Positioned on the site of a former timber mill, Strachans Campground (pronounced 'Strawns') is a small secluded spot to pitch a tent in the quiet and remote south-west corner of the Grampians. Camp among the gums (and an old hut) and wake to the sounds of native birds feeding on the nectar-rich trees and kangaroos grazing outside.

There are eight tent-based camping sites with adjacent vehicle parking. There are no caravan, campervan or camper trailer campsites at Strachans Campground. Sites are unpowered.

Strachans is ideally situated beside the headwaters of the Glenelg River to explore the Victoria Range and Victoria Valley, where there is fantastic four wheel driving, bushwalking and rock climbing.

Visit the nearby Chimney Pots, a set of unique rock formations that open up to panoramas of the Grampians’ rugged landscape. Or drive to Manja and Billimina rock art shelters where there are short walks to Aboriginal art.
