Jean & Johns Bynoe Stopover

Affordable and family-friendly, this welcoming site has spacious grassy sites amongst the native bush. The kids may even be able to feed the chooks or wandering wallabies, and the adults can enjoy a ‘happy hour’ on the deck at 4pm for a chinwag! No pets.

Bush camping with a bit more; power is available at one of the two ensuite sites, but both have showers that lookout to the bush and flushing toilets. Only 2-3 kms from the picturesque beach and 5 kms from the boat ramp.

 It is clear that this site has been designed for true campers; you can see from Shane’s 2.5 laps experience going way back to Camps 3! Quote “Our bible an me ol ute we done 2.5 laps in.”

Very close to Wagait Beach, this exclusive site has a fantastic undercover area, toilet, water and power. Gated for your safety and a convenience store nearby for the essentials. No pets.

Dundee Beach Holiday Park

A pet-friendly caravan park right on Dundee Beach, with a recently upgraded pool, luxury gardens and modern amenities. Close to The Lodge of Dundee which is the main social hub of the area and provider of essentials 7 days a week.

Best time for Barramundi fishing? Local fishing businesses say that the build-up time between October and December are good opportunities, but between March and May (Run-off) is unquestionably the best time to catch a barra. Less opportunities in the dry season between the end of May and September.
