Tallawalla, Moggs Creek

Tallawalla Campsite is nestled in bushland between the ocean and the Great Otways National Park in Moggs Creek, about 750 m off the Great Ocean Road.

Hidden away, you wouldn’t even know the campsite was there when travelling from Anglesea to Lorne.

There is no power at Tallawalla, so it is a truly ‘get away from it all’ destination. Whether you camp or sleep in the cabin, your time at Tallawalla will be accompanied by birdsong and the scent of eucalyptus.
