Finding camps along the New South Wales Pacific Coast

One of the frequent queries we receive is why aren’t there free camps along the Pacific Highway? Historically, the rest areas allowed free overnight stays.

Corindi River and the beaches surround Reflections Holiday Park Red Rock.  After lunch in the picnic area (watching kayakers), we swam at Little Beach, perfect for families at this sheltered cove.  There was even a bit of shade on the sand when we visited from the Pandanus trees. Beware of tidal channels here. Note:
