If you yearn for a bush retreat to get you back to basics, try secluded Joes Cove campground on the shores of Two Mile Lake, in Myall Lakes National Park. Only accessible by boat or walking track, you and a couple of friends can get away from it all in your own natural hideaway.
Arriving at this tranquil spot, take in the serene water views across the lake; you might be able to make out Two Mile Sands. With only two campsites, your noisy neighbours are most likely to be the flourishing local and migratory birdlife that this park protects. A perfect opportunity for birdwatching, look for white egrets and the musk duck with its distinctive throat pouch.
At night, settle in for an evening meal, while serenaded by the local wildlife. You might even hear the tell-tale call of the plover calling across the water.
