Wildlife and beach camp: Red Cliff Campground, New South Wales

For a budget priced beach camp with million dollar views, travel to Red Cliff at Yuraygir National Park in northern New South Wales. Not only do you have the waves at your doorstep, the kangaroos love it, too!  A popular surfing destination, it is only 5 km from Brooms Head and their “Bowlo” , known for yummy Chinese meals.  The whole area is super family friendly, and a favourite for many! Yuraygir extends from south of Yamba, around the laid back villages of Wooli and Minnie Water (great fishing!) all the way to Red Rock. In fact, the Clarence Valley

Banksia Bluff Campground, Cape Conran Coastal Park VIC

Beautiful Banksia Bluff Campground, Cape Conran National Park, Victoria

Banksia Bluff Campground, Cape Conran Coastal Park VIC We loved exploring Cape Conran National Park in Victoria’s East Gippsland region. Banksia Bluff is one of those rare PARKS campgrounds where dogs are allowed. In fact, there is a mixture of unpowered dog friendly and non-dog friendly campsites. Dogs must be on a lead. The popular campground has 135 sites spread out over a kilometre, set amongst mahogany gum and banksia woodland. Campfires are permitted on selected sites and must be within a fire ring. Flushing toilets and an outdoor cold shower is available. All sites have some shade and are generally large. Toilets are

CAMPS at Bald Rock Campground, New South Wales

National Park must stay: Bald Rock Campground, New South Wales

We are definitely coming back to this wonderful spot! You can camp under the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest granite rock! Sites at Bald Rock Campground have plenty of vegetation and privacy, we loved the granite surrounds. Bald Rock was neutral ground, trade route and a meeting place for three of the Aboriginal nations of the area: the Jukambal, Bundgalung and Kamilleroi. The campground would be a wonderful location for groups. There is a sheltered area, but each site had picnic tables – the site we stopped at had a huge one. The firepits were very functional with BBQ plates that rotated.
