Only an hour’s drive from Melbourne and located at the top of the Mornington Peninsula, Western Port Harbour Caravan Park was established during the 1990’s. After a colourful past as the Yaringa Caravan Park, it was virtually rebuilt. This means that most of the park’s facilities are modern, comprehensive and well planned. The park’s location and its bushland setting appeal to the more mature aged resident and traveller and so it evolved with that theme in mind. A modern spacious amenities block, camp kitchen and grassed BBQ area are now all features of the park. These are all conveniently located close to our tourist sites. With about 50 sites in the park, most of our guests have chosen to make this their home. If it’s a great place to live, it is even better to visit.
The park is situated on 5 acres of land in a semi rural environment. The quiet country atmosphere is one of the big attractions. The park is also home to many of the birds in the area and others make their daily visits. Amongst these are Rosellas, Galahs, Minors, Magpies, Crested Pigeons, Owls, Ducks and Ibis. The birds are attracted by the many trees in the park and our man made wetlands but you can find many more in the coastal scrub nearby. It is this relaxed feeling about the place that has made it so appealing to the many older residents who have chosen to live or holiday here.
One of the attractions of the park is that it is away from the mainstream being located around 8 to 10 minutes drive from the nearby towns of Somerville, Tyabb and Pearcedale. It is nice to get away but, it can be inconvenient when you run out of something, so the park has a small kiosk stocking milk, eggs, ice, and a wide range of grocery items as well as a few luxuries like cappuccino, soft drinks, ice-creams and chocolates.
