Each site has a picnic table and a fire-pit and you can book a camp oven package if you would like to engage in some outdoor cooking. It's fun, relaxing and nothing beats a camp oven stew! Our community kitchen is a hub for get togethers and yarns, well equipped with a gas cooktop, toaster, kettle, cooking utensils, a BBQ, fridge/freezer, and plenty of tables.

The best camping near Broadwater National Park guide

Overview

About

An ideal pop-off for a coastal picnic or walk, Broadwater National Park is conveniently located right off the Pacific Highway along the most scenic shoreline in New South Wales. While camping isn't allowed inside the park, nearby campgrounds in the holiday villages of Evans Head and Ballina make good base camps for exploring the coast. A steep hike up ancient ridges to the Broadwater Inland Lookout is rewarded by sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean, while walking tracks across the beach and sand dunes let visitors get even closer to the water for a swim or surf. The park’s diverse fauna makes it a great place for birdwatching, from seabirds soaring overhead to herons and ibis wading in the marsh.

When to go

In spring, the coastal heathland bursts into color with wildflowers. This is also when migrating whales often swim offshore with new calves. Summer is the best time for swimming, surfing, and sunbathing on the beach, while autumn’s cooler temps are ideal for a dune walk or trek up to the lookout. Winter can also be a good time for whale watching, when humpbacks can be spotted on their annual journey north.

Know before you go

  • Toilets, picnic tables, and barbecue shelters are available at the Broadwater Beach picnic area, located on the park’s north end.
  • No lifeguards are on duty, so practice water safety when swimming or surfing. 
  • Pets and smoking are not allowed inside the park. 
  • Paddlers can drop in just south of the park on the Evans River route inside Bundjalung National Park.
