Location information for Wail State Forest


This site is accessable by caravans in good weather.

Getting there

From Horsham 25km NNW on Western Hwy to Wail, left at Wail Nursery sign 1.9km (Check at Forestry Office for best tracks & camps & map). 7km west to Wimmera Rv, on sandy gravel formed tracks. River frontage extends 12km

Alternative access 6.2km SW from Wail on Polkemet Rd (gravel), west 6.2km on Hinnebergs Rd , north 1k to Big Bend camp.

See Wail State Forest notes - Bottlebrush track is very sandy in parts and best avoided by 2WD, I found this out the hard way! I was told by Parks Vic staff that Ironbark track is stone and much better way to access river.
