The Depot Beach campground has an office with information about the park, and staff are available most days during holiday periods.

It doesn’t get much more beautiful than the view from Depot Beach. Set on the pristine south coast of NSW, the white - sand beach is enclosed by a majestic spotted gum forest. It’s a small piece of paradise and the perfect place to picnic.

The picnic area is equipped with a couple of tables that sit on top of the grassy stretch behind the sand. They’re set apart from each other so you don’t have to share the view, other than with the kangaroos and goannas that like to bask in the sun nearby.

Be sure to save some time for a swim after lunch, and, on a clear day, it’s a great spot for snorkelling. Or, if you feel like a short stroll, Rock Platform walk, Depot Beach and Depot Beach Rainforest walk both begin at the picnic area.
