The weather is warming up, days are getting longer and the water’s more inviting – all the perfect ingredients for an unforgettable camping holiday in the beautiful natural surroundings of Booderee National Park.

Located on the shores of pristine Jervis Bay, Booderee National Park offers three well maintained camping grounds at Green Patch, Bristol Point and Cave Beach.

All sites are unpowered, offering a genuine wilderness camping experience, but with a few conveniences to make your stay more comfortable.

Here’s how Mark from Sydney described his Booderee National Park camping experience:

“Our camping experience was phenomenal… the site was immaculate and incredibly well kept including safety, the trees had suspect branches removed… the amenities were modern and well maintained, we saw all manner of Australian wildlife… the beach was beautiful and the bush was amazing.

“As an Aussie, it was the best Australian experience I have ever had in a campground, and more than any international visitor could ask for to give them a taste of Australia and good things to say about this country when they get home”, he said.

The sites are perfectly located for playing on the beaches, exploring natural flora and fauna on the many walking tracks, enjoying lunch at one of several picnic areas or catching a glimpse of migrating Humpbacks or Southern Right Whales from Cape St George Lighthouse.

Bookings are essential to secure these picturesque sites, and can be made up to four months in advance. Weekend sites at Green Patch and Bristol Point are usually fully booked up to a month in advance during the warmer months of October through to May.

Sites at Cave Beach are set in a grass area behind the beach, but you will need to carry your camping gear the 300 metres from the car park to your site.

Currently, during the peak Christmas/New Year school holiday period, campsites at Green Patch and Bristol Point are allocated via ballot.
