Victoria’s landscape, terrain and climate is completely diverse from one spot to the next. You could go camping at a surf beach next to a forest one night, then deep into the mountains the next. There are so many decent places to go camping in Victoria that are within a close proximity to each other, so if you’re ever down this way, make sure that you bring along the tent and allow plenty of time for it!
Fine, squeaky, white sandy beaches wrap around the south-east coast, with the Great Ocean Road to the west which includes the famous Surf Coast & infamous Shipwreck Coast, all providing incredible options for an unbeatable experience of coastline camping in Victoria.
Step away from beach and head on a night of camping in the forest with dozens to chose from, whether it be among the ferns at somewhere like the stunning Lake Elizabeth Campground in the cool-climate Otways or try the dry-eucalyptus covered mountains at the Grampians where you’ll be sharing the campground with Kangaroos. For a bit of both, visit Mount Buffalo in the Victorian High Country or the many other amazing places to go camping in the Australian Alpine Region.
