Camping at Murrnong

Visit our diverse 20 acre farm for a family camping trip or unique stay along the Hume freeway. Murrnong is a perfect getaway from the city to reconnect with nature and animals, and enjoy the peacefulness under a starlit sky.

Enrich the farm stay experience with optional extras of farm tours and guided meeting of the animals. Farm produce available to purchase.

At Murrnong, camping sites are in the native forest, beside the orchard, at the end of the olive grove, or nestled between stone pines and carob trees. Powered camping is available for vans, trailers and motorhomes. There’s free fire wood available to collect around the farm and rainwater available in modest quantities. Children welcome, and well behaved dogs, both under your adult responsibility.
