Bungaree Bay Campground - Myall Lakes National Park

National Park - New South Wales


The small Bungarie Bay campground is a peaceful spot nestled by the shores of Boolambayte Lake, a short drive from Bulahdelah. The 7 campsites are surrounded by tall casuarina and paperbark forest, with stunning views across the lake. The campground is a great base to enjoy swimming and paddling during the warmer months. If you're into water sports or want to fish in nearby Myall Lake, there's a boat ramp and wharf up the road at Violet Hill campground and picnic area. Boolambayte Lake is a bird watcher's paradise and is part of the Myall Lakes system, which is internationally recognised as a protected Ramsar Wetland. Sit back and watch huge flocks of black swans erupt from the water, or try to spot rare waterbirds like the black-necked stork or wompoo fruit dove. The surrounding forest is also full of wildlife, so keep an eye out for koalas, swamp wallabies, echidnas and even dingoes. In the evening, light a campfire and keep your eyes peeled for possums, owls and bandicoots that come out after dusk.
