Killarney Beach Caravan Park

I have beautiful memories as a teenager spending a couple of weeks during summer camped around the football ground at Killarney Beach; you could hear the rolling surf from the campsite and each morning I would gather up my rod, tackle box and bucket and walk out onto the beach and onto one of the rock islands nearby.

On the landward side, I could easily wade out but on the seaward side, it is rather ominously deep and dark blue. As the sparkling sun broke over the distant horizon, washing the beach in golden sunshine, I would get busy catching my breakfast. Then I would wander back to camp with my fishy trophies as people would begin to stir.

Killarney Beach is a cheaper alternative than hotels or motels if anyone wants to rough it. The town of Warrnambool and Port Fairy lie to the right and to the left, so supplies are easily had. The fishing is great and you can certainly try your luck at Yambuk Lake, The Crags, Fitzroy River or the Nelson River or even the estuary at Port Fairy. Usually you can catch Whiting on light tackle or Bream and Mullet.
