Marlay Point Free Camping Site is just in front of Lake Wellington Yacht Club which is approximately 18 kms from Sale on Clydebank Road. Note: The turnoff is easily missed, so keep an eye open and use the GPS coordinates to help you find this great location.
It offers nice grassy areas (just near yacht club), a boat ramp and toilet facilities. Lake Wellington is part of the Gippsland Lakes. Though being such a shallow lake at just 3 metres deep it is quite brownish looking.
The wind was blowing a gale when we camped right on the foreshore of Lake Wellington. I loved being near the water watching the birds, mostly seagulls from inside the warmth and dry of the motorhome.
Beware that Marlay Point is also home to the who hold regular yachting regattas over the summer period especially over the Labour Day Long weekend and no camping is allowed this weekend.
The cooler evening lent itself to a warm curry for dinner, Massaman Curried Chicken, which I will post up next..
