A road trip along the Great Ocean road is an Aussie travel bucket list item, and one that can be ticked off in just a few days! It can also be a very budget friendly holiday, with several low cost and free camping spots to choose from along your route.

Sure, The 12 Apostles and panoramic beach views first come to mind when thinking about the Great Ocean road, but Great Otway National Park also has plenty of waterfalls and forest hikes that are not to be missed. Many of the lower cost and free camping options can be found a bit inland in beautiful forest settings and are a great base from which to explore the national park.

Join us, for the best free and low-cost campgrounds along the Great Ocean Road. Let’s go!
