Australia Day Weekend

Not sure exactly where to go camping we did a search on the internet and found Murrayville Caravan Park...just over the SA/Vic boarder.
It was a Council run Park with very clean and tidy showers and toilets....and laundry..$10 a night powered site....was well worth the 320klm trip there


Contact Person: Lorraine Yard
Phone Number: (03) 5095 2126
Mobile Number: 0439 952 126
Location Address: Reed Street, Murrayville VIC 3512
Located up the main street of the town and just past the swimming pool, the Murrayville Caravan Park is possibly the most peaceful, cheapest and greenest caravan park in Australia. It is equipped with 8 powered sites and numerous un-powered sites where campers can spread out and enjoy the open spaces. The ablution block was recently upgraded in February 2007 thus the shower and toilet amenities are new and very sufficient. In the future, we hope to have two on-site cabins available for hire.
Facilities: Barbeque, Water Supply, Large Rigs Accepted, Pets Allowed, Power, Showers & Toilets

On the edge of the Park is a Public Pool...Open between 2pm and 6pm dayly at $2.80pp was great on those hot days

We both enjoyed it greatly

We went for a stroll through the town..very old but very tidy...the parks and info center were beautiful....lots of public toilets around

We left on Sunday.........Yes it was well worth the trip there...met a great SA couple that have been on the road 4 years...they spend a lot of time camped there.

It was very hot here....most days the temp in the van was over 40c...we were pleased that our friends from Naracoorte invited us to visit their AC home in the evenings....
