Tungamah Lions & RV Park

Tungamah is a small town located in the North of Victoria, 24kms south of Yarrawonga and 250kms north of Melbourne. It is surrounded by plains used for sheep and beef farming and sits along the Boosey Creek. Despite being a rural town, it boasts a general store, a hotel that offers accommodation and meals, a police station as well as many sporting clubs.

Overview

Tungamah Lions & RV Park is situated along the north side of Boosey Creek and offers numerous spots to set up a tent, camper trailer or a caravan of any size. The road through the campground is not sealed but it is suitable for any 2wd.

Entrance to Tungamah Lions & RV Park

Although there is no set fee to camp here it is important to place a donation in the honesty box to help towards the cost of upkeep. Please note that you may stay up to 7 days.

Facilities

The facilities offered at Tungamah Lions & RV Park are exceptional considering it’s all for a donation. Near the entrance of the park there are free undercover barbecues, picnic tables, a toilet and shower block, 5 taps for drinking water, bins as well as a covered playground.

Fire pits are dispersed around the campground but please check that there is not a fire ban in place on hot days and make sure your fire is extinguished before leaving.

Experience

We had intended to stay two nights at Tungamah before heading along the North East Silo Art Trail, however, we loved this place so much we ended up staying four nights.

Our campsite on Boosey Creek

The creek offered entertainment for my son who loves to fish and a peaceful tranquil sight for the rest of the family to enjoy. The birdlife in and around the creek was wonderful to watch and it was toped off with a spectacular sunset at the end of the day.

What a way to end the day

Be sure to stop a night or two, (or maybe four!) when next travelling through this welcoming region. It’s a great way to support small local towns and this one certainly far exceeded our expectations. It’s definitely on our visit again list.
