Have there been any issues with cars getting broken into?


I have heard of one car, but that's it. Mine was fine. Plenty of people always coming & going. by Daina B.

Beautiful clean grassy flat campsite right at the beach - listen to the waves crash all night. Bins & drop toilet on site. No tap or drinking water. 30min hike in (downhill on way in, uphill way back). Parking free - sign says 4WD but my Toyota echo made it

Great remote campsite. You can drive and park your vehicle on Tallow Beach Trail. It is an unsealed road with some large dips/mounds so 2wd vehicles will need to take it slow to ensure they don’t scrape. The walk from the parking area to the campsite is about 1.5km down a very steep hill. This is okay waking in, but remember you need to cary everything you bring in back out (up the steep hill). The limited spaces at this site (only 6) is great as you typically have the beach to yourself. You do need to book well in advance of your trip to secure a space. Plenty of wildlife and some great walks around as well.

Bit of a walk to get there (so pack light) but well worth the trip! We went on a Friday night and had the whole beach to ourselves :)
