Camping at Murrnong

Our diverse 20 acre farm is perfect for a weekend camping getaway or road trip rest spot for anyone with off-grid and self reliant interests. There are a variety of spaces across the farm for small and large groups, including private nooks at the end of the olive grove and large vehicle parking by the orchard. On the edge of a quiet country town, Murrnong is a sanctuary to enjoy a beautiful yet productive landscape beneath a starlit sky.

Enrich the farm stay experience by requesting a farm tour or guided meeting of the animals. Farm produce, including seasonal fruit and preserves, are available to purchase.

Camping spaces

At the far corner of the farm stone pine, carob trees and native bunya pines create a shady, secluded campground. A short walk up the dam bank will put you in prime position to watch magnificent sunsets. Beside the pines/carobs is a grove of young oak trees, providing a cool, calming space in summer.

About the locality

The farm is within walking distance of the V/Line train station and Violet Town shops, library, post office, public swimming pool, walking track, and health clinic. On the second Saturday of each month Violet Town comes alive with the bustle of the monthly market.

Within 30 km are beautiful Strathbogie ranges with granite country hiking, wildlife and natural swimming holes. Nearby Benalla has an art gallery, rose garden, North East Artisan crafts, Winton Wetlands, and the Wall to Wall festival street art. In the opposite direction is Euroa, with a multitude of cafes and evening venues with occasional live music.

Camping details

We ask that campers respect the property as a functional farm, and keep a positive impact on the land. Food scraps can be added to our compost, but land fill and recycling to be taken when leaving. Free fire wood can be collected around the farm. We offer our rainwater, and hope visitors use it wisely. Dogs are welcome, under close supervision and kept away from farm animals. Visitors can help us with animal care, but please don’t feed them without us. We observe total fire ban rules and camp fires should be managed with usual fire safety – don’t leave unattended
