Travelling the east coast in our caravan. In Brisbane we stayed at Caboolture Showgrounds and caught the train into Brisbane. In Sydney we stayed at Wanderest in Richmond (real good camp) and caught train to Sydney.

Staying out of caravan parks, does anyone have any suggestions for Melbourne where we might camp and train it into the city?

Thanks in advance.

There was some discussion on this subject earlier this year, maybe since Easter.

People were inquiring about 'van parks as they were going across to Tassie, and needed somewhere to camp close to ferry terminal.


Seen it all, Done it all.
Can't remember most of it.

Couple of caravan parks in Carrum Downs, south of town, bus ride to train station. Also Frankston - Big 4 - bus to train station.Showgrounds at Berwick - train in town. There are a couple north of the city as well - Braybrook maybe - Melbourne is a great place to visit- will be down there for a couple of weeks Mid October, before taking ferry to Tassy for five months. A lot to do in the city - Eureka Tower is a must!! Victoria Market - Sunday market at St Kilda Esplanade - a boat ride up the Yarra, and always so much happening in the parks and streets in town -

Makes me a bit homesick - but no, not really - love my life on the road, don't think I could live in a house again!!

You will have difficulty finding any free or very cheap camps within reach of Melbourne. We have done verywell in Bendigo for very reasonable priced caravan parks. There is a fast train and a freeway linking Bendigo and other towns on that route to the city of Melbourne. Bendigo is a great town in its own right with lots to see. You could find something that suits along that way. Lynne

Ashley Gardens @ Braybrook has a bus (route 220) right outside the door that takes you into the city via Victoria Markets and Footscray shops (very multicultural.) It's a bit pricey but very nice and handy to the city.
