If you haven’t done so already, check out our Great South West Walk hiking trail summary or go back to GSWW Section 10 – Monibeong Camp to Swan Lake Camp. Else, let us continue on with this eleventh section of the Great South West Walk from Swan Lake Camp to Tarragal Camp.
Another long section and trust me when I say you will feel it. Don’t leave late on this one because it is easy to miss turn off’s at night. And there are seemingly a lot of turns on this one. Be sure to take careful note on those red directional arrows. We got to the campsite at 10pm. Oops. We thought we had missed it, referring to maps in the dark of the night checking if we were on the right track. Note that there are many arrows along the final path and they are all white – a little disconcerting when you’re supposed to be following red arrows.
However Tarragal Camp is such a beautiful campsite. The layout with little camping vestibules hidden all over the place. So much firewood for a good fire. Needless to say we stayed here for a long time in the morning to enjoy the area and recuperate.
Tarragal Camp is an overnight walkers camp near Mt Richmond National Park set amongst small eucalypts and grass trees. The campsite offers shared table, seasonal tank water (treat before drinking), shelter and toilet. A shared fireplace is provided but fuel stoves are preferred by Parks Victoria.[adinserter block=”5″]
