Camping at Shipwreck Creek

Shipwreck Creek is the smallest campground, with only five sites, some suitable for campervans or camper trailers. The camp is set in a tall forest above a small secluded cove which is only a 10 minute walk away. It is an excellent base for walks covering both heathland and coastal scenery. Non-flush toilets, shared picnic facilities and fireplaces are provided.

This campground is approximately 15km from Mallacoota along a gravel road.  This track is not recommended for two wheel drive vehicles.

Advance bookings and payment are required year round.
