The forest meets the ocean at Oaky Beach campground. This isolated campground is set among tall spotted gum forest and burrawangs. You’ll really feel like you’re in the bush but it’s just a short stroll to Oaky Beach.

The road into Oaky Beach is a little more adventurous than Depot or Pretty Beach but you get a far more isolated feel once there. Pitch your tent, explore the surrounding rainforest and settle in by the campfire. As night falls, gaze at the stars from the open grassy area behind the beach.

March to November is great for adventurous walkers and whale spotting. It’s a few hours’ walk to Yellow Rock with vantage points and secluded beaches along the way. Possums and various gliders are common sights in the evenings and if you're lucky you might spot a swamp wallaby or a threatened pied oystercatcher on the beach.

In summer spend your days swimming and snorkelling at the beaches at Oaky, Yellow Rock and North Head.
