Hi. New member from Melbourne hoping for tips and advice.

Postby Joakes » Thu Jun 11, 2009 5:50 pm

Howdy,

My name is Julian Oakes and I have joined this forum in the hope of getting tips (specifically on places to go) from the experience happy campers. I have recently bought a winch top Drifter Cub and want to take the fambly (Wife and 2 kids aged 9 and 12 and maybe the dog) initailly on four to five day trips on coastal parts of Victoria or Southern NSW.

Does anyone have suggestions for an out of the way place that is accessible but remote on or very near a beach. We don't mind carrying all water/consumables with us. Just want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Thanks
Julian

Hi Julian and WELCOME to the forum.

The forum is a bit quite at the moment so don't give up if you do not get an answer straight away.

Unfortunately, I can not help but I am sure in time someone will be able to give you the info you seek.

Cheers....

It does seem a bit quiet. But I am a patient man. As long as I get a reply in the next ten or fifteen minutes I'll be happy. :-bang

Hello & welcome fellow Victorian.

We don't really have much in the way of "remote" down here in Vic, everything is generally within a days drive.

Only place that springs to mind as being fairly remote/beach
(although haven't been) is Croajingolong National Park

Hi Julian & welcome!

A few beachside places spring to mind.....

Blanket Bay in the national park along the GOR down past Apollo Bay (sorry the actual park name escapes me at the moment! - Otway maybe?)
Princetown Recreation Reserve (just near the 12 Apostles) tho not "remote" it is near (not on) a beach in a pleasant spot
Cape Conran (friends went there over Xmas and loved it - ballot system for busy periods) is probably the more remote of my list

Mac
When's my next holiday??
