Grannys Flat Camping Reserve

Free Camping - Victoria


Granny’s Flat Camping Reserve is situated in the north-east region of Victoria, near the township of Jamieson. This area is in State Forest on the Jamieson River. It is only 44km or a 40 minute drive from Mansfield, (7.5km from Jamieson), to the camping site.

This area contains forests of Broad-leaved peppermint, Candlebark, Blue Gum, Manna Gum and Stringybark species. The campsite is on the bank of the Jamieson River, which makes it great for activities such as bushwalking, fishing, riding and touring. There are many tracks that can be used, and the river is only 50m from the camping area. Swimmers must be careful of strong currents, rocks and submerged objects in the Jamieson River.

Getting There

Follow the Mount Buller Road from Mansfield towards Merrijig for 4km along sealed road. Turn right at the sign to Jamieson and travel for 35km. In Jamieson, turn left at the Jamieson-Licola Road. After 7.5km on this gravel road you will reach the Granny’s Flat Camping Reserve sign on your left. The campsite is down 1km of windy road. The track to Granny’s Flat Reserve is steep but is accessible to all vehicles. However, following heavy rains this road becomes slippery and may be temporarily inaccessible to 2WD’s.


There are two toilet blocks here. Fresh water can be obtained from the river nearby and we suggest you boil any water for drinking. There are no facilities for rubbish collection at Granny’s Flat so you must take it home when you leave and ensure the area is clean for future campers. No firewood is supplied here. Use fallen dead wood but do not remove any from standing trees or damage other vegetation. There are no built fireplaces at this site so please use a previous campfire site where possible and clean up afterwards. Make sure you clear the ground at least 3 metres around your campfire and 1.5 metres around portable gas appliances. Do not light fires on a ‘Total Fire Ban Day’. Remember to watch for overhead branches and refrain from throwing non-burnable objects into the campfire. Don’t camp directly under trees as branches can fall unexpectedly. Check overhead before pitching your tent.
