Lake Elizabeth campground upgrades

The project

This project is being delivered on Gadubanud Country.

Lake Elizabeth campground is sheltered by tall eucalypt trees and nestled beside the Barwon River in the Great Otway National Park. The peaceful Lake Elizabeth is a short 1km walk away.

The campground is being upgraded with better defined campsites, a new toilet for campers and day visitors, a new shelter, improved carparking and paths, new signs, and several new picnic tables and wood-fired barbecues. Native plants will also be planted to support biodiversity and to better define the campsites.

Project benefits


The upgrades will make it safer and easier and more enjoyable for a wide range of people to visit and stay in the camping area in the park. 


Revegetation with native plants will support biodiversity in and around the camping area. Combined with better defined campsites and paths this will help keep people in designated areas, to further protect vegetation.
