Choof Choof Camping Area - Tamboon State Forest

Free Camping - Victoria


Choof Choof Camping and Picnic Area is situated on a backwater of the Cann River, adjacent to Lake Furnell 20km south of the Cann River Township within the Tamboon State Forest, which is managed by the Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE).

Choof Choof Picnic and Camping Area provides an ideal base location to set up camp and then go fishing, swimming, walking, or exploring the Tamboon Inlet, one of the region’s beautiful coastal attractions, which can be reached by boat, with a boat ramp located at nearby Furnells Landing.

From Melbourne travel east to Cann River via the Princes Highway. Depart Cann River via the southward-bound Tamboon Road. Travel this sealed road for 15km, and a further 10km on the now gravel Tamboon Road. Turn right onto Choof Choof Track and after 450m you will reach the picnic and camping area.

This site is accessible to both 2WD and 4WD vehicles during dry weather, but only 4WD vehicles when wet.
