Bookings

Bookings cannot be made for this campground. Availability is on a first come, first served basis.

For a relaxing holiday spent on or beside the tranquil waters of Bombah Broadwater in Myall Lakes National Park, make sure you visit The Wells campground. It’s a perfect spot for a family holiday with space for caravans or tents.

The still waters make it ideal for canoeing, paddling, and motor boating. You can even bring a trailer sailer for a day on the lakes. The kids will love the shallow waters for swimming and the brackish water is good for fishing.

Nestled among the she-oaks on the eastern shores, this delightful spot is one of the few places you can have a campfire. So, at the end of a brilliant day, stoke up the fire and barbecue your catch.

When the evening settles in, enjoy the bush symphony under a blanket of stars. Tumble into your sleeping bag with the contented feeling that you can wake up and do it all over again.
