Dargo is Victoria’s most remote town and has a rich history dating back to the early gold rush era.
The Dargo River Inn, run by Christian and Marissa Barrett, is on the outer edge of town as you enter from the south and is a great place to set up camp, or relax in luxury, for a weekend or more.
Set on six acres in a flat grassy valley bordered by steep mountains, the inn has well-maintained cabins, which are clean, neat, tidy, warm, cool and comfortable and all feature separate living areas and large balconies.
Costs start at a very reasonable $60 per person/night, with a minimum charge of $110 per cabin/night.
There’s also a huge grassy campground suitable for tents, camper trailers and caravans around the side. It’s well maintained, flat and well drained, with independent toilet and shower facilities for campers, up with extra portables for peak demand periods.
The Dargo River Inn is popular with adventurers of all styles, including 4WDers, fishers, trail bike riders, mountain bike riders, horse riders and campers as it’s a great base from which to explore the surrounding High Country.
After a busy day outside, head back to the Dargo River Inn bar and enjoy a lively chat with the locals – you’re sure to hear a great tale or two! Have a game of pool, enjoy a cold beer, a wine in front of the fire, or something even warmer!
If the weather heats up, head outside to the impressive beer garden and immerse yourself in the gorgeous scenery.
The Dargo River Inn also has a wonderful restaurant and dining room with a full menu cooked with loving care – you just can’t go past the good ol’ parma!
