Bunga Summit

5 sites · RVs, Tents25 acres · Bermagui, NSW
Beautiful Coastal farmland near to Mimosa Rocks National Parks. Easy to access. Close to stunning townships of Bermagui just 15mins north and Tathra 30mins south. Observe an abundance of wildlife - spot an eagle, kangaroo, wallaby, possum, goanna, wombat or whale! Surf or swim any of the amazing beaches or lagoons -Bunga, Hidden Valley, Arraganuu, Bithry, Cuttagee, Camel Rock, Horseshoe Bay or Blue Pool. Walk the dog at Beares beach in Bermagui or Cuttagee beach, 10mins drive north. This is an incredible coastline to explore. Enjoy local fresh produce from Bermagui farmers market in summer on Thursday afternoons; Saturday market at Honorbread courtyard; fresh seafood either catch yourself or purchase from Bermagui Fishermans Wharf. Please note there are 5 beehives approximately 20metres to the east of the shed. This is not a camping area. Please keep to the western side of the shed for camping. Beware, bees do not like dogs and will sting them if the dogs go up close to the hives. There is a little shed on this patch of land and campers have access to an undercover area off the side of the shed plus half of the inside area of the shed not being used for storage. There is a rainwater tank and a compost toilet at the back of the shed. To locate when heading south on Tathra -Bermagui Rd , Turn left into Hergenhans Rd which is approx 14km south of Bermagui, then left into Wrens Rd (Goalen N Rd on google maps) , follow Wrens Rd about 800m and you'll see a gateway on your right with Hipcamp sign (Bunga Summit). It is opposite gateway on left with Lot 3 sign. The next gate is padlocked where the shed and beehives are. Please note the 1st gate on the right on Wrens Rd with the hipcamp sign and No.2 written on post is for Bunga Surf Shack which is on a separate property. To access Bunga Beach, continue along Wrens Rd through neighbouring properties. Please note this road is in poor condition with deep ruts and whilst many 2wd cars do make it down to the beach, I would recommend a 4wd or a car with good clearance. This is National Park so you can't have dogs here. To access Back Bunga Beach continue along Hergenhans Rd and left onto O'sheas Rd which is a much smoother road, taking you through neighbouring properties and ending at Mimosa Rocks National Park. For dog walking beaches head to Cuttagee just 10mins north towards Bermagui, or Beares Beach in Bermagui. For injured wildlife or any wombats with mange around the campsite please phone my neighbour Sara as she volunteers for Wildlife Rescue South Coast. Sara 0435 614 243 Please be respectful of neighbours and do not fly drones over private property.

Camping near Tathra with a private bathroom guide

Overview

Set on the shores of Boulder Bay in the south coast, Tathra promises campers prime coastal views, sandy beaches, and excellent fishing. This seaside town may be on the smaller side, but the abundance of natural activities and national parks make it a haven for camping. Tathra beachside accommodations vary from rustic campsites for motorhomes to glamping in cosy cabins and safari tents. After a good night’s sleep, zip across the bridge to Mimosa Rocks National Park to scuba dive to shipwrecks and birdwatch along the shoreline before jetting off to Bournda National Park. Spend the day here trekking along the coastline while watching for more local bird species. Beowa National Park highlights even more wildlife, with incredible whale watching from a historical lighthouse.

Where to go

Mimosa Rocks National Park

Just across Bega River sits Mimosa Rocks National Park, only a 10-minute drive from Tathra. Find holiday parks for tents, camper trailers, and caravans in the area with on-site amenities like picnic tables, BBQ facilities, and toilets. Avid divers can wake up and scuba dive to the Paddle Steamer Mimosa, a shipwreck that lays just off the coast, while beginners can swim, snorkel, and fish in Moon Bay or Nelson Lagoon. Take in the picturesque views from a variety of different headlands, and watch for waterfowl along the shoreline year-round.

Bournda National Park

Found 15 minutes south of Tathra, Bournda National Park abounds with outdoor activities. Kayak the Bournda Lagoon or the waters of Wallagoot Lake before sauntering down Sandy Creek loop track, then keep an eye on the trees for native bird species while walking. Bournda campgrounds welcome swags, tents, camper trailers, and campervans with a range of facilities and amenity blocks with flush toilets, showers, and BBQ areas.

Beowa National Park

The stunning rocky coastline of Beowa National Park sits an hour and a half from Tathra. Take on Boyds Tower walking track, a favourite for beginners, or conquer the multi-day Light to Light walk for experts. History buffs can check out Green Cape Lighthouse, where wildlife watchers can also scan the seas for migrating whales. Campgrounds in the park offer basic amenities, but there are more luxurious accommodations available too. Take a break from the tent and get pampered in a bunkhouse or heated cottage vacation rental with bathrooms, fully equipped kitchens, and fresh linens.

When to go

Every season in Tathra offers something special, which makes it a first-rate choice for year-round camping trips. Feathered friends flock to Mimosa Rocks National Park throughout the year, and if whale watching is top priority, plan to visit in spring between September and November. The hot and humid summers that last from December until March are an ideal time for beach lounging and exploring the waterways in Bournda National Park. Campgrounds will be at peak capacity in summer, so plan ahead and reserve a pitch when possible.
