If you’re into birdwatching, you’ll be in your element at White Tree Bay campground and picnic area. Located on the eastern shore of Bombah Broadwater, it’s only a short drive north of Newcastle and a great place to camp. Pitch your tent or park the caravan in a clearing fringed with majestic paperbarks, then immerse yourself in the watery wonderland of the Myall Lakes National Park.

From the comfort of your temporary park home, you’ll hear the unmistakable call of the yellow-tailed black cockatoo or the musical currawong. The nearby Bombah Broadwater attracts huge numbers of migratory birds and you might see gannets diving for fish. It’s about 1.5km to Mungo Beach, and the long Old Gibber Road/Mining Road fire trail is perfect for mountain biking and hiking.

As the sun goes down, head to White Tree Bay picnic area right on the lake, cook up a barbecue meal, sit back and enjoy the symphony of birdsong at sunset.
