This is an easier form of bushwalking where walkers camp near their cars and go off on day walks in the knowledge they will have all the creature comforts waiting for them on their return. Suitable for small children who can walk with their parents or choose to stay at the campsite and get into trouble or have fun as the case may be.

The Lake Catani camping ground on Mount Buffalo is one of the best car camping sites in north-east Victoria. Some sites at Lake Catani can be pre-booked with the National Park office through their website.
