A local favourite for camping and picnics, the Hunts Bridge Camping Area is sprawled along the bank of the gorgeous Moorabool River in Morrisons, half an hour from Ballarat. 

With plenty of space for tents, RVs and caravans, there are many great spots to set up camp in the huge clearing along the roadside, and a few more campsites down along the water. 

The river is shallow and makes a great spot to cool off during summer and to bring the kids for a splash.

What a beautiful place to stay. The river was spectacular. The kids had such an amazing time. Definitely a spot to visit.
1 thing that was a little disappointing, was their was no toilets and with such a busy weekend it was very difficult without some.
