Boat or walk in campground on the edge of the lake, which offers scenic views, birdwatching and paddling in Myall Lakes National Park.
If you’re ready for a real adventure surrounded by nature, grab your canoe and head for Shelly Beach campground. This idyllic lakeside camping spot, only accessed by boat or foot, overlooks one of Australia’s largest protected wetlands in Myall Lakes National Park.
When you pull up, you’ll know that you’ve arrived somewhere special. Pitch your tent on the edge of Myall Lake and gaze across the expanse to McGraths Island. Indulge in a spot of birdwatching, as white faced herons and darters are often seen fishing in these waters. If you’re after a walk, join the Mining Road fire trail / Old Gibber Road fire trail.
At night, after a campfire barbecue, grab the torch and check out the local wildlife such as sugar gliders and tiger quolls. When it’s time to call it a night, fall asleep to the gentle sounds of the bush.
