Camping right on the beach in a spacious, although (of course) sandy campground.

This campground is broken into two sections (north and south) although both are fairly similar, it does offer a little more separation for those who prefer things quiet.

There are plenty of shaded sites, but of course, being on the coast, things can get a bit windy most of the time.

Being on the coast, this area is ideal for those who like to beach fish, snorkel or just stroll along the beach.

There is some great canoeing in the Wooli River and if you have a tinny, there is a boat ramp just south at the town of Minnie Water. There is 4WD access to the beach from the campground.

A large (separate) Group Camping spot nearby offers online bookings and gated entry. This would be handy for large groups who would like to make sure they are going to get a spot.
