On a recent hike on the Great Ocean Walk we camped at Blanket Bay and, as usual, it was a fantastic place to visit. I would recommend it even as just a day trip.
What all the guide books fail to mention is the number of koalas here. I’ve seen several every time I’ve been here and if you ever wanted to get a picture of a koala with a gorgeous beach in the background I reckon that you’d have a good chance here.
Blanket bay is a pretty bay facing to the South East, partly protected by reefs. There are toilet, picnic and camping facilities with limited access for camper trailers but no access for caravans.
You can get there by turning off the Great Ocean Road on to the Cape Otway Road. Blanket Bay Road is off to the left about 10 km from the Great Ocean Road (watch for koalas in the trees all of the way along this road). About 1 km along you pass through a gate which may be locked if conditions are very wet. It is about another 5 km to the campsite. Blanket Bay Road is a mix of sand and gravel which ordinary cars can traffic most of the year.
Note: the campsites at Blanket Bay are booked through a ballot system during summer and over the Easter holiday period, and fees apply during this time. Contact Parks Victoria for info.
The cache is a black 400 ml sistema with a few swaps included.
