In the Victorian town of Rochester, some 15 minutes south of the Murray River town of Echuca, there is a new 24-hour RV Stop Over area known as ‘the Silo Stop’ and has just opened (May 2017). With the local dairy industry struggling and the farming community ‘doing it tough’, the Rochester Business Network has long argued that a free campsite would bring in the ‘Travelling RV'eers’ and put the town firmly on the radar.
Travellers can stop, enjoy the country hospitality on offer, have a coffee, a meal, a shop or whatever with a short walk back to their R/V. The Silo Stop is located in the centre of town, a couple of minutes stroll from four hotels, cafes, a supermarket, a chemist, a laundromat, a hardware store, a bakery, and clothing stores.
Rochester has a population of just over 3,000, and is famed for a wonderfully scenic walk along the Campaspe River and for being the birthplace of cycling legend, Sir Hubert Opperman.
The Silo Stop is for fully self-contained vehicles as there are no services there, although there are public toilets one block away.
Great stop. Location is very good near the centre and shops. Toilets next door. Servo across the road IGA close. Silo across the road. Bin nearby. Plenty of room. Stayed two nights. Lovely people. Seniors meals in town.
This camp is basically on blue metal and is slopey so unless you are the first one or two here and can snag the couple of level sites you will need quite high chocks.
Great central RV park. Centre of town close by, shops and pubs. Toilets next door. Silos across the road. Hard dry surface. Large area. Plenty of room. One of the good ones
With Rochester milk factory now closed the local community are promoting RV tourism. There are several painted murals and now silo art right beside the RV stop over. Stop over is beside railway line near rail station but not a busy line. Meals at hotel are fine including seniors specials. DP at caravan park is available for small fee. Plenty of shops to explore.
This overnight stop has been relocated to the North of the Northern Hwy in Ramsay St between swimming pool and the railway line. Plenty of room hard stand and flat. Easy walk across railway line to shops and hotels. Self contained only 48 hour max.
