Bush Camping in the Grampians/Gariwerd
Posted on March 20, 2019

For many climbers heading to the Grampians, dispersed camping/bush camping is their preferred choice. As always, it pays to be informed. There are areas you can’t disperse camp and in the places where you can, there are rules and regulations.

The more recent Grampians visitor guide clearly shows the areas where bush camping is not allowed. Check this out and know where you can go. Read the rules – most importantly around campfires as we start coming into cooler weather.

Dispersed or bush camping is not permitted inside the hatched areas displayed on the park map.
While bush camping, remember Campfires are not permitted –fuel stoves only
Only camp in previously cleared areas
Leave no trace of your visit –take all rubbish home with you
Camp at least 25m from waterways and 1km from campgrounds.

*Campfires are only allowed in the park in the official metal ring fireplaces

Keep yourself informed.

*Visitor guide including bush camping area restrictions available to download at end of post.

So I'll probably be heading down to the Gramps and Araps over Easter to join the multitudes. I have a van and am planning to free camp in the Gramps. Don't worry, I'll be taking the map showing where free camping is allowed - I'm not intending on camping where I shouldn't.

I'm looking for good out of the way spots to roll up with my van that aren't just the side of a dirt road. Preferably out of sight of randoms who are just happening to go by during the night. I don't need a toilet (not that free camping is allowed near any toilets) or fire place or anything in particular. Just a quiet out of the way spot.

Anybody have any suggestions?

Driving anywhere off a road opens you to being fined for driving off the roads and vegetation damage.

I wasn't proposing driving off road. I was hoping for out of the way carparks or pull outs on quiet roads.
