Hi

Looking for some great camp sites and parks along the vic coast mainly west of Melb so Queenscliff to Apollo Bay

Im wanting to set off late feb early march for a couple of days and introduce my two boys 4 and 2 to camping and they love the beach so looking fo family friendly close to the beach as possible sites.

Any suggestions welcome

Sorry no personal experience with camps along that area
but there are plenty in the Great Otway National Park.

We just stayed at Blanket Bay - 20mins past Apollo Bay, for 6 days. We have 2 kids - 4yr old and 8 month old girls and they had a ball! Great beach too - sheltered from waves and a sand stretch for sandcastles. I just wrote up a review in the locations section of here.
Lorne is a nice spot, but can be quite busy. We used to camp on the upper bank of the river but that is all gone now :(
Airies Inlet is also a nice spot, but I've never camped there (nice beach and river though).
