CAMPING IN NATURE
In a remote location simple pleasures are appreciated. Free from the distractions of modern life it is an opportunity to connect with partners, children and friends. Improved well-being, mood and sleep are some of the other recognised benefits of camping in the wilderness. One study concluded campers after sleeping away from artificial light for a week had reset their circadian rhythms and were less tired.
Australians have had a strong relationship with camping dating back to our early settlers and explorers. Holidaying under canvas is experiencing a renaissance. Luxe Tents are designed to provide a comfortable and hassle free camping experience. We use beautiful bell tents and only the best tried and tested equipment.

FISHING & KAYAKING
Your tent is located beside the Dargo River. An amazing place to go fishing or kayaking with mountains and wilderness surrounding you from all angles. Fly fish for brown trout, blackfish, Australian grayling, mountain galaxias, congoli, common galaxias and eels.
The Dargo Climb
Probably Victoria's second-toughest sealed climb, after the infamous Mount Baw Baw. A combination of very steep, irregular gradients, a rough (though sealed) road surface, relatively little shade, and the position of its toughest section near the top, make it a very tough challenge.
The Dargo hillclimb begins a few kilometres north of Dargo, Victoria, on the Dargo High Plains Road. The climb is easy to find, as there is only one sealed road in to and out of Dargo.
Mitchell River Walking Track - One hour drive from camp site
From river to gorge top, the semi-remote Mitchell River Walking Track follows the west bank of the river downstream from Angusvale through the Den of Nargun gorge, which is lined with remnants of temperate rainforest. There are spectacular views from the river to the top of the gorge.
CAMPING BY THE DARGO RIVER
Camp under the walnut trees, swim in the pristine Dargo river, sit by the campfire, have a steaming bush bath, fall asleep to the sound of the river, wake up to your own private fishing spot and brew a pot of tea or fresh coffee.
