Teddington Camping Area (Kara Kara National Park)


Teddington Camping Area (Kara Kara National Park)

The Teddington campground is the perfect vantage point to explore the rest of Kara Kara National Park, with access to the interior trails via Teddignton road. Walk, run, ride or drive the deeper trails with a fantastic range of mountain biking trails and 4x4 experiences available for all skill levels.

The Teddington campground sits on the banks of the Teddington Reservoir, nestled at the heart of Kara Kara National Park. The campsite is surrounded by rolling hills and majestic box ironbark forests. Enjoy a meander around the reservoir with an easy return loop back to the campsite.

Grazing kangaroos regularly visit the site, however take care not to feed wildlife as it can damage and endanger their health. Enjoy the best Kara Kara has to offer with free camping located in the pleasant Teddington valley. Campsites vary in size and many can accommodate large groups. Access is very good for caravans and motorhomes. There are flushing toilets and a cubicle to hang your own portable shower. Wood fired barbeques are available, however firewood collection in the park is prohibited.

Bushfire safety is a personal responsibility. For up to date information on bushfires in Victoria call the VicEmergency Hotline on 1800 226 226, download the VicEmergency app, visit www.emergency.vic.gov.au or tune into a local radio station. Check the forecast fire danger before leaving home. Consider not visiting forest or bushland on stormy days or days of high bushfire risk.

Watch out for snakes which are more active in spring, summer and autumn. If you see a snake, stand still and don’t panic. Snakes nearly always move away when they feel footstep vibrations.

This area is a heavily mined landscape. Walkers should remain on marked paths to avoid ongoing hazards, including uneven ground, dams, unstable slopes and mineshafts. Mine tailings may contain the toxic residue of arsenic, mercury, and cyanide but pose minimal risk if not disturbed. Please comply with local signage and do not climb cliffs, over or around barriers and fencing, or enter old mine workings. If you wish to safely explore mining relics away from the formed tracks, we recommend hiring an experienced guide.
