Beauchamp Falls Reserve Camping is just 40 minutes from the stunning Beauchamp Falls. It makes for a great day out with a base camp to return to at the end of the hike. The falls are located within The Great Otway National Park. A forest which is littered with thick ferns, blackwood and myrtle beech trees.
There are approximately 15 sites at this location. It is recommended to come in early in on the day to nab a good spot. There are nice shaded ones but obvious be wary of camping underneath these depending on the weather conditions.
To get to the campground you get to travel through the world-renowned Great Ocean Road or you can use the route which goes through Beech Forest. The second entrance is recommended if you are not travelling in a four-wheel drive. It is a lot more suitable for 2wd vehicles.
Note that there are many waterfalls though this forest, so it makes for several days of hiking and exploring action. This is the perfect spot for someone who loves waterfalls. Another bonus is that Apollo Bay is just 40 mins away and is a great spot for a dip.
This is one of those free campsites that is one of a kind. Hard to believe there are no fees attached to this amazing location. Free camping in Victoria at its finest.
Also note that there are many others waterfalls in the area, so if you’re into chasing waterfalls, you’ve hit the motherload. And if you fancy a dip in the beach, Apollo Bay is about 40 mins away. This was a great camping experience, and it’s definitely on my list of best free campsites in Melbourne.
