Lakes Coast Visitor Guide

PAGE 36 I LAKES COAST VISITOR GUIDE Welcome to CARAVAN PARK Nestled in the dunes of Gippsland’s magnificent Ninety Mile Beach. If you’re after fishing, swimming, walking on the beach, or just plain doing nothing, we are the place you’re looking for. Woodside Beach Road, Woodside Beach, VIC 3874 Ph: (03) 5187 1214 E: Pet Friendly *Conditions Apply Pay for 3 nights & get the 4th night FREE* PORT ALBERT YARRAM WOODSIDE LOCH SPORT SALE MAFFRA STRATFORD BAIRNSDALE Fish, surf, swim or simply relax Ten kilometres from Yarram and about half-an-hour from Sale on the South Gippsland Highway, is the small township of Woodside. It has a population of less than 300 permanent residents, but over holiday periods this expands significantly. The town’s facilities include a petrol station, service station, the Woodside General Store, a local country pub, primary school and church. Woodside Beach is 10 kilometres from Woodside where you’ll find a playground with a large sheltered picnic and barbecue area and the Woodside Surf Life Saving Club. During peak summer months the beach is patrolled by members of the surf lifesaving club. JUST OVER THE DUNES If it’s fishing, swimming or walking on the beach that you seek, or a place where you can do nothing, the Woodside Beach Caravan Park could be just the place you are looking for. Nestled in the dunes of Gippsland’s magnificent 90 Mile Beach, this dog-friendly caravan and camping park is the perfect base for a fishing trip. Salmon, gummy shark and flathead are the main catch from this beautiful surf beach. On site you’ll find a kiosk with bait and fishing tackle, ice creams, boogie boards, bread, milk, lollies and other essentials to keep you well stocked. There’s also an infant room, disabled toilet and shower, gas bottle swap, electric barbecue, a laundry with washers and dryers and a traditional book swap. Open fires are permitted, but conditions do apply. Accommodation on offer includes comfortable, fully equipped and air conditioned en-suite cabins that can accommodate up to six people. Double beds are made up, but bedding for single beds and all towels need to be included when you pack for your trip. Many of the camping and caravan sites are nestled among the trees while other tent sites are more open and very close to the dunes of the beach. Either way you can be assured the perfect spot for you. An abundance of bird life, including beautiful black cockatoos that fly over the park regularly, makes a visit to the Woodside Beach Caravan Park all the more special. Just over the sand dunes of the foreshore reserve at Woodside Beach you’ll find the exquisite expanses of the 90 Mile Beach. PHOTO: Visit Victoria
