Mt Tarrengower Road, Maldon VIC 3463

Features

Butts Reserve campground lies at the bottom of Mt Tarrengower, just outside the historic town of Maldon.

Campsites are scattered through a lightly treed area of grassy lawns and surrounded by hillsides covered in huge boulders. These boulders are great for kids to climb.

The reserve features picnic tables, wood fire barbecues, bins, toilets, and water taps along the back of the toilet block. There is also a large undercover area with a concrete floor located separate to the picnic area.

This campsite is accessible by 2wd vehicles and caravans in good weather.

If you continue up the mountain on Mt Tarrengower Road you will soon come to the Mt Tarrengower Lookout, a massive tower which offers panoramic views over Maldon and the surrounding areas.
