Best of all, three of these beaches are renowned in the caravan and camping world for their foreshore camping reserves and a wonderful sense of family and community spirit that goes back more than 70 years.

The views of the water just a few metres away at Rosebud, Rye and Sorrento are million dollar – but the camping rates are very reasonable. The facilities are excellent (just bring your own tent or caravan), and right over the road are coastal villages with supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, sports and fishing gear suppliers and more. The reserves are very well managed and maintained by the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council, so you’re assured of quality camping. And if you come off-peak, you can book great-value camping packages.
