South West Coast of Victoria

          Victoria is one of the states of Australia and famous for its numerous places of interests such as museums, beaches for swimming and for surfing plus other water sports, camping and hiking, nature trekking and many more. One of its famous places is its South West coast territory which basically is composed of the coastline between Geelong on the Western edge of Port Phillip and the equally familiar town of Nelson down near the SA border.

          And for those whose interest is into camping, sharing with you on this post a few of the interesting campsites which are specifically located in parks and reserves: 

" 1. Cobboboonee National Park- oftenly described as a combination of wetlands, forests and heathlands,  one can reach this area by traversing through the Princess Hwy between Portland and Datmoor. This site is quite popular to those who are fond of hikinh and horseriding. 

2. Blanket Bay Camping Area- situated near the ocean beach going to the South West of Apollo Bay, this is one of the early favourites for those who love nature and trekking activities. And if one wishes to continue a little more along the way, he then can found the familiar  Historic Cape Otway Light Station. 

3. Hammonds Road Camping Area- plenty of open space at this campground up in the far north of the national park. Back towards the coast close to Aireys Inlet, nice short walks include the easy Distillery Creek Nature Trail and the Moggs Creek Circuit. 

4. Sharps Track Camping Area- this one is up on the hinterland behing Lorne. To stretch your legs, head to the nearby Sheoak Picnic Area and follow the well-graded trail to Upper and Lower Kalimna Falls. "
