Description

Corringle Beach Campground is located on the Corringle Slips on the Lower Snowy River estuary. Camp between the sea and a lake in banksia woodlands close to the beach. Dogs (on a lead) are welcome in this perfect fishing and boating location. The campground has 24 designated sites and is equipped with several pit toilets, untreated water, picnic tables and fireplaces. Fees apply and sites must be booked online. Corringle Foreshore Campground, also known as Corringle Slips, is a relatively natural camping area close to the beach. In the 19th century, Marlo was a busy port and Corringle served as an area for offloading goods and repairing vessels. The 'slips' are the old slipways built in the 19th century to launch and repair boats. You can see their rusting remains today. Water and boating activities can be enjoyed within the estuary, at Mots Beach, Sampsons Beach and up from the Marlo jetty. Swimming is not advised as the ocean beach at Corringle is unsafe due to strong rips and currents. Surf fishing is very popular. The most common fish caught are Salmon, Tailor and Gummy Shark. A concrete boat ramp is located at the slips, providing access to the Snowy River estuary. An amateur fishing licence is required for all waters in Victoria including ocean fishing. Areas sheltered from the wind and suitable for canoeing include the Corringle Slips backwater and Frenchs Narrows. The walking track from the picnic area takes in the Snowy River backwater providing access to the beach. Corringle Foreshore Campground is 18km south of Newmerella (just west of Orbost). Turn off the Princes Highway at Newmerella and follow the Back Corringle Road for approximately 14km (9km gravel and 2WD accessible). The access road ends at the campground which is well signposted.
