Best Campsites and Camp Grounds Near Melbourne
Melbourne is on the southern tip of mainland Australia. It is informally called the cultural capital of Australia and the sports capital of Australia. Melbourne is the capital of the state of Victoria which is home to Port Phillip Bay, Mornington Penensula, The Great Ocean Road, Dandenong and Macedon mountain ranges, Yarra Valley and over 40 national parks. A few hours drive from Melbourne will take you to some scenic, remote and peaceful camp sites in Australia. It is one of the best places to isolate yourself from daily life and spend a quiet and peaceful holiday in solitude. Most of the camping grounds in Victoria are located beside beaches, inside national parks, and on the banks of picturesque rivers and lakes.
