Pebbly Beach campground - Yuraygir National Park

“Forget fancy hotel rooms – here you get oceanfront accommodation sheltered by picturesque headlands. I can’t think of anything more relaxing.”

Pebbly Beach campground sits by a small bay north of Station Creek Beach. Getting to this remote campground is as much an adventure as staying there – you’ll need to drive along the beach and cross a saltwater estuary at low tide.

Once you’re there, the fun really begins. Settle into a spacious campsite, just metres from the she-oak lined shore, then start exploring. You’ll find great walking tracks in the area, and the nearby headlands are excellent for whale watching.

True to its name, the beach features ‘pebbly’, gravel-like sand and is a fantastic place for swimming and fishing. What are you waiting for?
