Any recommendations for bush camping and detecting around Stawell area

Post  ThirstyMiner on Mon Feb 20, 2017 1:59 pm

Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for bush camping around Stawell, or any other area nearby.
We are coming from the Barossa, so another hour in the car to get somewhere decent is neither here nor there.
We have a crew planning a trip from SA at Easter. I have no knowledge of the area and where you can and can't go or camp.
We would prefer bush locations that are likely to be less inundated. No only a bit of detecting, but general 4wd touring and anything else that you think is worth doing while we are there.
Any pointers appreciated.
Thanks.

Cant help you with areas to detect. Other than the usual maps of the areas you wish to explore.

Cheers,
NG.

Check out lake Londsdale, just up the road from some good ground at the 'iron barks'
good amount of water in the lake atm and some cracking camping spots, some deep shafts across the road on the north side of the lake too.

G'day you might want to check out the - Plantation Campground,

it is on the edge of the Grampians National Park, near Halls Gap. Highly recommended not really well known, I can't post link to it yet, so check it out with the above link that NeoGeo posted and look it up - enjoy.

Great spot for 'Twitchers'

Thanks Guys, I will check them out.

Is the lake suitable for a kayak and are there any fish in it?

Guests with a plan to holiday at the Grampians should plan on exploring the charming lakes that the area houses. Lake Lonsdale is one of those scenic waterways that offer a wide array of natural attractions and activity options suitable for all age groups.

Just within a few miles from the quaint township of Halls Gap, Lake Lonsdale on the Western Highway is truly a must-go destination in this region. Most of the time, the lake boasts high water levels; therefore a wide array of water activities are enjoyed all-year-round. Visitors can swim, ski and go fishing at this lake.

Kayak would be good on this lake, definitely redfin (English perch) possibly trout and yabbies' have been on the move.

Little bit further up the road to the south is lake fyans, fantastic lake, (but I would be avoiding the caravan park at all costs IMHO.)
