South of Sydney Camp Grounds

Postby Woodsy » Tue Feb 02, 2010 11:46 pm

Amanda and i are off again on another 4 days away camping. We Need it after the last few months. The last time we went to Ferndale Park on the footsteps of the Barringtons but this time Amanda wants something with a Beach / water. We are doing away with our normal tent setup this time and borrowing a 3 room dome tent to see how we like them. We are looking to go South of Sydney and the site needs to have Toilets atleast. Looking for somewhere proven to be a good spot for a relaxing few days away. We are leaving next friday morning.. We just need a destination!

Cheers

Josh

We recently stayed a couple of nights at Bendeela Picnic & Camping Area near Kangaroo Valley (approx 30 km inland from Nowra)
It is a free camp area run/owned by the Sydney Water Catchment Authority right on the Shoalhaven river.
2 toilet blocks and when we were there quite a few portables for the extras due to summer holidays.
There is approx 1.5 km long X several hundred meters wide of areas to camp.
Saw Wombats and a Lace Monitor during our stay.

Hey Bradd.

Thanks for posting that. It looks quite good, we have also found Pebbly Beach too which looks great as well!

Ok we can almost rule out Pebbly Beach, Its just a tad to far for us to go camping, but it does look like a Great spot!

We did end up going camping, went up North to Mungo. Instead of making a new topic i will revive the original mungo one.
