If you love remote and intimate camping, far from the crowds, you’ll love the dramatic coastal setting of Saltwater Creek campground in Ben Boyd National Park, on the far south coast. Not far from Eden, it’s the perfect getaway for nature-loving campers keen to escape the hustle and bustle of the modern world.

Once you’ve set up the tent among the rough barked apple gums, head to the pristine beach for a swim, a surf, or try your hand at fishing. There are several shallow lagoons perfect for the little ones or a spot of paddling. The campsite is a stopover on the famous Light to Light walk so take your hiking boots if you want to explore on foot.

The nearby bush is alive with wildlife all year round. You could see possums, bandicoots, red-necked wallabies, goannas, pythons and lyrebirds. Dolphins are often seen surfing the waves as whales pass by on their annual migration.
