Set up camp surrounded by subtropical rainforest and coastal heath and get ready to explore beautiful Killalea Regional Park, a coastal reserve between Shellharbour and Kiama. 

Spend your days surfing, fishing and swimming. Killalea campground is close to popular surf spots The Farm and Mystics Beach, also known as Minnamurra Beach. There’s also nearby Minnamura River to explore.

Feel like venturing further afield? Head to the hills to see waterfalls and explore rainforest along Minnamurra Falls walk, or soak up stunning coastal views along Griffiths walking track.

Wildlife lovers will find plenty to see. Rare and endangered birds like the Australian bittern and pied oystercatcher can be spotted at the freshwater lagoon and beaches. At night, as many as 10 species of bats flit amongst the trees. Stay during the cooler months for a chance to see migrating whales
