John Goodchap visited Portsea on ANZAC Day and took time to have a look around. Earlier we raised the project that Parks Victoria was undertaking to establish a camping area in the vicinity of Jarman Oval.
This link provides an overview of the project – Parks Victoria
Work has now commenced and the following photographs provide an insight to location and progress. John advises that Parks Victoria staff advise that Stage 1 completion is planned for late September this year. This Stage will involve the creation of 34 camping sites with permanent tents on wooden platforms. There will be a mix of two and four person tents.
This last photo show how close to the bay sites will be – located off to the right of the track. This is looking towards the picnic area along Coles Track and the bay. (Check out Google Maps for a street view.) Jarman Oval is off to the left of the photo. See the location map above or the Parks Victoria site for more detail on the actual camp sites.
