Wombat Hollow

2 sites · RVs, Tents100 acres · Budgong, NSW
100 acres of secluded paradise with a kilometer of free flowing pebbled creek. Bound on two sides by the craggy escarpments of the Budgong and Morton National Parks there is ample grassland to give a feeling of space yet an abundance of trees to wander through as you engage with the tame wildlife and magnificent birdlife. Bring your mountain bike, fishing rod, swimmers, hiking boots, climbing gear, horse riding gear, or tennis racquet, and leave the kids in the play area while you sit by the creek and listen to the water tumbling through the rocks. If you are as intrigued by rare animals as we are, then this is the place for you. 63 Bird species, 24 mammals, 16 reptiles, and 12 amphibians have been sighted in the area (Clarke 2012) and this includes many rare and endangered species including the Brush-tailed rock wallaby, Giant burrowing frog, Gang-gang cockatoo, Glossy black-cockatoo, Koala, Little Lorikeet, Platypus and the Yellow-bellied glider. We only have two campsites at present, so you will be guaranteed peace and privacy. However, due to the demand for that site and that all people who have stayed have loved the experience, I am going to open up a few more sites over the course of 2024. You will always however have lots of space and privacy. Please note, that your group must be self-contained, with their own camp toilet, however fresh drinking water is available. Access is into a valley on a well maintained unsealed road and there are some minor causeways making it unsuitable for busses. An ordinary sedan will do for Billabong site but you will need some power for towing and a 4x4 to tow out in any rain. Riverbend site is only suitable for 4x4's and off-road camp trailers. You are a 40 minute drive from the sea (try the Shoalhaven 100 beach challenge https://www.shoalhaven.com/100-beach-challenge/ ) and just 15km from the historical town of Kangaroo Valley with its myriad of water activities, golf, wine estates, and quaint shopping. ttps://visitkangaroovalley.com.au/see-and-do/ Our neighbor offers horse riding experiences that are absolutely amazing.

Berry & Beach

9 sites · Tents7 acres · Far Meadow, NSW
Amazing location so close to everything the beautiful Shoalhaven has to offer: beaches, wineries, hiking, kayaking, and more! A 5-minute drive to beautiful Berry town, 5-minute drive to Seven Mile Beach/Shoalhaven Heads (with an amazing off-leash dog area), and 15 minutes to Gerroa/Gerringong. 25-minute drive to Kangaroo Valley. 45-minute drive to Jervis Bay. Lovely forested area adjacent to our house, on acreage with views over paddocks and Coolangatta Mountain (Cullunghutti) in the distance. At the moment we have sheep and a couple of miniature horses!  We purposefully only allow a few tents / limited numbers to keep things quiet and peaceful. Please note that although the suggested camp area is adjacent to our house, there are trees in between and we will be sure to respect your peace and privacy. Each booking/site is for one tent only. PLEASE NOTE: the site is not suitable for campervans, caravans, roof tents or RVs. There is a luxury shared bathroom/shower (please do not flush anything other than toilet paper). There are two designated campfire spots, one is communal with some seating and one more private (first in best dressed!). There is generally kindling around but you will need to bring your own big bits of wood. No other fires are permitted. We request that everyone keeps the noise down / no amplified music after 10pm. (Before 10pm, please make sure your music isn't interfering with the ambience of other campers). This isn't a party place and people come to relax, enjoy nature and a bit of peace and quiet. Our preference is for cars to park in the carpark area to keep the views and vibes nice for everyone. The camp area is only a short 30 second walk to where you can set up your tent. It is fine to drive to unload if you have access (i.e. no tents already in the way) and there hasn't bee recent rain (as you could get bogged or ruin the grass) but then please promptly park your car back in carpark. All rubbish/recycling to be taken with you. Please read the rules of the property. Dogs are allowed off leash if well behaved and will stay in the vicinity of your tent. They are not to disturb other campers, otherwise they need to be restrained at all times. Dog poo to be picked up immediately. Please also be aware that this is a farm with fenced dams and inherent risks. While children regularly stay without issues, it's important to remain cautious and mindful of these risks. Fire safety: Do -Ensure fires are currently allowed -Check to see if fires are currently prohibited for any reason. -Sparks can fly! Make sure they stay away from dry brush and that your fire is contained. -Fully extinguish the fire with water. Use water until the hissing stops, and feel a few inches above the ashes to make sure they are cool. (There is a tap / bucket in the corner, and a shovel generally around - ask if you cant find any of these things). Don’t -Leave the fire unattended. A gust of wind could cause your fire to get out of control. Being attentive is key! -Use flammable liquids. Lighter fluid can cause a fire to dangerously flare up and get out of hand. -Build a large fire. Your fire should always be under control and easy to extinguish at any time. Thanks for being careful. Enjoy!

Dog-friendly camping near Bendalong guide

Overview

Positioned on the southern coast of New South Wales, Bendalong tempts campers to stay with its beaches and the chance to interact with local stingrays. This small, sleepy town offers fully-equipped holiday cottages with ocean views, air-conditioned cabins featuring TVs, and powered campsites with private ensuite bathroom facilities so any type of camper can call the town home. After relaxing in Bendalong, take off into nature at Booderee National Park, Morton National Park, and Murramarang National Park, all within two hours away. Each area provides accommodations that range from rustic to lavish as well as easy access to walking trails, aquatic activities, and gorgeous scenery.

Where to go

Booderee National Park

Sitting next to Jervis Bay, Booderee National Park is full of stunning coastal scenery only 30 minutes from Bendalong. It’s a top spot for swimming, fishing, boating, and sightseeing—the historic Cape St. George Lighthouse offers panoramic views for spotting migrating whales. Head to Murrays Beach for soft white sand and crystal-clear water filled with lively marine animals—a scuba diver's dream. Several on-site campgrounds offer a mix of walk-in and drive-in campsites, with some featuring power hookups. Amenities like hot showers, flush toilets, drinking water, and sheltered BBQ areas are also available. 

Morton National Park

Just over an hour inland, Morton National Park boasts beautiful waterfalls, rainforest walking tracks, and over a dozen scenic lookouts. Campgrounds here have plenty of room for tents, caravans, and motorhomes. While the campsites are unpowered, comforts like drinking water, toilets, showers, picnic tables, and boat ramps prioritise convenience. Campers can also hop on the bike to explore the Bundanoon cycling route, saunter down an elevated boardwalk to view Fitzroy Falls, or slip the kayak into Kangaroo River.

Murramarang National Park

With 42 kilometres of coastline, Murramarang National Park is worthy of a visit on a NSW camping trip. It features a beachfront holiday resort, fully-equipped vacation houses with outdoor lounge furniture and effortless beach access, private cabins with bunk beds and bathrooms, and a range of campgrounds for tents and caravans. After finding a spot to sleep, spend the day swimming, fishing, or soaking up the sun at Depot Beach. Then head up to Point Upright lookout for views of Durras Lake and the surrounding forest.

When to go

Bendalong is easily enjoyed year-round, but certain seasons offer special perks. While winters are cooler, migrating whales can be spotted in June and early July from Booderee National Park’s coastline. It’s also mating season for lyrebirds, so watch for their charming courting dances in Murramarang National Park. The wildflowers in spring also bring beautiful colour to the landscape.
