Stage One of the Point Nepean Campground was completed in December 2022.

The project

The Point Nepean Campground is a $4.5 million facilitated camping experience within the park’s historic Quarantine Station precinct.

The low-impact campground consists of 36 tent pads that sit on footings made from 100 per cent recycled materials. Two and four-person tents, featuring camp beds and storage, are provided for visitors. 

Hot showers, toilets and basic kitchen facilities provided at the nearby Isolation Hospital Ward building. This heritage-listed building has been carefully refurbished as part of the $4.5 million campground project.

The new campground will offer a more immersive experience at this special national park, helping to foster conservation among visitors, while providing unique outdoor activities and supporting local businesses. 

In 2023, a second stage of the campground will see additional tent pads and facilities added.

Project funding

The Victorian Government has provided $4.5 million to create the new campground, including funding from the $106.6 million Victoria’s Great Outdoors program and also from the Regional Tourism Investment Fund - Stimulus Round, via the Department of Jobs Precincts and Regions.

Who we worked with

During this project, Parks Victoria worked with Heritage Victoria and the Bunurong Land Council Aboriginal Corporation. The Point Nepean National Park Advisory Group has been a key stakeholder during development of the campground and the park’s master plan.
