"We love this pretty creekside spot where everyone can have a relaxing hoilday – the kids paddle in the water while we fish."

Station Creek campground is a peaceful campground conveniently situated on Station Creek estuary, offering superb fishing, canoeing and swimming. It’s a gentle 600m stroll to the local beach, following a lovely walking track lined with scribbly gum and corkwood trees.

The campground is particularly popular with families. It offers a safe environment where kids can go swimming while the grown-ups fish or simply relax in the shade, nearby.

Keep your eyes open for the striking brolga around the water’s edge. Also known as the Australian crane, it’s a tall, upright wetland bird with a small head, long beak, slender neck and long legs often seen hunting in shallow waters. If you’re really lucky, you might even spot one of the emus that visit the area now and again throughout the year.
