Tucked away in the northern outskirts of Sydney is Twin Beaches campground, a remote and peaceful part of Marramarra National Park that’s only accessible by boat. Drop your anchor and pitch your tent by the river for an authentic bush camping experience.

Spend your days fishing, swimming, paddling or boating on the calm waterways. Nearby you’ll find historic Bar Island with its old church ruins and cemetery filled with headstones of European settlers.

If you’re feeling energetic, take the boat upstream on Marramarra Creek to Marramarra Creek campground which is the starting point for the Marramarra Ridge to Smugglers Ridge walking track. It takes you across beautiful sandstone ridgetops down to the creek, where you can reward your efforts with a refreshing swim.

There’s plenty of opportunity for birdwatching at Twin Beaches campground, so don’t forget to pack your binoculars. You’ll see black cockatoos and white-bellied sea eagles soaring above the river. Goannas can also be found wandering through the campground, between the Sydney red gum and sheoak trees.
