Macquarie Woods - Vittoria State Forest

Free Camping - New South Wales


Vittoria State Forest is located halfway between Bathurst and Orange and is home to one of the premier forest recreation sites in the state. It has both pine plantations and native forest and is home to a variety of native fauna.

This relatively unknown treasure offers picnicking and camping areas, walking tracks and a lookout with extensive views of the Macquarie Valley. Macquarie Woods is situated on the Mitchell Highway about halfway between Bathurst and Orange.

 Macquarie Woods covers an area of 600 hectares and was established in 1988 as a demonstration forest. It displays exotic conifer planted forests and has an area of native woodland which once dominated the landscape. This is made up of yellow box, Blakely’s red gum, red stringybark and apple box and other eucalypts in an expanse of native grass. 

A large picnic area situated in the middle of the Forest with a camping area and information shelter completes the site.

If you are looking for a wonderful place to camp this is it, there is an enormous camping area you could accommodate about 800 camp sites. You need to be self contained as there are no showers, but there are toilets, rubbish bins, picnic tables, fire places & a covered information board & plenty of shade. We did not stay as we were on a time limit, but we will return.

Excellent spot for self contained RV.
