Description

Leisurely bushwalks around the camp reveal an abundance of seasonal orchids, wildflowers, wildlife and birdlife. Enjoy the bush with the luxury of power and clean hot showers.

On colder nights the camp lounge know as the ‘Bluff Knoll Ski Club HQ' with its wood heater is a cosy way to spend an evening in the bush.

At night, the peace of the Camp Ground is interrupted by the calls of the Boobook Owl and the Tawny Frogmouth.

Our wonderful outdoor undercover kitchen provides campers with preparation areas, free gas barbeques, fridge/freezers, microwaves, toasters, kettles, fresh water and seating & tables.

An open fire is provided near the camp kitchen for the enjoyment of all campers. Here many yarns are swapped over a glass of red wine. Impromptu sing-a-longs and poetry recitals occur and the kids toast their marshmallows *.

A special little Nature Trail has been developed at the camp for those campers who would like to experience the Stirling Ranges without climbing a mountain. This walk abounds in orchids during wildflower season. There are also other walks from the camp and maps can be found in the Table Tennis Room.

Small lap dogs by arrangement only.

We welcome ‘caravanners’ and campers - singles, couples, families and groups.

The camp is perfect for schools and tour groups.

Stunning location!
Just went down to the Stirlings to climb Bluff Knoll. We camped overnight at Mt Trio Camp ground. What a find! We particularly loved the Bluff Knoll ski club HQ.

It was truly delightful. Thank you, John, for your kind hospitality. We will be back!

Lovely spot
Whilst this type of camp may not be everyone's cup.of tea, it was definitely ours. Bush camping at it best. Basic well-maintained facilities. Campers kitchen which invites people to be social. Wildlife in abundance with Australia's friendliest magpies. Peaceful and serene. Close to the Stirling Ranges with amazing views. Loved this place ?

Amazing, Biodiverse Orchid Walk
We took the orchid walk at Mt. Trio camp in late September. It normally begins at 8:30 AM, but they were happy to accommodate a 10:30 start time. The walk was expertly led by John and Jarrad. It was 1 hour, 45 minutes long at an easy ambling pace over mostly level terrain. The area is former sheep pasture/woodland on the border of Stirling Range National Park.

What we saw was amazing-- over 15 species of wild orchids in bloom! Without the guides, we would not have found most of them! While many flowers were small (1-4 cm), a few were quite large (8-14 cm), with incredible variety of color and form. Naturalists, ecologists, and evolutionary biologists would love this excursion! Although the guides kept explanations appropriately simple, the biodiversity on display demonstrated the concepts of adaptive radiation, coevolution, hybridization, and pollinator ecology (my jargon, not John and Jarrad's). John and Jarrad also interpreted traditional aboriginal uses for local native (non-orchid
