Budj Bim Campground
Parks Victoria respects the deep and continuing connection that Gunditjmara Traditional Owners have to Budj Bim National Park, and we recognise their ongoing role in caring for Country.
We’re proud to work with Gunditj Mirring Traditional Owners Aboriginal Corporation in the co-management of this Aboriginal cultural landscape.
The campground is suitable for tents and caravans. Sites are between rocky ridges formed by ancient lava flows, and accommodate up to six people with provision for one vehicle. Site 22 is a group site that can accommodate up to 24 campers. Facilities include flushing toilets, hot showers, shared fireplaces and picnic tables.
Budj Bim has a fascinating cultural and geological history. This is a unique and picturesque landscape. As recent as 30,000 years ago, volcanic eruptions blasted through the earth's crust pouring out thousands of tonnes of molten rock into the surrounding landscape. Volcanic features in the area include the remains of relatively recent and extensive lava flows, lava caves, scoria cones and crater lakes.
Follow the Lake Surprise Walk from the lookout and descend to walk around the crater-lake's edge. The longer Lava Canal circuit Walk reveals some amazing features including lava blisters, Tunnel Cave, Natural Bridge and a dry crater as it returns to the start offering views out into the park and down into the crater.
