Allenvale Mill Free Campground, Great Otway National Park
This is a lovely free campground, close to Lorne on the Ocean Road. It is unusual in that the campsites are only accessible by walking the 200 metres or so along a well-surfaced track.
Our only negative about the camping area is that cars are left out of sight, making them vulnerable. Do not leave valuables in vehicles if camping here.
The campsites are clearly numbered and available on a first come basis. The open aspect is pretty and sunfilled with easy access to the St Georges River walking track, on the lower boundary.
To walk from Lorne to the campsite, it would take approximately 41 minutes, according to Google maps. We’d say longer as it is an uphill slog!
Basic toilets are provided on the site.
No dogs allowed (though the walking track to St Georges River and the coast is dog-friendly).
2.7 km to walk from the car parking area to the Coast.
We have some suggested touring itineraries for anyone with plenty of time to explore.
