Boar Gully is a secluded campground in the Brisbane Ranges National Park. An easy drive from Melbourne, Boar Gully Campground is at the northern end of this national park known for its scenic walks and spectacular spring wildflowers. Boar Gully is a trailhead (start or finish) of the 3 day Burchell Trail hike.

There are six campsites suitable for tents with an additional campsite set aside for a camp trailer or caravan.

Each site can accommodate a maximum of six people and all campsites are unpowered. There are communal fireplaces and picnic tables throughout the campground, and non-flushing toilet facilities.

Things To Do

The Trailhead to the Burchell Trail at Brisbane Ranges National Park

Burchell Trail

Little more than an hour's drive from Melbourne takes you to the state's richest wildflower habitat. Set in a low range of mountains dissected by rocky gullies, the unusual geology of Brisbane Ranges National Park has preserved plants that have long since vanished from the region, together with a correspondingly diverse bird population and the greatest density of koalas in Victoria.
