Great grassy flat rural site with waterfront views of Corner Inlet and Wilsons Promontory. Property will have grass slashed around 12-20th Dec ready for the Xmas holiday period and again prior to Easter school holidays, outside of these times the grass will be bit higher. Just a short work to the famous Long Jetty. Easy access and short drive (100m) to the boat ramp. Great fishing both on land and from the boat. Access to Great Southern Rail Trail & Tarra Trail (Leongatha to Port Welshpool) 75km bike track. Wilsons Promontory National park is Victoria's oldest national park. It covers 50,000 hectares and features pristine beaches, forests and places to visit. There is a 19-km (return) walk to Sealers Cove that can be accomplished in a day and the track takes you through mountains, temperate rainforest and secluded beaches. Much of the coast and water around the Promontory is also a marine park with seabirds, seals, turtles and passing whales. There are also various fishing and other cruises available at the Long Jetty Prom Cruises https://www.longjettypromcruises.com.au or https://www.wildlifecoastcruises.com.au for full day Prom Cruises Please pack your insect spray because depending on the season and weather conditions sandflies can be around especially at nightfall. Also be aware that if there has been rain that the block may be wet and boggy so check before driving into the block to avoid getting stuck.

It’s a great location. However, the block of land is not well maintained. Very rough ground, grass and weeds poorly slashed. Poorly signed and you won’t find a no 7 anywhere on the property. Advertised as having views but that’s not the case. Overall not a spot that we’d return to or recommend.

Scratchy camper
Booked 6 nights as we had a caravan 3 people 3 nights, 4 people 2 nights, 5 people 1 night. $680 Place is an open vacant block of land, most of it was boggy , the rest was tractor slashed with deep tractor tyre tracks ( probs not suitable for tents) . As advertised, there is no water, toilets, power or bins. That is ok, we knew what we were in for there. What we didnt know is that the mozzies and little sandflies are epic, and I mean biblical, we are all still rasping our skin away 36 hours later, and we left 36 hours early from our booking as we couldn’t handle it anymore and ran out of our more than ample supply of repellent. There is also no wind break as it is an open paddock and the wind gets pretty full on in Port Welshpool. If you had a boat moored or going in every day from Pt Welshpool and needed a spot to crash and of an evening I could see it possibly being plausible, but for a family in a caravan to do a “ close the the prom holiday camp” no way. Plenty of free or cheap stuff inland and almost as close with drop dunnies and without biting insect infestation. There are no lies in the advertising btw, but for me there is no bang for your buck here at all.

Very generous site (site no. 5). Private and close to the water. Will return!

Port Welshpool Coastal Waterfront
We loved the quiet township that’s perfect for strolling along the beach, walking out on the long jetty, watching the fishing boats come in and bike riding round the town. We were lucky to book within the treed area which felt more private and protected from the winds. The block was in need of slashing, but considering how wet it was, we understand why this wasn’t done, however in the open paddock it looked as though it hadn’t been maintained, slashed for a very long time and was unusable to drive through and set up a caravan. Pretty sad considering how much large area couldn’t be used.

Long Weekend on Camp site 5
Port Welshpool, what a little gem, to get away. Site 5, among the trees was very private, trees were great protection from any wind and felt safe for the kids. The whole town was safe for kids to ride their bikes. Easy walking distance to the jetty to fish and beach to collect shells. Central location to visit Agnes falls, Port Albert for fish and chips. Mozis' were there but Bushman spray kept them away 100%. Outside floor mat was handy to flatten grass. It is bush camping in town.
