Green Hill Lakes Camping Reserve, Ararat

Introduction

  • Green Hill Lakes camping reserve is a free camp (donation box provided at toilet block) with flush toilets, hot showers and on the southern shores of a large lake
  • it has a 5 night restriction (permits must be sought for longer stays)
  • no bookings needed
  • mainly used as an overnight stay for travelers, especially grey nomads in their vans, but also for tourists going to or from the The Grampians or north-west Victoria
  • large area can accommodate over a hundred sites although camping directly on the shore is not permitted according to the sign but many still do
  • very few bushy wind breaks so is quite exposed to the wind and a strong northerly wind coming off the lake will tend to create a lot of dust, while a strong southerly is not easy to find protection from either
  • much of the area closer to the shore has sloping sites
  • there is a boat ramp
  • there is some road noise from trucks on the nearby highway
  • 15 minutes drive to Mt Langi Ghiran winery
  • only 5min or so drive from Ararat (~1hr walk from Ararat train station)
