Barwon Heads Caravan Park

If camping is more your style the Barwon Heads Caravan Park is your place. You can bring your caravan, camper van or tent, or even rent a cabin if comfortability is key to your camping adventure. It’s only a couple of minutes’ walk to the beachfront or up the bluff from anywhere in the caravan park.

It’s the perfect place to catch the sunrise and be soothed to sleep by the sound of the waves. The caravan park is the ideal place if you really want to make the most out of your coastal retreat, it’s also great if you’re travelling in a group or with a bunch of kids in tow.
