The only campground at the southern end of Crowdy Bay National Park, Crowdy Gap campground is located behind the sand dunes on the edge of Crowdy Bay on the site of an old dairy farm.
Set up camp among the banksias and pink-barked angophoras, inhale the fresh coastal breeze, and unpack your swimmers for a beachside camping holiday. It’s an easy walk through lush rainforest and sand dunes to Crowdy Beach. Spend your days diving into the clear blue waves, fishing, and walking the golden beaches. As the sun sets, gather together and cook up your catch over the barbecue.
A place of significance to the local Birpai Aboriginal People, shell middens are dotted through the dunes, indicating this was an area of plenty for fish, shellfish and wallabies.
