Cronomby free camp: Woomelang

On our second day in Victoria, we came across this lovely freedom camp about 2 hours south of Mildura in the town of Woomelang. We only stopped for a lunch break but stayed a bit longer to have a look about because the council have done such a good job of making their campground clean and welcoming.

While it is technically free to stay, they do ask that you stop in at the local store and either make a donation or a purchase.

There is plenty of room in the flat camping area for even the big rigs. In the middle of the campground is a communal firepit space perfect for night socialising, multiple picnic tables scattered around and rubbish bins supplied. There is a single toilet provided for campers which was clean and well-maintained.

It's well worth taking a stroll along the pathways around the lake to check out the amazing murals on the tanks and pictures on display around the park. We took our time wandering around and having a good look. If you are into trains you can continue on to see the old railway station near the silos. The sign at the front of the park says there is fishing but we weren't here long enough to check that out.

Just down the road is the historic Woomelang shearing shed. Built in the 1950s, many of the district's farmers would bring their herds into town to be shorn. It was very interesting to look around and still smells like sheep!

If you're in the area this is a great spot for a lunch break, an overnight stop or a couple of days' rest from driving. We were certainly impressed.
