Hi! We have recently spent a week camping at Brooms Head which we absolutely loved. We are keen to try out other camping grounds in Northern NSW. We have 3 children under 10 so we are looking for somewhere that would be suitable for them. We have a large set up 11m x 11m with tent and tarp. We loved being so close to the beach and in a child friendly camp ground. Could anyone recommend tent camping grounds? I am looking for ideas of where we can escape for our next adventure. I am looking for camping ground where you can book ahead. Thank you in advance.

Tracy
You need to provide more details, such as 2WD/4WD access, free camping or Caravan Parks, what activities if any you want to do there, what facilities you are after (eg flushing toilets/ long drops or none!), where you are based & how far you are prepared to travel, whether you want to be on the beach, river or not.
Yep Brooms Head is nice

Hi Tracy,

Not sure if this would be north enough for you but there are a couple of campgrounds in the Crowdy Bay National park at Diamond Head near Laurieton. Very close to the beach, flush toilets but only cold showers. Huge long beach and equally huge headland. Good swimming area in near the headland. One of our favourites but it does get busy in school holidays.

Cheers,

Val.

Have a look at Ballina South Caravan park. Walking distance to beach or 4WD access. Big bush camping area. Communal kitchen. We enjoy it. A little pricey....but what isn't that is so close to the beach on the east coast

Hi Tracy

We have been there for a while, but Yamba was always a fantastic spot to go to. The park that we used to go to was right on the Water and fantadtic for our kids.

Lots to do and explore in the area.



Cheers

Do yourself a favour, get beyond the "sandstone curtain" and into the real NSW.

Try Barkala Farmstay at Pilliga Pottery. Plenty of room for kids, wonderful (well marked) bush walks, bird watching tours, and free pottery demonstrations if you ask for them. A wonderful cafe on-site (with on-licence for the adults) for lunch, and dinner.

A few km north of Coonabarabran on the Newell Highway, well signposted, but a 10km dirt road - as good as some sealed roads around - off the highway.

I'm sure there are numerous van parks in nice locations that would suit (just go through each town in turn and google van parks for those towns) .... except for the 11m x 11m setup. I think that would be fine in quiet times in unpowered areas of van parks but in busy times I think some of them will say it is too large.

Try Woody Head, near Iluka, in the National Park. Right on the beach, good facilities,
coin showers, no power, kid friendly, free firewood. Top spot, may need to book for
peak periods. Just off Iluka Rd, 2wd access.
cheers.....oldbaz.
