When you head south from Ulladulla with your caravan or camper in tow on your next family camping holiday, you’ll find a wonderland of beauty with so many fantastic places to stay and explore.
Just a few kilometres down the Princes Highway is Burrill Lake. This large and beautiful lake is renowned for fishing and prawning, but is also perfect for swimming and all types of boating.
The Big 4 Bungalow Park is located on the shores of Burrill Lake with its own jetties, quality sites and plenty to do including mini golf, tennis, pedal boats, bird feeding, children’s playgrounds, jumping pillow and swimming pool.
A little further south is Lake Tabourie, with its surf beach and tranquil lake shores.
Lake Tabourie is a shallow lake, best suited to flat bottomed non-motorised vessels. The lake provides a pleasant setting for kayaking, fishing or swimming.
The Lake Tabourie Holiday Haven Tourist Park, conveniently located between the beach and lake, offers generous grassy powered sites with either beach or lake frontage.
Kids’ activities include an aquatic playground, children’s playgrounds, jumping pillows, tennis court, mini golf, BMX pump track and canoe hire.
Continue south along the Princes Highway and you’ll reach the turn off to Bawley Point.

Nestled between the Meroo and Murramarang National Parks, this friendly community shares its pristine surfing and swimming beaches with thousands of holiday makers every year.
At its southernmost tip is the village of Kioloa, the beautiful Merry Beach and Merry Beach Caravan Resort.
Set up camp on a powered site with absolute beachfront and be perfectly placed for excellent beach or rock fishing, surfing, swimming or walking in the neighbouring national park.
You’ll be surrounded by wildlife including kangaroos, possums and birds but yet still enjoy the resort style swimming pool and be conveniently close to shops and a quality local restaurant.
In the evening relax by an open fire, gaze up at the stars and know you’re in one of the last South Coast beachfront holiday parks still allowing campsite fireplaces.
For more of a bushland camping experience, drive past the Bawley Point turn off until you reach Mount Agony Road, turn left and follow the signs to Depot Beach Cabins and Camping.
This NSW National Parks-owned facility provides bush style camping, with basic facilities and easy access to the beautiful and unspoilt Depot Beach.
An adventure south of Ulladulla is sure to be a family holiday you’ll want to relive by visiting again and again.
