Great camping spot, can get pretty crowded though. Good squid spot. Lots of kayaking. Wind can pick up in an instant. Operating under COVID restrictions with a current limit of 300. Bookings required in advance and prices have increased. $12.50 per adult per night normal, extra on long weekends. $7.50 per child per night. Groups also attract a $10 bond per person, refundable on departure.

Great, simple campground. Large grassy area at the foot of the beach. $12.50 per adult per night (bring cash). Outdoor showers only with basic public toilets. No shops in town, Normanville is one of the closest towns for re-supply. Worth checking out the cave and surrounding headlands. If you’re into snorkelling / scuba diving check out the old pier too.
