Free camping at SawPit

This free camp is just 15km from Portland which is one of the western most towns on coastal Victoria.

The actual historic Saw Pit on site

It’s a busy campground, and you can see why, barely off the main road and you feel like you’re miles from everything.

Plenty of room

It is well serviced with a ranger coming past to clean up fire pits etc. We did have any fires whilst here since the fire warnings were a little ambiguous and we though we'd err on caution.

Birds such as kookaburras and the colourful rosellas are plentiful and they come looking for some food, obviously having been fed this way plenty of times before, as did some rather shy wallabies, even a wallaby with a joey in the pouch.

Mamma Wallaby not that you can see the joey very well

We spent a few restful days here. We enjoyed meeting with other RVers and even met up with Hans & his wife who are also members of the Highway Wanderers, which we joined just last year.

A pleasant hour was taken going for a little walk along one of the many bike trails to a whalers’ lookout. There had been a bushfire in the area a few years ago and the black trees standing out against the green of the bracken ferns was just striking.


  1. Nice to stop in a park once in a while to take care of the RV's needs but with scenery like that it's hard not to enjoy the view.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. One can always take advantage of a nice stay to do both work and pleasure
