  1. Met a group from a Victorian bushwalking club here. Tank was 3/4 or so full. Platform is a handy spot for chatting and cooking off the ground. There are several small areas cleared of stones for tents. If it rained heavily I’d want to be very careful of tent position here, you may get flooded.

  2. I camped here the night of 5/9/15 tank almost full. Weather was perfect, I found it a lovely spot. Found a nice level tent site. Trees are bigger than in the picture.

  3. Camped here overnight in October. Woke up sometime in the middle of the night with the sound of gunsots and ricochet off rocks with spotlights flashing around! Just lay as flat as I could until the commotion departed after a few minutes. The hariest part of the whole trail! Saw lots of goats before and after this camp site, so I’m assuming it was all legit. I did walk up to the lookout just west of the campsite to view the sunset on the wonderful surrounds.

  5. A nice campsite, tank seemed to be quite full ( 5/5/18). Walked from Mt Arden Sth. A challenging section along a creek bed with several “down hill” waterfalls. Only lasted an hour and a half or so.

  6. Stayed here on 1st July. Cleared site for tent lower from platform. No worries about pegs for ground soft enough. Tank had water. Firewood about but I got there too late to gather wood. Frost again next morning.
