White Tree Bay Campground - Myall Lakes National Park

National Park - New South Wales


If you’re into birdwatching, you’ll be in your element at White Tree Bay campground and picnic area. Located on the eastern shore of Bombah Broadwater, it’s only a short drive north of Newcastle and a great place to camp. Pitch your tent or park the caravan in a clearing fringed with majestic paperbarks, then immerse yourself in the watery wonderland of the Myall Lakes National Park.

From the comfort of your temporary park home, you’ll hear the unmistakable call of the yellow-tailed black cockatoo or the musical currawong. The nearby Bombah Broadwater attracts huge numbers of migratory birds and you might see gannets diving for fish. It’s about 1.5km to Mungo Beach, and the long Old Gibber Road/Mining Road fire trail is perfect for mountain biking and hiking.

As the sun goes down, head to White Tree Bay picnic area right on the lake, cook up a barbecue meal, sit back and enjoy the symphony of birdsong at sunset.

We enjoyed two nights in this lovely bush setting. Sites are generous level & marked. The drop toilets seemed quite new & were very clean. Very quiet & peaceful with beautiful sunsets on the lake. Very busy on the weekend but by Sunday afternoon we had it to ourselves. Be aware the road in from Buladelah is dirt for about 10 km. It is in good condition & we managed it easily in our 2WD motorhome. The ferry crossing is $6.50 - $10 for over 4.5 tonne. The ferry only runs every 30 minutes between 8 am & 6 pm. If approaching from Hawks Nest the road is bitumen & no ferry crossing required.
Camping Fee $24.60
