This Great Ocean Road camping adventure is slow-paced with plenty of overnight stays to ensure you can explore the region in depth. Let’s get into it.
Begin your ultimate Great Ocean Road camping experience with a stay in Torquay at Torquay Foreshore Caravan Park.
Check out the shops, dine on the esplanade, or take a walk along the beach.
You can’t visit Torquay and not stop by Bells Beach – a world-renowned surfing spot!
Make the short trip to nearby Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie for a sweet treat.
For an extra treat book yourself into the new glamping tents.
Just a short drive down the road is Anglesea and Anglesea Family Caravan Park which is your next overnight stay. With a beach and riverside location, new facilities, a pool, and within walking distance to the shops you won’t want to leave.
On your drive be sure to stop by Point Addis Lookout for sweeping clifftop views of the coast.
Take a walk from the park along the river or beach.
For an afternoon of fun check out Anglesea Paddleboats and Canoe Hire and paddle to your heart’s content.
Wake up refreshed and ready to take on another day of adventure. Make your way towards Lorne and Lorne Foreshore Caravan Park.
A stop at Point Roadknight is a great idea if you are planning a morning beach walk.
The tiny hamlet of Aireys Inlet is not to be missed nor is Split Point Lighthouse.
If you are looking for an iconic Great Ocean Road selfie moment, the Great Ocean Road Memorial Arch provides the perfect backdrop.
Admire the view from Teddy’s Lookout.
Your beachfront stay awaits in Wye River at Wye River Beachfront Campground. Wye River, just 20 minutes from Lorne and 35 minutes from Apollo Bay, gives visitors a taste of the Otways and beach culture in a lovely, laid-back package
Take the easy 20-minute walk between Wye River and Separation Creek known as Paddy’s Path.
Check out Wye General Store and Cafe.
An abundance of wildlife can be spotted in the surrounding Great Otway National Park, including swamp wallabies, possums, grey kangaroos and koalas
Day five is here and that means our camping adventure is coming to an end but don’t worry there is still much more to see and do in Apollo Bay and Marengo. Our accommodation for the night is Marengo Family Caravan Park.
On your way into Apollo Bay make sure to visit Marriner’s Lookout. An easy 10-minute walk from the car park is rewarded with spectacular ocean, beach, hinterland, and town views.
If you have some time in the afternoon you could join a kayak tour with Apollo Bay Surf and Kayak and paddle out to the seal colony in the Marengo Marine Sanctuary.
Be sure to visit Wildlife Wonders and get up close and personal with the nature of the Great Ocean Road region.
On your final day, you could choose to enjoy a sunrise coffee by the beach. Pack up your camping gear, bid farewell to the coastal campgrounds, and take the memories of your ultimate camping adventure back home.
If you are short on time but looking to take on a Great Ocean Road camping adventure you could trim this down to a four-day adventure by spending nights at Anglesea, Lorne and Apollo Bay.
If time is no issue then why not extend your trip? You could begin your trip with a night at Torquay Foreshore Caravan Park, then add in nights at Kennett River Family Caravan Park, and Skenes Creek Foreshore Caravan Park.
