Hi,

Can someone give me ideas for 4*4 beach camping locations within travelling distance of Sydney? I'm thinking weekend trips but longer trip suggestions would be welcome too.

Have a roof top tent so not too picky about ground conditions etc, just need somewhere to park.

Stockton is always a good bet. Close enough but also far enough away from everything. You might also look at the beach up toward Hawks Nest, but I am not on whether a NPWS camping permit is requited or if camping is allowed at all.

steve... stocko is definately the go. there is places near hawks nest.. but you can get into a bit of trouble with permits etc..stocko only requires standard beach permit (get them at the servo at Anna Bay -almost opposit the beach access point) and as long as we are all good kids and keep picking up our rubbish when camping on the beach.. council etc will continue letting 4x4'ers camp there>!
don;t know of any between Newy and sydney... there is alos places further up the coast.. but you'd be on the sand within 2/1/2 huors from sydney so yo can't go wrong!l let me know if yo need any more info!>

Thanks for that. Stockton's penciled in for a months time, Green Patch at Jervis bay is the next on the list for the comming weekend.

Know it's not right on the beach but promises to be good.

Green Patch is a lovely place, but it's camping in a camp site with facilities.

If you're going as far as Jervis, then what about Myall Lakes up north? That's camping RIGHT on the water. Not beach though, it's lake.

Cheers.

Thanks for that I'll add Myall Lakes to the list.

Anyone think of choice spots in the Blue Mountains?

Hows it going Steve,

You might like to have a look around the Seal Rocks area. There is the Trechery Camp , bush campground with showerblocks ,futher down the coast was a NP camping area but it may be closed. You can drive on most of the beachs and they usually provide excellent fishing and surfing.If you have a bit of a look about there are some opportunities for free bush camping.

Hope this helps

Glenn.

Hi Steve,
Glenn is right on the money with Seal Rocks. A fantastic place but 4 hours drive from Sydney. Treachery Camp closes the gates at 9pm so there can be a bit of pressure to get there on a Friday but a few K's further down the dirt road are NP camp sites. All have beach access.

Thanks all,

Should keep us going for a few months:-)

Mind you I'd still like to try in the mountains aswell.

Thanks again
