There is a caravan park in Wandong on Broadhurst Ln.
For more information call John on 0408 332 039.
Wallan, Kilmore and Broadford offer options and are all within a 15 minute drive to the ride start.
Alternatively, the northern side of Melbourne offers a much larger selection of accommodation and most will be within a 30 to 45 minute drive to the event village.
Otherwise we strongly recommend looking at making a full weekend of your visit and head just north of the Mount Disappointment forest to the Valley of a Thousand Hills Sports & Recreation, see loftypm.com. They have accommodation available including a 5 room bunkhouse. For more head to the Hume & Hovell website
