  • The northern and southern parts of the campground are separated by a small depression which becomes a creek in heavy rain.

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

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.

If you’re thinking of camping with a group, be sure to visit the Illaroo group camping area.
