Mountain Life Flower Farm

4 sites · Tents60 acres · Mount Best, VIC
Heaven on Earth. We must be the luckiest people alive to have somehow become the owners of this property which is only a short drive from the breathtaking Wilsons Promontory. The property has an abundance of temperate rainforest including massive gum trees, 6m tall tree ferns, permanent spring fed creeks, our own lake and more Australian wildlife than most zoos*. Living here, we feel like we're on holiday every day of the year. Camping sites are situated at the back of the property just a quick 5-minute walk from the car park. We'll transport your gear to your campsite so you can get set up quickly and start exploring the property or just kick back and relax. The three campsites are positioned so that you won't hear a sound from any other campers on the property. You will feel like you've got the whole place to yourself. And even though the campsites are isolated you'll still enjoy the convenience of clean regular flushing toilet facilities. But unlike any toilet you'll have used before, you'll get to enjoy a our unique loo with a view which is situated right amongst the rainforest looking out over the magestic tree ferns! Whether you intend to simply relax and listen to all the birdlife, grab a few drinks and head up to the viewing deck to watch the sunset, or put on your hiking boots and explore the rainforest, whatever you do, you will truly get back to nature. As one guest said, "I literally wanted to hug a tree". So what are you waiting for, come and hug one of our trees**. * comparison made with zoos that don't have many Australian animals ** please ensure you have the tree's consent first ;)

The best camping near Wilsons Promontory National Park guide

Overview

About

This wild, windswept peninsula about three hours south of Melbourne is one of Victoria’s top camping getaways. Spot wildlife on coastal walks, or hike up the granite cliffs of Mount Oberon and Mount Bishop, where sweeping views of Bass Strait are the reward. Swim at protected bays like Norman Beach, Sealers Cove, and Squeaky Beach—named for its melodious grains of quartz sand—or leave footprints across the otherworldly Big Drift sand dunes. “The Prom,” as it’s known to locals, has a handful of camping areas scattered on diverse terrain. From trekking to the continent’s edge on an overnight hike to glamping at the well-appointed hub of Tidal River, there’s a place for everyone under the southern stars.

Notable campgrounds

  • Best for families: The Prom’s most popular base camp, Tidal River Campground features hot showers, powered sites, and cabins.
  • Best for wildlife watchers: Wallabies, wombats, and kangaroos are frequent visitors at the quieter Stockyard Campground.
  • Best for hikers: Accessible via a two-hour walk, Sealers Cove Campground offers seclusion by the beach.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. Book campsites, cabins, and overnight permits online at the Parks Victoria website.
  2. Reservations at Tidal River over the Australian summer holidays in late December and January are awarded by ballot. Be sure to submit your ballot by the mid-July deadline.
  3. Most other dates are open up to 18 months in advance, so book early to avoid getting shut out.

When to go

Summer is the best time to swim at the Prom’s beaches, while the bush blooms with wildflowers in the spring. Peak seasons include Easter, Labour Day, Melbourne Cup weekend (the last weekend in October), and Christmas, so be prepared for holiday crowds. Visit during autumn for crisp weather and fewer crowds, and look out for migrating whales offshore during winter.

Know before you go

  • Forget something? The general store at Tidal River Campground carries grocery items and a selection of gear.
  • Pack plenty of water or be prepared to treat water, as drinkable water is in short supply at campsites other than Tidal River.
  • Due to bushfire risk, camp fires and barbecues are not allowed anywhere in Wilsons Promontory National Park. Bring a gas or liquid stove for cooking. 
  • For campers with limited mobility, the Wirilda and She-oak Cabins at Tidal River are fully accessible.
