Wake up to the sound of birds in the trees and back to basics at this unspoilt campground nestled amongst the trees.  It’s a short 250m walk from the carpark to the campground, making it feel even more removed from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Set up camp then head off to explore the surrounding beauty.  Take a short walk to the nearby beach and admire scenic views to the north along the coastline to Crampton Island.  Enjoy swimming in these pristine waters and looking for shells on the sandy shore.  Try your luck fishing from the beach then cook up your catch on the campfire.

Or just sit back, relax and take in the scenery from your campground.  In spring you’ll be surrounded by beautiful and rare wildflowers. There are also plenty of birdwatching opportunities in the area and you might spot some passing wallabies.
