5 Best Places to Camp in NSW


Camping is one of the best ways to slow down, reconnect with the natural world, and take time to enjoy life without all of the electronic trappings of modern society. If you own a diesel land rover crossover suv and live in the New South Wales area, or even if you don't, there are dozens of camp sites worth checking out the next time you have a holiday or a free weekend. Here are 5 of the best places to set up camp in NSW.

5. Wave Hill Station

The first place to check out for its camping potential is Wave Hill Station. It's in the northern edge of the state and is rather close to Grafton. You get the best of all kinds of things if you go there. It's really a cattle station around 5,000 hectares long and wide. As a result, if you are a camper, you will have lots of room to get your tent pitched and enjoy the outback. You can also enjoy the Clarence River, which is rather close by.

4. Seal Rocks

Seal Rocks is located inside the Myall Lakes National park, and has drawn campers from all over the country for decades. It's a rustic area that lets you choose your own canvas tent site as a guest, as it doesn't adhere to the modern view of designating allotted sites to each camper. There is a great amount of beach with white sandy dunes there.

3. Barrington Rocks National Park

If you drive four hours to the north and west of Sydney, you'll get to 80,000 hectares of goodness. You can trek, fish, swim, bike, and canoe to your heart's content here, and enjoy the rain forest, mountain streams, and wildlife sanctuaries.

2. Umina Beach

Umina Beach is rather close to Sydney, only 90km away, but you can still easily get a sense of being away from it all. Lots of modern amenities are here, and the golden sands are a sight to behold.

Finally, if you're looking for somewhere to camp in New South Wales, you can't pass up Soldiers Point. It's kind of a hybrid of both the luxury and the traditional experience one expects when one goes camping. There's a holiday park close by that gives visitors access to things like free wireless Internet, kiddy pools, and luxury villas.

Naturally, you can also take advantage of things like excellent views of the sea and beach. There are 45 lots dedicated specifically to canvas tents, and you're not far from Port Stephens if you need to go pick up additional supplies.


In conclusion, whether you're planning a private getaway, a couple's retreat, or a family fun trip out under the stars, there are plenty of places to visit in New South Wales to fulfil your camping desires. Just look up the information on the place you visit ahead of time, and if you're short of ideas, it's hard to go wrong with one of the five locations described above.
