp I pick seems to be the party capital for the duration of my stop!
Will be taking the dog, we drive a ford escape but only have tyres for bitumen.

Hoping someone out there knows the area and can help

Hi Richard,

A long weekend just about anywhere around Dargo is going to equal party capital... Italian flat will be, party central!

The last few New Years and Easters we have been around the Dargo area and provided you dont mind looking around and have a capable 4x4 vehicle you should find a nice spot just for yourself / group.

With only 2wd access;

If you want the picnic tables, drop toilet and company of a few other campers, but not party central continue on to Blacks Flat. It is only a few km further down the road from Italian Flat (road right through there is dirt but it is 2wd access right through to Colins flat. The turn off to your left just before Madigans Bridge looks like its going to be a '4x4' track but it is NOT. However it pretty much means all the Caravan's and party people stop there.)

At Blacks the river access is restricted to pretty much 2 little spots and thus the masses seem to drive in, then drive out leaving 95% of the area empty where as the other camping area's along the upper Dargo will be filled to 150% capacity.

Thanks for the replies Guys, have been talking to a friend today and he has convinced me that the Howqua river area is a better idea.
We are trying to find a place we can spend a relaxing weekend without having to travel too far. Hopefully in the future my sole trader business will have expanded enough to allow more time off. Has anyone else tried to find an apprentice recently? Its not easy!!
