Boreang Campground is a favourite of four-wheel drive enthusiasts exploring the Victoria Valley and more remote sections of the Grampians. It is also a fantastic base for escaping the hustle and bustle of the busier hubs within the park.
The campground features shared fireplaces and picnic tables. There are pit toilets and untreated tank-water is available, however you should bring drinking water with you.
Individual campgrounds need to be booked online in advance and you need to bring your own firewood.
Soak up the panoramic vistas on offer at The Balconies, explore unusual rock formations at Paddy Castle, climb the striking sandstone ridges of Mount Thackeray or relax in the company of kangaroos, kookaburras and cockatoos.
At dusk and dawn, watch kangaroos and wallabies graze in the open grassland and native birds singing among the trees. If you're lucky, you might spot some of the more rare species, including Red-Tailed Black Cockatoos and Gang-Gang Cockatoos.
Drive to Zumsteins and discover the remnants of a historic settlement and holiday retreat. Follow the MacKenzie River Walk from here to Fish Falls and the iconic MacKenzie Falls. Reeds lookout offers spectacular panoramas across the Victoria Valley or a short walk to a sandstone outcrop known as Paddy Castle highlights the unique rock formations found throughout the Grampians.
