EoI: Base Camp at Camp Eureka, Yarra Junction, 23-25 March
ID = 262

The Christmas base camp at Camp Eureka ( enjoys a fine reputation, not least because we have exclusive use of this pristine bushland on the bank of the Little Yarra River.

Arrive any time after 4pm, Friday 23rd. There is a choice of accommodation: private cabins (some with Heritage listing), dorms or camping. The cost is the same- APPROX $25 per person per night. That night we will eat at the pub in Yarra Junction.

I plan to do the Britannia Ridge track on Saturday. It's rated medium/ medium hard.

Saturday dinner is share-a-plate. There is no need to bring anything else, as the kitchen is FULLY equipped.
You must bring a powerful touch, though, because there is no lighting between the buildings, although there is power to the cabins and dorms.

Check out late Sunday morning. I might add a short walk, depending on numbers.

Contact Susan to book.
