Set on the western side of Diamond Head, Indian Head campground is a relaxed place to pitch a tent before your explorations of Crowdy Bay National Park begin. When your base camp’s established, it’s time to decide on your first adventure. A couple of the park’s walking tracks leave from the campground, including the scenic Forest walk and the longer Diamond Head Loop walk.

The beach is not far from the campground and is a great place for a spot of beach cricket or football. You might even see some of the park’s birdlife, like jabirus and pied oystercatchers. Of an evening, you can hear the crash of the ocean and if you are lucky, you might see some of the park’s kangaroos at dusk.

Take a virtual tour of Indian Head campground captured with Google Street View Trekker.
