Get the whole family together for a relaxing camping escape on the beautiful central coast of NSW.

Set in the heart of Munmorah State Conservation Area and nestled in bushland, this grassy, landscaped campground has ample space with designated sites for caravans and trailers as well as spots for tent camping. Many sites are shaded by the branches of established trees, and there are covered barbecue areas. The long, sandy stretch of Birdie Beach is just a short walk from the campground – a leisurely walk along the beach is a great start to the day.

Fantastic fishing and surfing spots as well as bushwalks are also close at hand. And if you’re there during the winter months, you might just see whales as they make their way along the coast.
