Burchell Trail Camping


Burchell Trail Camping

Little more than an hour's drive from Melbourne takes you to the state's richest wildflower habitat. Set in a low range of mountains dissected by rocky gullies, the unusual geology of Brisbane Ranges National Park has preserved plants that have long since vanished from the region, together with a correspondingly diverse bird population and the greatest density of koalas in Victoria.

The Burchell Trail Hike-In sites have 2 campsites at each location for up to 6 persons per site. Bookings are per campsite for up to 6 persons per site.
