Campsite at Aragannu in Mimosa Rocks National Park (Image: OEH)This large campground features four distinct camping areas, so bring your tent or camper trailer and take your pick of campsite setting: untamed surroundings just 50m from the beach, an open, grassy area shaded by tall coastal mahogany, or an elevated spot to the west of the beach.

Gillards campground (70 sites)

You’ll find this pretty campground nestled between the beach and the bush.  Suitable for caravans, motorhomes, tents and camper trailers; Gillards Beach campground is the perfect weekend getaway for families and small groups alike.

When you’ve set up your campsite, there’s plenty to do nearby. Take a refreshing walk along the sandy beach or set up stumps for a game of beach cricket. Remember to bring your fishing rod along – there are some great spots to sink a line and you’ll be able to cook your catch up for dinner on the camp barbecue.

In the evening, be sure to keep your eyes peeled and have your torch handy; you might spot a potoroo or two – they look a little bit like a small kangaroo or bandicoot. When you’re ready to retire for the evening, the sound of the waves crashing nearby is sure to lull you in to a peaceful sleep.

Middle Beach campground (12 sites)

Middle Beach campground features 12 campsites in a small clearing flanked by trees and bushes.

Make the most of its easy beach access for fishing, swimming or surfing. And definitely bring your kayak or canoe to enjoy a spot of paddling in the sea or on Middle Lagoon.

As its name suggests, Middle Beach sits right in the middle of the park’s coastline. It’s a walk-in campground, but don’t let that deter you - it’s only around 80m to the campsites from the car parking area.

You’ll definitely reap the rewards of this lovely, quiet spot – particularly during holidays when other campgrounds fill up fast.

Activities: paddling, snorkelling, swimming, fishing, surfing

Location:  shown on Middle Lagoon to Moon Bay map

Getting there: To reach Middle Beach campground, follow the Tathra-Bermagui Road and turn onto Haighs Road, just north of Tanja, then look for Middle Beach Road.

Like the idea of basing yourself just steps away from your next catch? Then head to Picnic Point campground.

Nestled beside two beautiful sandy beaches, the campground is ideally located for beach fishing. Choose your perfect campsite amongst the banksias, then grab your rod and see if you can hook some bream to barbecue back at the campground.

Why not try a pretty coast walk or refresh with a dip in the ocean? And don’t forget to do as the name suggests and enjoy a picnic on the point. At the end of the day, fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves and get ready to do it all again tomorrow.
