Swan Lake camping area
Though not quite as magical as a Russian folk tale, this is a nice spot. The lake is nestled among sand dunes and is a good place for a picnic and a lie-down. Travel west of Portland on the road to Nelson for 30 km and you will find the turn-off for Swan Lake Rd, a steep, loose-gravel road with a number of sharp twists. Caravans will need to be towed by a 4WD. The site is on the Great South West Walk, 16 km from Lake Monibeong.

This campsite is located in Discovery Bay Coastal Park
The glorious oceanfront that stretches west from Cape Bridgewater for 50 km, almost to the South Australian border, is protected within the confines of Discovery Bay Coastal Park. The region’s natural attractions include Victoria’s highest sea cliffs, pristine beaches and a network of massive sand dunes. The fur seal colony at Cape Bridgewater is one of the highlights.
