So one of Jules’s friends recommended a new campsite to us, right next to our usual favourite spot at Point Leo. We decided to give it a try and boy we were not disappointed.
The campsites are split by small valleys and trees which makes your camping experience personal, cosy, a little rugged and secluded. My favourite kind of camping.
As we went in October, we could make a fire. It was still cold out, about 12c in the day and maybe 6/7c in the evening. So most of our time was spent visiting the wineries in the region, and stargazing by the fire after dark.
Always such a magical experience, especially when you camp right next to the ocean and fall asleep to the sound of the waves.
This is the best campground on the peninsula by far.
On one of the days, when it did manage to get up to 19/20c, we went for a walk at Point Nepean. Point Nepean National Park is located at the very tip of the Mornington Peninsula, with outstanding coastal scenery and panoramic views of Bass Strait, the Rip and Port Phillip Bay.
The area has a lot of history to it also, with 3-4 different Forts, tunnels, barracks, storehouses, gun emplacements and bunkers from World War 2. You can walk around them freely, which was super cool, kind of like a never-ending maze.
