Bit of a surfing nut and would like to go an check out the epic wave sometimes found at Angourie.

Have a off road camper and am full self sufficient.

Does anyone know of any camping options (drive in) 4x4 or otherwise in the Angourie area which will be close enough to get access to the legendary surf break.

In the late 70s used to camp in the bush south of Angourie.
And had it perfect just about every time we went there.
Just north of angourie is a place called spooky's from memory it was a left.

Also we used to drive way down south I think to brooms head this is all from the hazy 70s
We got waves all along the coast around there.

You probably arnt allowed down along the coast any more.

Great memory's.

All the best

You got a few at Yamba.
The best in my opinion is the blue dolphin then the one right in town which the name escapes me.
Both 5 minutes from Angourie.
Don't forget Pippy beach has some really nice waves as well as turners beach if the swells from the east southeast.

Can you drive onto the beach to the South and maybe camp in the dunes?

No. Very regulated now, they even want you to pay for day visits last time I was there.

I agree with someones sentiments about the Blue Dolphin being a nice park but take a healthy c/card if you want to stay here.

Enjoy, regardless of cost it is a beautiful spot.

Hi Kelvin,
Beach travel is a no go unless you buy a permit from Clarence Valley Council. Don't know what it costs.
Try the south about 40k's away at Brooms Head caravan park well priced and good amenities, or the National park at Red Rock, its a bit pricey with no showers and only a long drop.
The Yamba/Angourie area has become very touristy of late, and are becoming less camper orientated.
Even further south from Broom you can travel towards Sandon and on further to Wooli/Minnie Waters down the Candole State Forest road. The Local are very helpful.
Hope this helps,, Enjoy your waves.
