Beautiful spot among the manna gums, make sure to look up to spot the koalas. The sites are set in amongst the trees so they are quite private, and there are a few wooden platforms dispersed around the campsite for cooking/sitting (in addition to the main covered shelter). This is the first camp site along the Great Ocean Walk. We saw a big tiger snake on the walk in near the Elliot river crossing, so keep an eye out for those too!

Moderate hike to get to, lovely beachy spot halfway. Sites are quite small, would fit a 4 person tent at most. No fire pits or evidence of fire anywhere, assumed no fires allowed. There's a little two wall shelter amongst the sites with seating, good place to cook and chat. Very good toilet facilities, very well looked after sites.
