Thurra River Campground - Croajingolong National Park

National Park - Victoria

Favourite

Set between the calm Thurra River and wild Southern Ocean swells, the spacious Thurra River Campground is the perfect base for a great family escape.

Explore the unique landscape of the Thurra River Dunes. A short walk from the campground meanders through coastal banksia and heathland before opening onto the dunes towering 30-metres above the coast below. Take in the views over the pristine forested slopes of Croajingolong National Park, the rough Southern Ocean and if you’re lucky Southern-right and Humpback Whales splashing about the water between September and November.

Just beyond the dunes, discover Point Hicks Lightstation and learn the secrets of Captain James Cooks first sighting of mainland Australia, life in this remote part of the world and the stories of wrecks found throughout the area. Walk from the campground to access the lightstation.

Thurra River Campground offers non-flush toilets, shared picnic tables and fireplaces with barbecue plates for visitors to enjoy.
