Handy hint – Campsite tips

The best bit about the Great Vic is that we ride to a new campsite each day.

In the morning, pack your luggage and gear into one of our nearby luggage trucks and we’ll move it to the next campsite for you. Make sure you take note of the truck number so you know where to find your bags at the next campsite.
