Hungry Gate campground is located at the southern end of Hat Head National Park. The area has an open, spacious feel but is protected from the elements by sand dunes and surrounded by thick vegetation. You can bring your tent or camper trailer to Hungry Gate, which sits 30 kilometres north east of Kempsey and 32 kilometres south of Nambucca Heads.
Take time to admire the established fig trees and paperbarks behind the dunes and you'll be rewarded they're home to a variety of birdlife. Brahminy kites often fly over the beach, just a 10 minute walk away. The park's kangaroos are fond of the campground and graze there regularly. You'll also see little bent winged bats and well-fed goannas.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
