It’s great value for money. Very basic camping, nothing fancy. We stopped on a road trip heading north — it was great for a quick stay. There is a nice walk to an empty beach with beautiful views. The stars are night we’re unbelievable. If you’re looking for a simple/quick stay over night this is a good stop.

Had breakfast with the Roos and enjoyed the quietness of the place. Close to the beach. Toilets, no showers. Big spots.

Don't forget your bushman's spray for sandflies etc. Beautiful ocean, pit toilets, range of sizes for camp spots.

    They say life is better around the campfire. And we could not agree more.  Over the years due to increase fire risk it's become a challenge to find great campsites that allow you to have a fire by your tent.  Please be a responsible Aircamper and brush up on your fire safety knowledge.
