Moora Moora Reservoir is a small reservoir in the heart of the Grampians National Park. Located in the the upper reaches of the Glenelg River catchment, Moora Moora is an important resource for Supply System 6 of the Wimmera Mallee Pipeline.

The catchment covers an area of about 40 km2 and acts as a sub-catchment for the Rocklands Reservoir catchment. Moora Moora can also receive water directly from the upper Glenelg River via transfers along the Moora Inlet Channel.

Recreationally, Moora Moora is especially popular for bush camping, fishing and boating.

Campgrounds open

Camping is permitted in regional Victoria under step three of the road map to COVID Normal, subject to gathering restrictions and social bubbles. This means you can camp with the people you live with, your intimate partner, or the household you have formed a bubble with (your household can book campsites with up to five members of your bubble household).

Communal facilities such as toilets and boat ramps remain open for visitors from regional Victoria. Physical distancing and outdoor gathering requirements apply at all times – including at the boat ramp and on your boat.

Please note, masks are always required to be worn while outdoors at campsites, unless eating, drinking, smoking (if permitted), or if you have a lawful exemption from wearing one.

Step 1 to reopening applies to residents of metropolitan Melbourne. Under step one, you must not travel more than five kilometres from where you live except for permitted reasons such as work or education if these cannot be done at home.
