This Caravan Park is situated on Mersey Bluff itself.

It has great views over Bass Strait, and you can see the ferry coming and going, and it is quite convenient to other attractions.

The Caravan Park has campsites, powered sites, on site vans, and park cabins.
It also has a kiosk, barbeque facilities, camp kitchen, laundry, playground and beach

The park was well kept, with clean amenities.
It can get very windy here as you are right on the Ocean front.

Camping overlooking the ocean

Facilities were good: the usual camp kitchen, laundry, amenities blocks all sufficient, etc.
Cost was reasonable ($7 per person per night, unpowered site fee)

Unique Quality: What I really enjoyed about this park was that once again, having a non powered tent site meant being pushed down the very back of the park....right on top of the grassy cliffs, scrubby trees being the only buffer between us and the ocean winds.
And an extra special surprise we got when we drove back to our tent site after dinner, once all was dark, was to see some small grey almost rabbit like creatures with mouse like tails and striped darker grey behinds running around near our tent, illuminated and somewhat frozen by our car headlights.
When we got back home we looked them up in an Animal book and discovered them to be Eastern Barred Bandicoots, extremely endangered on the Australian mainland, and I'm sure seldom seen elsewhere too, unless you happen to be at the right place at the right time, as we were.

Directions: Follow the coast around a little from the centre of Devonport.
