Camp Seabird

1 site · Lodging1 acre · Coasters Retreat, NSW
Welcome to Camp Seabird, a little timber seaside cottage to retreat to after a day of wandering. Lovingly crafted it is perfect haven to unplug from regular life, relax and enjoy sand, sea and sky. This cottage is all yours, we do have a couple of friendly neighbours who will leave you completely in peace or guide you to secret water spots and private bush trails. A place where it feels like time has stood still we are an excellent couples retreat about an hours drive from Sydney CBD. We are not modern and citified... our guests love the thoughtful simplicity of Camp Seabird. We have everything you could possibly need for a spectacular break in particular our bakers joy of a kitchen. We are clean, stylish and oozing with storytelling charm. Arriving here is the first part of your adventure - an old school timber ferry across beautiful Pittwater, a hike through Ku-Ring-Gai or arrive by kayak or boat (yes you have a tie up spot). Camp Seabird is perched right on the banks of the bay. Cool off in aqua waters, comb the beach for natural treasures, or, if you love deep salty swims, then a leap from the jetty and a short swim back to shore is wonderful. Curling up inside with a book from the curated library always ranks high on the “things to do when not doing anything” list. The front door is old school glass, lovely to view sunsets, wallabies and water views from... our back door is barn style, allowing a whispering breeze to flow through. There is no television. We have bush views out every window and wifi if you need. Our games cupboard is specifically designed to provide joyful ways to connect and our hammock, house kayaks and SUP the perfect ways to unwind and explore. Of course, as we are part of Ku-ring-gai National park, trail walking is plentiful. Now that we are in Autumn we are opening winter bookings - so cosy to be by the fireplace indoors and festooned fire pit out... our six cotton and linen draped beds with a variety of pillows envelop you whilst you escape from “real life”. The dining room window seat is our favourite way to start a day with a warm morning drink in tree dappled sunshine. Access to Camp Seabird is via national parks or Palm Beach Ferries or water taxi - both run from Palm Beach across to Bonnie Doon Wharf. Main house and laundry for guest use, two patio areas and a front and back garden. We can also give access to our bunk room to the rear of the main cottage with the second toilet and shower just opposite in the courtyard (external to the main cottage and part of the additional guest charges).

Gondwana Retreat

5 sites · Tents4 acres · Green Point, NSW
My name is Jason and I am responsible for caring and creating this space.Gondwana Retreat is sacred land. It is sacred to the original people as two rivers meet here which was auspicious, and sacred to me and all that visit. The Aboriginal people used to live and commune here. And now it seems a place where people like to be, and Rest and Rejuvenation - even healing happens here.Since moving here myself in 2014 it has been a place of transformation and change. The land itself was abandoned with rubbish and weeds everywhere when I arrived and with a bit of hard work, some patience and care it has become a place of beauty. It has been returned to much more of its natural and native state. This process of positive change has created a healing in the environment and for myself, and visitors express this magic in the air.Nowadays we are offering meditation, yoga, and therapeutic types of practices in the main home that the land and campsite is a part of. Campers are welcome to join and this really makes staying here an opportunity for exploring these practices if you choose.Be good to share the land and we welcome all to Gondwana retreat!

Camping near Umina with surfing guide

Overview

A popular family camping spot with easy access to beautiful beaches, Umina is a village on New South WalesCentral Coast, just north of Sydney. Campers in tents, caravans, and campervans can all find plenty of options around here, at campgrounds with all the modern facilities, or very few, depending on how off-the-beaten-path you want to get. Holiday parks around Umina offer swimming pools, playgrounds for kids, and beach access, and everything from unpowered tent sites through to villas and cabins. The nearby Bouddi National Park and Brisbane Water National Park offer more basic camping options.

Where to go

Bouddi National Park

Across Brisbane Water from Umina, connected by a bridge, the small Bouddi National Park has a golden-sand beach, a popular coastal walk, and fantastic lookout points. The three campgrounds within the national park should be booked in advance, and are all suitable only for tents. Some provide drinking water but not all, so come prepared with all the provisions you may need.

Brisbane Water National Park

Bordering Umina on the west, the Brisbane Water National Park offers walks, cycling, and fishing. There’s a small, basic bush tent site within the national park itself, or visitors can stay at nearby Umina or Gosford and make day trips into the park, as road access into the park does not require four-wheel drive vehicles.

Sydney’s Northern Beaches

Umina is located on a peninsula, and just across Broken Bay is the Sydney Northern Beaches area and the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. Coastal towns like Palm Beach, Whale Beach, and Avalon Beach offer well-equipped campgrounds suitable for all types of campers, while the national park across Pittwater has one campground, the Basin Campground, which can be reached by ferry.

When to go

To enjoy the beautiful beaches around Umina, visit in the summer (December-February). The summer school holiday period, especially late December and early January, will be especially busy as the Umina area is popular with families. Summers can be very hot on the Central Coast, so to enjoy hiking and cycling, spring (September-November) and autumn (March-May) may be preferable. Winter (June-August) is the off-season and the weather can be cool and wet but not exceptionally cold, so may be suitable for campervans and caravans.
