Gulaga National Park
Mother Mountain

Gulaga National Park was created in January 2001. It covers an area of 4,673 hectares.

Camping by the beach Eurobodalla National Park
A protected ribbon of coastline

Eurobodalla National Park is an ideal destination for a short day trip or, better yet, an awesome weekend away. 

Stretching south from Moruya Heads to Mystery Bay, the park is a feast of secluded beaches, coastal tracks, parks and forests, and stunning views. 

Take your board for a surf at 1080 Beach, or tackle hiking tracks like Bingi Dreaming Track. Look for whales in Spring, or just wind down and kick back at one of the park’s choice camping or recreation areas.

Visitors are rewarded by the protected environment and an abundance of natural beauty and remarkable biodiversity. Without a doubt, one of the best parks Eurobodalla has to offer.


Escape the civilised world

Deua National Park feels remote. Bordered by State Forests and private land, it is best accessed with a 4WD. You will truly feel like you have left civilisation behind with steep mountains and tall forests all around.

Set up your camp in a peaceful riverside retreat at Bendethera Valley campground and recreation area. 

The campground is a great base for  exploring Bendethera Cave. Deua River flows through the open valley, which in early spring is splashed with the yellow bloom of Bendethera wattle.


Ancient geological rock formations in Murramarang National Park
Where forests meet ocean

With 44km stretch of breathtaking coastline, Murramarang is the ultimate destination to enjoy the sun, pristine waters and explore some of the south coast’s most intriguing rock formations and ancient headlands.

With peregrine falcons and sea eagles reigning in as a couple of the local wildlife stars, you won’t want to forget your binoculars, or your fishing gear for when you’re in the mood for catching your dinner.

Murramarang is one of the rare spots in Australia where spotted gums can be seen to grow right down to the shore. This provides some much needed shade in those warmer months. 

And when you’ve just about had your fill of the park’s stunning beaches, there’s nothing to stop you from taking to a canoe drifting down Durras Lake. 

Settle into a peaceful retreat at the site’s river camping and recreation area.
