Port Albert Parking Area

Rest Area Overnight - Victoria


An idyllic seaside coastal village within South Gippsland fronting Bass Strait and just East of Wilsons Promontory. A picturesque and peaceful location, Port Albert attracts visitors from around Australia and overseas. It’s ‘off the beaten track’ location means a short 6km detour from the main road is required to visit this charming little town.

Photographers, artists, anglers, historians, walkers, diners and anyone with an interest maritime history will relish in what Port Albert has to offer. Its close proximity to Tarra Bulga National Park & the famous 90 Mile Beach makes it a nice destination for those traveling the East Coast.

Recently updated RV facilities make Port Albert a convenient overnight stop-over point for caravans & campers. These facilities are free to use and are located close to the township and boat ramp.  There are six overnight bays which are designated with yellow lines. If you require a key for the dump point, you can get this from the service station.

While you are here check out the Gippsland Regional Maritime Museum and the Old Port walking trail. Maximum stay is 24 hours.

Can be tightly packed in just like a shopping centre car park.

Very nice town lots to see, BUT had to forgo the overnight stop as found it unsuitable in the allocated parking area for our 5th wheeler ..

A good overnight stop for small rigs, no more than 6 metres! The place is set up with parking bays as in a street. The bays are small and close together. A caravan was backed up onto the grass as it was too big for the short bay. Optus and Vodafone reception is marginal. TV reception is excellent. A dump point is on the site, but key to be obtained from Servo or Museum. As our rig is 6 metres long, we were fine, but others will be disappointed.

Very large car / boat park, but only a few sites available signposted for fully self contained vehicles. As stated, within the yellow lines. An absolutely lovely spot when we stayed, as the weather was still / calm. May be open to the weather conditions if windy

Pretty much an ideal model for RV facilities in small towns. Good facilities provided and in return the RVers support the town. The Customs House Inn (good food & licensed) 100m away had strong RV patronage for dinner. Great little coastal village with the RV parking in the centre of town picturesque and walking distance to all town amenities.

Port Albert is a lovely spot the campsite is basically in a car park on the shoreline. Dump Point is adjacent but need a key. Beautiful sunrises over the ocean. Would be fairly exposed in bad weather.

Called in to stay the night found the bays far to small for 5th wheeler 25ft long ..beautiful location but not for big rigs
