Rosebud Foreshore Camping

The largest of our three camping reserves, Rosebud’s camping sites stretch 10km along the sparkling water of Port Phillip Bay from Rosebud to the seaside village of McCrae and is managed by the Shire.  Camping facilities include shower and toilet blocks, grassy areas shaded by large trees, kids’ play areas, barbecues, boat launching ramps close by and the extensive shopping of Rosebud just over the road.

The reserve stretches approximately 7km from Anthony’s nose in McCrae down to Chinaman’s Creek in Capel Sound (Rosebud West).

Campsites are available from last weekend of October just in time for the Melbourne Cup weekend to April. There are 812 sites available, both powered and non-powered, all with great access to the beach, amenities and various shops.
