The beautiful Camp Rumbug is located in the majestic hills of South Gippsland, two hours from Melbourne’s CBD and set in 200 acres of glorious temperate rainforest overlooking Wilsons Promontory National Park. Accommodation is comprised of 350 beds in three purpose-built buildings. New investment has resulted in the building of Plane Tree Lodge in 2015, which has en suite rooms, and the newly built Lakeview Lodge, which is a short walk from the main camp (within the grounds) and has stunning views across the lake.
