Myall Lakes National Park, on the north coast not far from Newcastle, features one of the state’s largest coastal lake systems that offers countless opportunities for canoeing and kayaking, boating and fishing. The park also boasts more than 40kms of beaches that offer some good swimming and surfing spots.
You can visit for a daytrip to enjoy a barbecue or picnic and some walking, but it’s better to come for the weekend or longer to enjoy all that the park has to offer. There are lots of great campgrounds, some large and some small, including campsites for tents, trailers, caravans, motorhomes, and even boats, so you’re bound to find the perfect site to suit your needs. If camping is not your style, you can book in to the heritage listed accommodation at Sugarloaf Point Lighthouse.
Be sure to check out the Grandis; a 76 metre high flooded gum that is one of the tallest trees in the state. You'll find it in the Grandis picnic area north east of Bulahdelah.
Myall Lakes National Park, near Port Stephens, is a great place to go whale watching during the annual whale migration which takes place from June to November. Find the perfect vantage point and plan your next coastal adventure on the Wild About Whales website.
