September holiday camping at Woodfordia

ALTHOUGH the Woodford Folk Festival will not go ahead again this year, families can still take advantage of the beautiful 200ha (500 acre) Woodfordia site with news that camping will be available at the stunning Lake Gkula camping area during the September school holidays.

The camping area features comfortable amenities and hot showers, large flat shady sites and an abundance of bush walking, hiking and nature trails, plus the lake, which is great for swimming.

Weather permitting, each night staff will manage communal bonfires around the site and kids can also bring their bikes and scooters.

As a registered Land for Wildlife site, visitors will get the chance to see many of the beautiful native animals that call the campground home including echidnas, kookaburras, wallabies, goannas and more.

A general store is located next to Lake Gkula for any last-minute items, snack, treats or forgotten needs, and is open daily from 7am-2pm.

Bookings require a three-night minimum stay and tickets start at $15 per night for children aged 2-17 and $25 for adults, with children under two years free.

Sites are available at the site, located at 87 Woodrow Road Woodford, from Saturday September 18 until Monday October 4.
