Situated at the base of the Victoria Range beside a creek, pitch your tent or bring your caravan to Buandik Campground.

This is a great place to base yourself and explore the Victoria Range and Victoria Valley areas by four wheel drive. Located in one of the more remote areas of the park, this campground offers tranquility amongst an open eucalypt forest setting.

There are 13 sites suitable for tent-based camping with adjacent vehicle parking, and four drive-in sites suitable for camper trailers, caravans and campervans. Each site at Buandik Campground accommodates a maximum of six people. Sites are unpowered and there are non-flush toilets.

Don't miss the chance to walk up Billimina Creek to Buandik (Jadawadjali) Falls. From there you can continue up the hill to Billimina Shelter. Once a meeting place for the Jadawadjali people, it's covered with over 2,500 motifs made of red ochre bar strokes.

Not far away, another walk takes in the Aboriginal rock art shelter of Manja. For more information on local Aboriginal culture, visit Brambuk the National Park and Cultural Centre in Halls Gap.

    Grampians National Park – Planned Burns Program

    Forest Fire Management Victoria (FFMVic) have now completed the Autumn Planned Burns Program in Grampians (Gariwerd) National Park and surrounding reserves. Patrols and some road closure remain in place.
     
    Two additional planned burns have been scheduled for Winter (June/July 2024).
     
    These planned burns have been nominated and approved as part of the FFMVic three-year Joint Fuel Management Program for the Wimmera Fire District. Each burn has been designated to a year and season, though this may change depending on burn objectives and seasonal conditions. You can view the three-year plan at https://www.ffm.vic.gov.au/bushfire-fuel-and-risk-management/joint-fuel-management-program
     
    The map attached, outlines the burns programmed for this year. Detailing the exact date and time of ignition can be difficult and the final decision to proceed may only be made on the day of the burn - once resources, weather conditions and local fuel moisture levels are deemed suitable. Once a burn is scheduled for ignition, FFMVIC will send out regular notifications.
     
    Some of the planned burns may involve the temporary closure of visitor sites, roads and campgrounds within Grampians Gariwerd National Park and other reserves. This may include detours or closures of hike in campgrounds along the Grampians Peaks Trail, and other vehicle-based campgrounds.
    ·      Closures will be enforced for the duration of ignition and may remain in place for some days.  Visitor sites will re-open once the burn is declared safe.
    ·      We recommend that you seek information and stay informed about the status of the planned burns scheduled near you.
