Park Maps & Info

Princetown Recreation Reserve is located on the Great Ocean Road just over 2.5 hours from Melbourne, it is adjacent the Gellibrand River and close the Princetown Wetlands and Princetown Beach.

Being just 6km's east of the 12 Apostles, the park is one of the closest places to camp near the Port Campbell National Park so it is the perfect base for sightseeing the highlights of the Great Ocean Road including Lock Ard Gorge, Gibson Steps and the Apostles.

The Princetown Recreation Reserve offers powered and unpowered sites in a natural setting with kangaroos grazing within the reserve. Clean and basic amenities and BBQs are available at the reserve, all that you need for a relaxing holiday.

Don’t leave your furry friend at home, dogs are welcome year-round.

Fishing, hiking and canoeing are just a few of the activities that are enjoyed by people who camp at the Princetown Recreation Reserve.

When you stay at our Great Ocean Road Parks, your camping fees not only go into maintaining the campground, they are also reinvested back into the magnificent Great Ocean Road coastline in which you are staying. Your fees will go towards maintaining a wide range of public facilities, assets and infrastructure and other coastal projects.

Things to See & Do in
Princetown

The tiny village of Princetown is surrounded by the Gellibrand River and Princetown Wetlands. It is an ideal place to relax and take things a bit slower on your holiday as there’s only a quiet pub in town.

Located on the Great Ocean Road, bordered by both the Great Otway and Port Campbell National Park, Princetown is one of the closest towns to the 12 Apostles. It also connects to the Great Ocean Walk via a picturesque wetland boardwalk which is the perfect spot for a picnic, fishing or kayaking.

The Gellibrand River flats are also well known for one of the best spots for kangaroo spotting.

Unsure what to do, here’s a few attractions & activities!
