Read more about Munmorah State Conservation Area

Munmorah State Conservation Area is a park for all seasons. Beautiful craggy coastlines, tranquil bays, and dazzling ocean views make this a place to return to time and again.

Bushwalking, camping, fishing, surfing and swimming are just some of the activities you can enjoy at Munmorah. Frazer beach is only patrolled during Christmas and Easter school holidays though so please be cautious when swimming there as the surf can be unpredictable.

You might like to bring your binoculars to spot passing whales in winter and keep an eye out for some of the incredible bird species that call this park home. You might see a bar-shouldered dove in the coastal dunes or the southern emu wren on the low coastal heaths.

Part of the Sydney Basin, Munmorah State Conservation Area illustrates the impressive geology of the region. The views are spectacular and it's no wonder, they’ve been millions of years in the making.


Whale watching top spots

NSW national parks have the best vantage points to see whales during their annual migration, which takes place from May to November. Plan your next coastal adventure.
