Booderee Camping Weekend


  • Booderee National Park Jervis Bay Rd Jervis Bay, JBT, 2540 Australia (map)

Spring camping weekend exploring Booderee National Park on the NSW south coast.

Explore unspoiled beaches, abundant flora and fauna and witness views from the highest sea cliffs in New South Wales. With the convenience of tent camping near your car, and facilities like flush toilets and hot showers, this trip will suit well prepared people who have basic camping gear.

We have a fantastic group space for 20 people at Bristol Point camping area. The Hike Out crew will camp both Friday and Saturday night, then head home on Sunday after a great weekend exploring this magnificent area. We’ll plan walks to the park’s beaches, headlands and attractions, with something for everyone regardless of experience or fitness. You might prefer to spend a day on a sandy beach, or visit a seaside village to find a good coffee and some tasty food.

Amenities at the campground include toilets, hot showers, fresh water & wood fireplaces. Barbecues are available, but please bring your own gas cooker as well. Parking is less than 50 metres from tent sites, however this booking is NOT suitable for vehicle or caravan based camping. Open fires are not permitted at Booderee.

Allow about 3 hours travel time from Sydney CBD. See this Google map for location and route suggestions: http://goo.gl/Ucx9Hv

$40.00 per person - Includes 2 nights tent camping and park entry fees
