The spacious Illaroo campground is split in two parts – north and south – and offers 60 campsites just a hop, skip and a jump from the beach.

Arrive early to nab a shady caravan site overlooking the Pacific Ocean and coastline. Lovely walks, including the Angophora Grove walk, are nearby and the beach offers an endless array of options – from fishing to swimming to snorkelling. If you’re into canoeing try the nearby and stunning Wooli River and fishing boats can be launched from Minnie Water. In fact, it’s almost too easy to while away your days in this idyllic spot – you’ll never want to leave.

Wooli and Grafton are easily accessible if you find you need supplies while camping in this remote area.
