Lake Elizabeth camping area (walk-in camping)
Lake Elizabeth had an unusual genesis, forming in 1952 after heavy rains caused a landslide that dammed the East Barwon River. It’s a very pretty place, with a campsite you walk to via a 50 m path from the carpark. A nature trail guides you around the submerged valley, and mountain-bikers will enjoy the 12 km trail that does a loop between the lake and the West Barwon Reservoir. Take Kaanglang Rd from Forrest and look for the signage.

This campsite is located in Great Otway National Park
Named after the mountain range that stretches along the rugged coast of the Southern Ocean, Great Otway National Park is blanketed by pristine rainforest and stands of mountain ash, while the seashore is covered in pretty heathlands. The park extends west from Torquay to Princetown, and the ocean has fashioned the coastal limestone here into world-famous coves and rock formations. Beachcombing, walking in cool forests and driving the curvaceous Great Ocean Rd are must-dos for visitors.
