A very quiet forested camp near a lovely beach.

Situated in tall forest 500m from a small cove and behind a rocky, heath covered headland.

Specific sites are reasonably separated by bush. Good shade from tall Silvertop Ash and Red bloodwood with a thin understory of melaleuca and scrub. One site is reserved for overnight camping. Tank water

Wallabies and wombats are common.

There was a shipwreck here in 1837; the 13 survivors had to walk almost to Eden.

There are a few beautiful coastal walks from here, varying from 500m to 6.5km taking in coastal scrub and beaches.
