Located in the heart of the Orbost State Park, Wood Point is located 20km from the town of Orbost. Wood Point offers all the benefits of a camping ground on the banks of a river, including swimming and fishing.
The road into Wood Point should not be accessed with a caravan. Although the road is suitable for a 2WD vehicle, the road is quite narrow and rocky in areas. From the main street of Orbost turn at the Club Hotel, heading west on McLeod Street. Once out of town McLeod Street turns into the “B” Road, which will take you through the farmland on the Snowy River flats. You will come to a cattle grid followed by a gate that you should continue over and through (please leave the gate as you found it). You are now on Garnetts Track. After going over the Wibenduck Creek you will go past the last of the private property before heading into State Forest. Follow Garnetts Track and turn left down Wood Point Track which will take you directly to the camping ground.
The campground offers around ten individual campsites. The best spot is near the picnic table.
Given the location of the Wood Point campground, it offers numerous activities. Activities available for campers include fishing and swimming in the river. The sand bank also allows a bit of sun bathing.
Best Time To Go
Given the campground is located on the banks of the river, it is recommended that the campground is visited during the warmer months. The campground is not subject to flooding given its elevation in relation to the water level.
