“We spent our days surfing in the morning, discovering secluded swimming spots in the afternoon and watching the kangaroos as the sun went down. It doesn’t get much better than that.”
Spanning 44km of dramatic coastline, Murramarang National Park is the ultimate spot to soak up some sun and explore the cliffs, headlands and pristine beaches of the NSW south coast. Be sure to pack your swimmers to hit the surf, your binoculars to spot peregrine falcons and sea eagles that soar high above the cliffs and your fishing rod to catch your dinner.
This is one of the rare spots in Australia where the spotted gums grow right down to the ocean, offering plenty of shade in the warmer months and a stunning backdrop for a nature escape all year round.
It's a great place to spend the day and, if you'd like to stay longer, there is a choice of campgrounds, including caravan and motorhome sites and a range of facilities. If you don't feel like camping, you can book yourself into park accommodation at the Depot Beach cabins or Pretty Beach cabins.
Murramarang National Park, near Batemans Bay, is a great place to go whale watching during the annual whale migration which takes place from June to November each year. Find the perfect vantage point and plan your next coastal adventure at the Wild About Whales website.
