The Victorian Government announced today that the Surf Coast is to go into 7-day lockdown effective from 11.59pm on Sunday 19 September 2021. This means that Anglesea Recreation Camp will be closed for the week and unable to deliver our school holiday programs as planned. 

Our team will be in contact with the organisers of each group to discuss bookings and appropriate plans and will continue to provide updates as we know more on this page. We hope to be open for the second week of the holidays and share in the fun with you then! 

Our metropolitan camps, Camp Manyung and Mt Evelyn Recreation Centre, remain closed until further notice.

We are continuing to monitor and review how continuing changes impact our regional campsites and our regional guests. We will be in contact with your camp or community leader to discuss your individual booking and make the appropriate plans as we understand the details.

We are excited as these changes bring us one step closer to our camps being open again and able to welcome all back to our sites soon.


Phillip Island Coastal Discovery Camp

Phillip Island Coastal Discovery Camp is currently preparing for a major redevelopment. The new facility will include a range of modern accommodation and accessible features. We intend to provide inclusive access to this unique coastal area for groups and people of all abilities.

In the interim, the existing facility is not offering accommodation services and community programs at its standard capacity.

We are currently accepting expressions of interest for private small group bookings that are self catered.

Each booking will be negotiated and accepted on a case by case basis.

To submit an expression of interest, please complete the Phillip Island enquiry form.



We understand school and community groups may have heightened concerns about the safety of attending our camps even as COVID-19 restrictions ease.

Please be assured, the health, safety and wellbeing of guests and staff remains our number one priority.

We are taking every precaution recommended by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and are continually reviewing our own health and safety procedures to ensure they meet current guidelines.

Our Camps Managers have developed COVID safety plans specific to their sites. These plans will be adapted to the needs of each group who attend our camps in Term 4 2020.

We will take this approach forward into future terms as Victoria continues its journey towards COVID normal.
