Big River Bridge - Alpine National Park

National Park - Victoria


The Alpine National Park stretches from central Gippsland all the way to the New South Wales border where it adjoins Kosciuszko National Park. Within the park are some of Australia’s most stunning alpine landscapes, including mountain peaks, escarpments and grassy high plains.  

There are plenty of opportunities for bushwalking, from hikes to plunging waterfalls or the summits of Victoria’s highest peaks – Mount Feathertop, Mount Bogong and Mount Howitt – to the network of tracks among the Snow Gums, summer wildflowers and historic mountain huts of the Bogong High Plains.  Other activities include cross-country skiing (with downhill skiing at adjoining resorts), camping, canoeing, cycling, four-wheel driving and horse riding in the warmer seasons. 

The Alpine National Park offers some of the most authentic and scenic bush camping opportunities in Victoria. Camping in the park is suited to experienced hikers and campers that are self sufficient. Dispersed camping is permitted throughout much of the park. There are some camping areas that include facilities such as pit toilets, picnic tables and fireplaces. Bookings for camping are not required. This is a large grassy open area in a circular layout that has plenty of shade from the surrounding trees. It is suitable for any size rig. It is a popular entry point for launching your canoes. Fishing is really good here as well.

This Rest Area is a great spot for all size rigs. It is flat with plenty of grass areas to park. You can camp next to the Big River (yes that is it’s real name) and we watched people catching Brown Trout. No time limit but the only facility is a clean drop toilet. Very easy to stay a few days.
