Red Gum campground is a beautiful riverside camping area, just a short drive from Batemans Bay, or a scenic trip on the river by boat, canoe, or kayak. This back-to-basics campground is perfect for a weekend escape or a day trip away from the holiday crowds.
Find a grassy patch near your car, or wander to the secluded campsites away from the carpark to pitch your tent and really immerse yourself in nature.
Throw a fishing line in the river, take a quick swim, or head off to explore the nearby mangroves and surrounding bush by foot. Or you could paddle your kayak or canoe to explore the nearby shoreline.
If you like birdwatching, don’t forget your binoculars - you’ll find an abundance of waterbirds by the river. In the distance, you might spot a glossy black-cockatoo or a sea eagle.
