Woods Point Camping Ground

Free Camping - Victoria


What better place to spend the afternoon or camp the night but on the banks of the great Snowy River. Woods Point Camping Ground is one of the few locations that provides for camping along the Snowy River. The camping ground is situated right on the waters edge and boasts spectacular views of the river surrounded by native forests.

As the picnic area is located in State Forest, dogs and horses are permitted in this area. Horse yards are provided for day use or overnight stays. Camping facilities include picnic tables, barbeques and a toilet, but all litter must be taken away with you when you leave.

The most popular recreation activities at Woods Point are water based. Extended canoeing and rafting trips are often undertaken and are unique in their wilderness experience. Many visitors simply visit Woods Point to take in the amazing scenery, have a quiet picnic and relax on the sandy beaches of the Snowy River.  Fishing is also a popular pass time.

The most scenic route to Woods Point is to follow the Snowy River up into the forest. From the main street of Orbost turn at the Club Hotel, heading west on McLeod
Street. Once out of town McLeod Street turns into the “B” Road, which will take you through the farmland on the Snowy River flats. You will come to a cattle grid followed by a gate that you should continue over and through (please leave the gate as you found it). You are now on Garnetts Track. After going over the Wibenduck Creek you will go past the last of the private property before heading into State Forest. Follow Garnetts Track and turn left down Wood Point Track which will take you directly to the camping ground. The camping ground is accessible by 2WD but care needs to be taken on the gravel forest roads as they can be slippery in wet conditions.

Very beautiful beach. suitable for small caravans and motorhomes. some steep and narrow sections on road in.
