Camping with a Boat: NSW

Postby markannab » Mon Jan 12, 2009 7:56 pm

Hi all

I live in Taree (http://maps.google.com.au/maps?hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=-31.911714,152.463871&spn=0.259959,0.521851&t=h&z=12) on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales. My wife & I are looking for places to tent with a 13' tinny either on fresh water or salt - but if salt, the camping area needs to be at least a few km's inland to avoid salt air and sand.

Using Google Earth, I've flown up & down the coast a bit but other than Smiths Lake, Tea Gardens, and areas like that, I can't find a lot of likely areas to camp. Can anyone suggest a good place between, say, Newcastle and Grafton (and maybe up to 40km inland)?

Thanks for your help,
Mark.

Thanks for those suggestions. I knew some but not others. I'll do some research.
