Vale Queen Elizabeth II. I’ve been trying to find campgrounds named after our monarch – instead today, I’ll feature some places bearing Her name…

Lake Elizabeth and Campground, Otways, Victoria

You’ll find this secluded camp and 1 km walk to the lake in the Great Otway National Park – near The Great Ocean Road and Forrest. It is actually a walk in, tent site only, and dogs are allowed on lead. The lake only formed from a landslide in the 50s, so maybe it is named after our late queen? Spot the platypus and satin bower birds, superb fairy wrens and Eastern yellow robins.

Thanks to Sam and Bridget for these stunning images.

Bettys Beach, near Albany, Western Australia

Beloved Bettys Beach is pet friendly, free camping area, located 50 km east of the Albany townsite. With limited space at this popular campsite, you’ll want to get in early. 

There is a 48 hour maximum stay, and no camping mid February to April when professional fishers use the site in salmon season.

There is no camping on the beach due to soft sand, surf conditions and tides, however campers enjoy direct access to the beach and spectacular water views. It is 2WD accessible. Note: there is a highly steep access road with a small turnaround area.
