Bear Gully camping area
At the bottom of the cape, just to the east of its historic lighthouse, the Bear Gully camping area is the only overnight option in the park, its shady campsites nestling among tall banksias. From here you can rock-hop along small sheltered coves all the way to Walkerville – you’ll be rewarded with fine views of the peaks and islands of Wilsons Promontory National Park. To reach the campsite from Walkerville, 10 km away, take Walkerville Rd and turn onto Bear Gully Rd. Bookings are required and there is a camping fee of $34 a night.

This campsite is located in Cape Liptrap Coastal Park
This windswept coastal park protects a curving, slender peninsula overlooking Bass Strait. There’s swimming here in sheltered coves and in body-bashing surf, as well as excellent fishing. The park, which extends from Point Smythe to Waratah Bay, is accessed from the Tarwin Lower–Waratah Rd – take the turn-off onto Cape Liptrap Rd.
