Snake Island camping areas (boat-based camping)

Free No dogs/pets No rubbish disposal Non-vehicle camping Toilets Canoeing Fishing Swimming Walking trails

The largest sand island in Victoria has 3 official places for campers: Swashway, Gulf and Huts. None has facilities, so you need to be self-sufficient. Surf-fishing and walking to the remote reaches of the island, including on an overnight hike, tempt most visitors. Access is by boat and depends on the tide – Port Welshpool has the closest boat launch. A camping permit is required.

This campsite is located in Nooramunga Marine and Coastal Park

The Nooramunga Marine and Coastal Park lies 200 km south-east of Melbourne and is framed by the glorious, rugged peaks of Wilsons Promontory. The islands of the park provide a natural buffer for some of the Gippsland coastline from the relentless pounding of Bass Strait. Fish the network of waterways for Australian salmon or peer at old shipwreck sites. The South Gippsland Hwy provides access.
