Camping in Croajingolong National Park

Croajingolong National Park near the Victoria/New South Wales border covers a 100 km stretch of coastline and encompasses some diverse landscapes – sweeping beaches, the massive dunes of Thurra River, panoramic views from Genoa Peak, orange lichen-covered granite boulders of Tamboon inlet, forests and healthlands, peat-rich rivers, giant lizards, and an abundance of birdlife and critters.

Two camper van friendly and secluded coastal camping spots provide the perfect base for exploring it all.
