Hillside Bush Getaway

25 sites · RVs, TentsFalls Creek, NSW
Situated on 40 acres of natural bushland with an abundance of wildlife and birds. We are located an easy 15 minute drive from the stunning South Coast beaches, Huskisson and of Jervis Bay, and 10 minutes south of Nowra. I've done lots of caravanning myself and always loved a place like this to spend a few nights. It's quiet, safe to leave your van here and go out in the day and explore the area. It's the perfect base to explore the Jervis Bay area, there is lots to see and do...or you may decide to do nothing but sit around, relax and take in the peaceful surrounds. We don't offer any amenities so our place suits campers who have their own toilet and shower and leave no trace. Leave the site as you found it. Grey water okay to go on the ground. Dog friendly, please keep them on the lead and well controlled. Campfires permitted when restrictions aren't in place, wood around for you to gather your own. The road is sealed all the way to front gate. After the gate is fairly smooth unsealed. IMPORTANT! Directions to my place are a bit tricky so check MY TRIPS in your profile once your booking is confirmed.

Tomerong Forest

15 sites · RVs, Tents600 acres · Falls Creek, NSW
At Tomerong Forest, you'll find 600 acres of private native forest with an abundance of wildlife, welcoming self-contained campers to immerse themselves in nature. You'll be camped just 15 minutes drive from Huskisson, Hyamms Beach, and St George's Basin - a great location if you want laid-back bush camping, but also crave a restaurant meal and a swim in the beautiful waters of Jervis Bay. It is isolated from the overcrowded tourist parks and offers great secluded camping. At the right time, you will literally not see another human for days if that is your wish! At the current moment, a 4WD is essential to access the property. All campers must be self-contained, with their own camp toilet, and take all waste when they go. So if you are tired of that 6 metre x 6 metre tent site and don't want to hear the guy next door coughing and snoring, or if you just want to only hear the sound of the breeze through the trees, come and stay a few days or a week or longer if you wish. Seclusion this accessible from Sydney is a rare commodity. Pets are welcome, but please keep them under control as we value the wildlife. Sorry, no cats for that particular reason.

The best camping near Booderee National Park guide

Overview

About

Boasting some of the whitest sands in the world, fringed by high cliffs and verdant botanical gardens, Booderee National Park has some of NSW’s most impressive coastal views. Whether swimming, surfing, or snorkeling at one of the many beaches, walking along the coast or through the rainforest, or whale-watching at Cape St George Lighthouse, there are plenty of ways to get outdoors in the park. Bring your boat to cruise around the bay, try your luck fishing for salmon and mackerel, and go bird-watching before pitching your tent or parking your RV at one of the beachside campgrounds.

Notable campgrounds

  • Best for families: Green Patch has tent and RV sites by the beach and facilities that include hot-water showers and barbecues.
  • Best for hikers: Bristol Point has walk-in campsites set in natural bushland within easy reach of the beaches and hiking trails. 
  • Best for sun and surf: Cave Beach has walk-in tent sites with toilets, barbecues, and cold-water showers by the NP’s most renowned surf beach. 

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. You can reserve a campsite at one of the park’s three campgrounds online via the Parks Australia website. All campsites must be booked in advance.
  2. Weekend sites typically fill up more than a month in advance from October through May—book three months in advance to avoid disappointment. 
  3. Campsites for the summer school holiday periods are allocated by ballot—contact the Booderee Visitor Centre at least three months prior to enter the draw.

When to go

October through May is high season in Booderee National Park, when its beaches and trails get particularly crowded. Alternatively, time your visit to catch the winter whale migration from early June through early July, when humpback and southern right whales can be spotted along the coast. Campsites stay open year-round, and with winter temperatures rarely dipping below 10°C, it’s an ideal time for bushwalking and bird-watching.

Know before you go

  • Booderee National Park lies along Jervis Bay, about a 10-minute drive from Vincentia and Huskisson. Both towns have supermarkets, gas stations, and other general stores.
  • Facilities within the park include a Visitor Centre, restrooms, picnic areas, and boat launches. There are no lifeguard patrols, so swimming is at your own risk.
  • Park passes are required for all vehicles and boats entering the park and are valid for two days; admission is free for those visiting on foot or by bike.
  • Cell phone and internet coverage within the park is patchy.
