Wishlist:close to Sydney, near water, no 4WD with 1.5yr old

Hi Campers

I was hoping someone could recommend a camping spot for the 3 of us (me, my partner and our 1.5 year old) for a couple of nights mid-October. We don't have a 4WD.

Our wish list is:
Close to Sydney
Near Water
fairly secluded

I saw the Watagan Mountains post and that look great but was hoping for another option in case of bushfires.

Thanks heaps

Might not be as close to sydney as you want : viewtopic.php?t=335

Its about 3 1/2 hrs. But you have river/lake/beach in the general area.

But if you plan on being there over xmas and want to stay at Banksia Green campground be prepared for noise and lots of people :armsup :armsup (i'll be there :lol: )

Hi. We live on the Central Coast and have just come back from a week at Frying Pan Creek in Chichester state Forest. It is about 30 kms from Dungog or about 2 1/2 hrs north of Gosford. There is pit toilets. We camped near the river on a huge grassy area. Plenty of wild life. Would thoroughly recommend it!
