North Head Campground - Murramarang National Park

National Park - New South Wales


This is a bush camping spot with 10 formal sites. The car park is a few metres from the campsites. Booking is not necessary and there are no camping fees, but the daily Park Use Fee applies. 

This remote bush camp spot is ideal for the adventurous campers who like to get away from it all. At North Head campground, in Murramarang National Park, you’ll feel a million miles away from the modern world yet only a short drive from Batemans Bay on the South Coast.

Once you’ve pitched your tent, it’s only a short stroll to the beach and headlands of this rugged pristine coastline. Spend your days swimming, walking, fishing and exploring along the wild and unspoilt spots including Honeysuckle Beach.  It's a short drive or long walk to Oakey Beach walking track.

Activities: walking, snorkelling, swimming, birdwatching, astronomy and star gazing, whale watching, picnicking, playing and socialising

Getting there: From the Princes Highway take the Durras Road and then turn right into the North Head Road and follow until the end. It is also possible to go from Durras; follow the Old Coast Road then the North Head Road. 

Facilities: non-flush toilets

National Park campground as described, with exception that there is no ban that I saw for caravans or motorhomes. We stayed for a week. Campfires allowed. Great spot, nice beach (not patrolled), bush track / walks and only 7km of dirt road and 17 km all up from Batemans Bay.

Bookings are now required as in all NSW national parks supposedly to control camper numbers due to COVID. Cost is $6, whether for one night or 20. I doubt this cost will ever be removed. This is a lovely campground. The road in is very eroded in some areas, so careful wheel placement is required. There is no restriction of type of camper, but sites are not huge. It's silly to say tents and swags only.
