Melaleuca Campground - Limeburners Creek NP

National Park - New South Wales


Melaleuca campground is Limeburners Creek’s best-kept secret. Located alongside a privately owned waterway, this picturesque coastal campground is tucked away from the strong coastal winds and offers a place of peaceful solitude for those looking to get away from it all. Once you’re there, you’ll have the place to yourself. Your only visitors might be a goanna or a dingo scavenging for food, so keep things well-secured. Find a grassy campsite to pitch your tent or park your caravan looking out across the tranquil waters, with the lush rainforest behind you. Unwind in the tranquillity of this peaceful setting or head off to explore the rare coastal rainforest on Big Hill Rainforest walking track. There’s also great surfing, swimming and snorkelling at the nearby beaches.
