Camping Fees

  • Adult per night $18
  • Child (16 years and under) free

 Note: Option of paying by cash or EFTPOS


No advance bookings taken for the campground and in the busy holiday season (especially Christmas to 15 January) we suggest arrival by mid-afternoon to ensure you find a camping site. If demand is high an adjacent overflow camping area will be set up.


Please self-register on arrival prior to establishing your campsite. Deposit registration slip and cash in honesty box. If you prefer to pay by EFTPOS and/or require change (for camping, shower, BBQ) please see campground host. If host is not available write message on registration slip and they will follow up with you. During summer months campground hosts are resident on site and in winter they visit several times a day.
