First Wannon Hiker Camp - Major Mitchell Plateau
Check In: 13:00|Check Out: 12:00
First Wannon Hike-in Camping Area is a small bush camp situated in a saddle at the headwaters of the First Wannon Creek. This site is for overnight hikers traversing the Major Mitchell Plateau. Surrounded by stunted eucalypts and sub-alpine vegetation, it provides shelter from the changeable Plateau weather.
First Wannon Hiker Camp can accommodate a maximum of 16 people in one designated area. A camping permit is required for each individual and is bookable online. A Trip Intention Form or Group Activity Statement must be lodged with Brambuk The National Park and Cultural Centre at least two weeks prior to undertaking this overnight hike.
One non-flush toilet is provided. However it is infrequently serviced. Campers must be self-sufficient, prepared for severe weather and remote area walking and should adopt a minimal impact approach. No camp fires are permitted - small fuel stoves only.
