Toorongo Falls Face-lift progresses

Improvements to the Toorongo Falls camping areas are continuing as Forest Fire
Management Victoria's continues to upgrade a number of recreation site across
Gippsland.
Acting Latrobe District Manager, John Wood said that so far, works have included
preparations such as fill and levelling of the campground, helping to improve drainage and
create more level camp sites.
“Works are also underway to better define vehicle access and car parking within the
campground,” Mr Wood said.
“In the coming months, the old toilets at both campgrounds will be replaced with brand
new double toilet blocks, and sites will begin to take shape with the installation of
designated fire pits and picnic tables throughout the campground and areas re-established
with grass.
“It’s pretty wet in this part of Gippsland, so the site needs to dry out and grass areas reestablish
in readiness for a busy summer. This means the site will remain closed until mid-
December.
“At this stage, access to the picnic area and popular walking tracks to Toorongo and
Amphitheatre Falls will remain open for the duration of the works.”
If you still want to visit the local area, why not call into the nearby campgrounds at Poplars
Reserve or Checking Station, which are only a short drive to the falls.
