Borough Huts Campground is located just out of Halls Gap (the little township at the Heart of the Grampians) and is a nice little campground with space for both tent camping and van/camper trailers. The beautiful Fyans Creek flows just behind the campground, and it was fantastic to wake to the sound of the birds and the gentle flow of the water. Each day at dawn and dusk we had 3 friendly kangaroos that visited, also calling Borough Huts home. (Note: when I say friendly, I’m sure they were, but it is important to note that they are still wild animals, and can be dangerous. It is best to keep your distance from them, and just admire from afar – and it is certainly not advised to feed them).
Boreang Campground is located on the western side of the Wonderland Range, and is also a great base for accessing most attractions with the National Park. At this ground, we stayed at Site 18 – and in my opinion, it was the pick of the sites at the ground. We had a really large grassy area for the camper trailer and car, with our own firepit, and were located close (but not too close) to the amenities block and rainwater tank. With a westerly aspect, we also witnessed beautiful sunsets from the front door of our CUB 🙂
At this particular campground, we also had neighbours close by with two boys the same age as ours, and just as footy mad! This was great, as the boys played for hours and hours together – we barely saw them the whole of our stay!
Smiths Mill Campground is located towards the northern part of the National Park, and is the site of an old sawmill. This particular campground was destroyed during the bushfires in January 2014, and was closed when we initially booked our trip. It re-opened whilst we were at Borough Huts, so we changed our plans slightly, and decided to incorporate this campground into our itinerary – and we were stoked that we did! It was a great campground, and again we were really happy with our site (Number 32). We had a great area for the kids to play, and this time, easterly facing, so beautiful sunrises over the site.
