Best for: Going totally wild on a little-visited corner of the state
A short ferry ride from Stony Point on the Mornington Peninsula is secluded French Island National Park – the state’s largest coastal island. This is where you go when you need to recharge in nature, far from the madding crowd. Since there’s just one grocery store on the entire island, guests are advised to pack their own food to cook in the communal kitchen, barbecue and fire pit area. Offering towels, toiletries and all the other essentials, French Island Glamping takes care of the rest, leaving visitors free to explore the island, learn about its fascinating history or go on a wildlife spotting tour with Naturaliste Tours.
