Shoreham Foreshore Reserve

Private Campground - Victoria


Shoreham Foreshore Reserve is a narrow 2.5km strip of Crown Land on Western Port Bay in the coastal village of Shoreham. Shoreham is approximately 75km south of Melbourne on the Mornington Peninsula. The Camping ground consists of ninety-five unpowered sites. There are two amenity blocks which include male and female toilets, each with showers and an adjoining laundry. The Camping ground area has three tracks leading down to the beach. The beach is used for a variety of recreational purposes such as surfing, fishing, swimming, beachcombing, kayaking, etc. This stretch of beach is home to many migratory birds who fly thousands of kilometres to breed here each year. The Shoreham main beach can be located via Beach Road. Strict dog regulations apply throughout the Reserve and it’s beaches.


All dogs are banned from entering the Reserve camping area. The scent of dogs stresses the native wildlife and unleashed dogs pose a risk to campers. Dog restrictions within the Reserve and it’s beaches state that dogs must be always on a leash. During Daylight Savings times dogs are prohibited in the Reserve and it’s beaches from 9am to 7pm daily. From 7pm to 9am dogs are allowed on a leash. The Reserve is regularly patrolled, and penalties apply for users who breach dog regulations. Mornington Peninsula Shire manages all breaches of dog regulations under the Domestic Dog Act1994. Note: Feral and domestic cats pose a risk to wildlife and are handed over to the Shire council if captured.
