Please note

This is a remote campground, so please make sure you arrive well prepared.

When you’re ready to unplug the mobile phone and truly get away from it all, pack up the tent and load up the canoes for a trip to Johnsons Beach campground on the sandy shores of Boolambayte Lake, in Myall Lakes National Park.

Once you’ve arrived at this remote, tranquil, lakeside spot, either by boat or on foot via Mining Road fire trail / Old Gibber Road fire trail, you’ll be as far as you’d like from the crowds. Pitch your tent and sit back and unwind. Try your hand at fishing, swimming, or taking in the nearby walking tracks, keeping an eye out for the wildflowers in spring that erupt with colour. Birdwatchers will love the abundance of both native and migratory birds.

At night stoke up the campfire and cook up a feast before relaxing under the sparkling velvet blanket of stars. As you doze off to sleep, you might hear the call of the plover echoing across the waters.
