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.
