A farm beside the remote, attractive Wallagaraugh estuary, converted into a bushland caravan park.
Cabins, terraced sites with power (4hrs) and some unpowered sites along the estuary. No laundry. Tank water. Shelter.
The terraced sites are grassed but with no shade. The river-side sites lack grass but have good shade from tall River Peppermint and Manna Gum.
Some scattered wattle and melaleuca shrubs.
Good fishing (Flathead, Bream, Perch & Bass).
Surrounded by dry sclerophyll forest. Kookaburras, wrens, magpies and, of course, waterbirds are common.
A very attractive outlook offset by the dusty road in and the cost ($7.50 per adult/night)
Thanks to Al for the following updates.
Great little 'caravan' & camping area, tucked away along dirt track. Caravans may have trouble navigating the area during wet weather.
The property owners are very friendly. (was old farm land that the owners have decided to run a small campground from)
Fish are always biting.
Toilet & Shower facilities. Also small amount of time in evening they allow people to run power - no extra charge, we were set up for bush camping so didn't require this.
Campfires are permitted but bring your own wood.
Dogs are allowed - although we didn't take ours, please be warned that there are wild dogs in the area, one did walk past our camp site.
It was a great place to stop for a couple of night before heading north - it's not quite a bush camp and not quite a caravan park.
$7.50 per adult/night (2002)
