Lloyd Knob Camp - Briagolong State Forest

Free Camping - Victoria


Two and a half hours drive from Melbourne, north of the town of Briagolong on the southern fall of the Great Dividing Range, lies the Briagolong State Forest. These forests have a rich history. The original inhabitants of the area were the Briakoloong people who utilised the vast forest resources for canoes, shelter, food, clothing and tool making. The early European explorers relied heavily on Koori guides during the exploration that was responsible for the opening up of the region. In the late 1800’s, these forests teemed with prospectors searching for that ever elusive gold to bring them instant wealth. These days, the forests provides for a variety of activities including picnicking, camping, walking, swimming, sightseeing, and car touring.

Note: The Freestone Creek Road is a narrow 2WD gravel road and is not suitable for caravans; other tracks are best attempted with 4WD vehicles
