Information

The Point Sinclair Campground (or Cactus Beach Campground) is set amongst the dune scrub, between the road and Cactus beach. Facilities are certainly basic but the place has a unique appeal and is a great spot for a 1-2 night visit to the area.

Camping is restricted to designated camp sites and dogs are permitted on a leash when in the camp ground. Limited supplies of bore water are available for showers but visitors will need to bring their own drinking water. Within the camp ground are a number of on-site caravans however visitors should be aware that there are no powered sites at Point Sinclair. During summer month temperatures can and do rise to above 40 degrees Celsius.

This whole area is protected under the Sth Aust Govt Heritage Agreement as a Coastal Protection Reserve. The campground is a privately owned and operated property of 550 hectares and the owner – Ron Gates arrived at this area in the mid 1970's and stayed on, eventually buying the property in 1986. Ron will come around daily to collect camping fees and if you're lucky you'll get a story out of him. There are also a number of permanent residences for other long-term surfers. It's somewhat it's own community.

You'll find the ½ walled pit toilets lined with garbage bags are meticulously cleaned and changed daily. There are also stone and wood wind breaks that surround fire places – with the firewood delivered as needed by Ron, although since it is scare in this area, it is polite to bring your own, or contribute.

Be sure to ring to check availability if you intend camping before you make the drive.
