Don’t you love it when a campground is right beside the beach? Depot Beach just north of Batemans Bay, on the south NSW coast is a family favourite.
Our daughter said it was quiet and pretty. They had a lovely picnic on the beach. She said you walked just over a hill and road – a hundred metres or so from the campground to the beach.
Facilities include toilets, showers, electric power, BBQs picnic tables, drinking water. BYO firewood and coins for the shower. The sites are suitable for tents, swags, camper trailers or caravans.
Murramarang National Park is known for having one of the biggest continuous stands of spotted gums and its indigenous history. Evidence of the past include shell middens, tool manufacturing sites and indications of a specialised industry producing bone points and fishing hooks.
