Moruya North Head Camping Ground?

Anyone been there? It's quite a bit closer than Mystery Bay where we normally go and it seems to be an off-leash beach as opposed to a shared beach like at Mystery. I also like it being near the river.

Not in modern times! My grandparents lived at Moruya which I visited as a child several lifetimes ago. Even been to the north head once, the one from which the granite for the Sydney Harbour Bridge was mined. Historical trivia aside - I hope you do go there, have a fabulous time and post a few pix for this nostalgia buff to get off on ;-)

As wonderful as I think I am, I still learn something new everyday. I know that Paul hogan worked on the bridge. :lol:

I've only driven through Moruya, but maybe this might help you find a place to stay, things to do, places to eat etc. http://www.totaltravel.com.au/travel/ns ... ry/caravan

I know Moruya, but was hoping that someone might be able give me a personal account of the camping ground. I'll just have to try it out and then I can write a review. :)

I think it probably would get very busy in peak season, but then so does Mystery.

There is one downside to the location: I'd have to go over the Clyde and I hate the traffic on that road. There are way too many idiots on there when it gets busy. I much perfer the Brown Mountain road.

If I'm really keen I can take the dirt road from Araluen. It's pretty hairy though and I have to go 40kph most of the way (and it's about 100kms!). Last time I took that road I had locals trying to convince me to turn my little Astra back and take the highway. They thought I just got lost. It's a fun road to drive on if you're not in a hurry though.
