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.

Tallawalla was completely destroyed in the Ash Wednesday bushfires but was rebuilt and developed to become a prime camping location for Girl Guides.

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 eucalypt.
