Charnwood Outdoor Education Centre
Our camp is held at the Charnwood Outdoor Education Centre in the beautiful Strathbogie Ranges, North East Victoria. There are a couple of things to highlight:
Plan to arrive in time to set up your campsite in daylight. There are a lot of animals on the road at twilight/night time and it will be much easier to navigate through the Strathbogie Ranges in daylight. Campers can arrive at the camp from Friday midday.
One of the campsites has a separate car park for vehicles. Those not requiring their car to be at their campsite will be encouraged to use this very picturesque site and assistance will be provided to ferry your gear from car to camp. Please note that there is no powered camping available.
The Strathbogie Ranges can be cold and wet in Spring, so make sure that you have adequate bedding and clothing to keep you dry and roasty toasty! Pack warm clothing (including beanies!) that you can layer on or off as required. Bunkhouses are heated but campers will need to have their 4 season sleeping bags with them! A small number of fireplaces will be provided. Cost of firewood will be provided closer to the camp.
The camp has a main building which houses a classroom, the dining room and 2 bunk dormitories. There are three other Dormitories above the main building and the accommodation ranges from a shared dorm of 14 bunk beds with shared bathroom facilities through to 2 and 3 bed ensuite rooms.
Accommodation choices are unpowered camping or bunkhouse accommodation.
When you purchase your tickets you will need to choose your accommodation at that time. See below for additional information regarding bunkhouses. Please note that there are only limited number of bunks available.
Toilet and shower facilities
Portable toilets are located throughout the camping areas. Campers can use the showers and toilets located in some of the bunkhouse areas. Details will be on the map provided to you at the camp.
Staying on after camp
It's possible to stay at the site after camp finishes, however you will need to arrange this with the camp managers.
Contact them via their website.
Pets are not allowed at the Charnwood Centre so you will need to arrange babysitting for the weekend! Thanks for your co-operation with this. Exceptions apply for working Assistance Animals only (not those in training).
Trinity Camp (Vans and Campers)
Archers Camp (camping only, cars are nearby in a parking zone).
