Planning to go to Hat Head/Crescent Head on the New South Wales north coast during the next school holidays (Late June to early July). Trying to chase some warmer weather ! Has anyone been there during these times, and what is the weather likely to be like ?

Hi Steve
They have pretty mild winter around there and is a great time to visit. I used to camp a bit there in the late 70's , their was a great little camping area near the boat ramp and from memory it was free but I supose this has all changed. My main interest was deep sea fishing and it's sure great for this. The continental shelf comes in very close to Hat Head hence the water is very deep and strong currents, and watch the container ships as they wont watch you. Have fished in competions at Cresent Head but only a novice there, hope you have a good holiday and catch plenty of mackeral which might still be around in June .
Regards WAl

Wal, thanks for the reply. What is the best way to hook on to the mackeral...baits, tackle etc... Visited Hat Head in September and didn't have a lot of luck. Caught one nice bream, but it went pretty quiet after that.

I live nearby. I think this place is probably the last unspoilt place on the mid-north coast. There is a caravan park, sorry but it's managed, which means you must pay. You are close to the beach and there is a lagoon if you desire a cooling winter swim. Usual facilities exist & there is a club.

Suggest you ring and book as school holidays can see the place pretty crowded. Their number is : 02-65677501.

Steve, Overlander produce an occassional magazine called Overlander Destinations. I spotted one in the news agency last week (so it must be a current edition) that had a short but detailed piece on Hat Head and surrounds. It might be worth grabbing a copy.Be good, or be quick.

Thanks Rohan...I read an article in Overlander, but it was back in October last year. Maybe this is a different one...I'll check it out.
