This is one of several camp grounds located within the Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park.
The western section of the Park has two distinct types of camping – coastal camping with ready access to the beach (Shoreline Drive Campgrounds 1-19 and Paradise Beach Campground), and bush camping a short drive to Lake Victoria and Lake Wellington (Red Bluff and Spoon Bay). Most sites provide for Tents, Campertrailers and Campervans, with limited sites that provide for Caravans and larger motorhomes. Dogs permitted in areas west of Loch Sport and around Paradise Beach and Golden Beach to The Honeysuckles.
The tranquil Gippsland Lakes are a system of coastal lagoons separated from the Tasman Sea by the coastal dunes of the Ninety Mile Beach. Seven rivers terminate at the lakes – the Latrobe, Avon, Nicholson, Tambo, Mitchell, Macalister and Thomson rivers. A favourite holiday destination for many Victorians, days can easily be filled with a range of activities on the water or on dry land.
Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park is located in East Gippsland. The western section of the park is accessible by a sealed road via Seaspray and Golden Beach. Paradise Beach Campground and Shoreline Drive Campsites 1-120 are located in campgrounds along Shoreline Drive. Red Bluff and Spoon Bay Camping Areas are accessed via signposted sandy tracks off the Loch Sport Road.
Please note: GPS Co-Ordinates are approximate and provided in most cases to get you to the National Park entrance or as close to the camp site as possible. Once inside the park there should be signs to the actual camp grounds. Failing this please check with National Parks for further directions.
