Burnet Park, Glengarry West

This campsite is nestled in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range, and is surrounded by peaceful bush and farmland, yet is located only 15 minutes from the centres of Traralgon and Morwell.

The site was donated to the Guiding Movement by the Burnet family over 50 years ago, and is now used extensively by Guides and the wider community for camping and outdoor recreation. The site and main accommodation building have recently been extensively redeveloped, with further work planned for the future.
