Details

Kinglake National Park is the largest national park close to Melbourne. It has 22,360 hectares of tall forests, fern gullies and rolling hills, an extensive network of walking tracks and other facilities, and vantage points offering scenic views.

The Gums Camping Area is situated close to a meandering mountain stream and is nestled amongst tall eucalypts and ferns. This tranquil area is a popular base for relaxing or exploring the northern section of Kinglake National Park. The Gums is ideal for families and small groups, with 18 camp sites of which five are suitable for caravans up to 20ft in length (without annex). Each camp site is surrounded by vegetation providing a delightful bush setting. Camp sites are provided with shared facilities including picnic tables and fireplaces. The campground also has one free communal gas barbeque. Click here to view a map of the camping area

Camping fees apply throughout the year and all sites must be pre-booked. Fees are charged per campsite per night, and camping is only permitted on numbered sites with the necessary permit. Each campsite may be booked for a maximum of 6 people and one vehicle.

Dogs, cats and other pets are not permitted in The Gums Camping Area. Campers are advised to bring their own drinking water and to avoid the use of detergent and soap in the nearby creek. Firewood bags can usually be purchased in the winter in Kinglake

Only 65 km north of Melbourne, this 22,360 hectare park lies on the slopes of the Great Dividing Range. Scenic lookouts offer dramatic views of the Melbourne skyline, Port Phillip Bay, the Yarra Valley and across to the You Yangs.

Directions

The Gums Camping Area is 10km north of the Kinglake township on the Glenburn/Eucalyptus Road (some maps show only Glenburn Road while others show both names - Eucalyptus Road is a local name). Glenburn Road runs off the main Whittlesea - Kinglake Road near the Kinglake hotel (refer to Melway ed. 36 - Kinglake Map 380 and Touring Map X910 Q11). Alternatively, if you are travelling from Yea and Glenburn down the Melba Highway, turn off into West Bridge Road and The Gums is approximately 4km.
