Illaroo Camp - Yuraygir National Park

National Park - New South Wales


The spacious Illaroo campground is split in two parts – north and south – and offers 60 campsites just a hop, skip and a jump from the beach. Lovely walks including the Angophora Grove walk are nearby and the beach offers an endless array of options – from fishing to swimming to snorkelling. If you’re into canoeing try the nearby and stunning Wooli River and fishing boats can be launched from Minnie Water. In fact, it’s almost too easy to while away your days in this idyllic spot – you’ll never want to leave. Wooli and Grafton are easily accessible if you find you need supplies while camping in this remote area.

To add to the previous comment by Bruce Moon - you can buy a yearly NSW National Parks Pass - $45. Concessional -$36. One park only $22.

Good location, really pleasant parking / camping options. Clean pit toilets. Water available at park entrance (as is rubbish disposal). At $12 pp/night (plus Nat Park daily vehicle charge $8), the site is expensive. If it wasn't so expensive, it would be 3 stars.
