Camping in National Parks
Bookings are now required for all campgrounds and campsites in NSW national parks, including those without camping fees. This is to manage numbers in each location to support social distancing. Make an online booking or check the NPWS COVID-19 update page for more information.
National parks and conservation areas along the spectacular NSW coast offer wonderful places to stay. From beachside camping to woodland cabins, you can even pitch a tent on an island and stay in some of the world’s oldest protected wilderness.
Awaken to breathtaking ocean views, spot whales migrating, and encounter kangaroos, wallabies and a colourful array of native birds. In beautiful waters, you’ll find plenty of fun things to do including swimming, surfing, fishing, snorkelling and diving.
Camp right on the water’s edge at Korsmans Landing campground and picnic area in Myall Lakes National Park or get away from it all on Broughton Island, which has only five campsites – so you’ll almost have the place to yourself!
In Bouddi National Park is Little Beach Campground, a small site surrounded by rainforest right on the beach. Another great beachside camping spot is Pebbly Beach campground in Murramarang National Park, where you’re likely to meet the resident kangaroos.
Cabins and huts
In Batemans Bay, fall asleep to the sounds of rustling gum leaves and waves lapping the shore at Depot Beach cabins. In Ben Boyd National Park spend the night in Telegraph Station Bunkhouse or sleep in the Swamp House surrounded by coastal rainforest and only 300 metres from the beach at Woody Head.
