If you're ready for a real adventure surrounded by nature, head for Shelly Beach campground. This idyllic lakeside camping spot is accessed by boat or canoe, or via a 3 hour walk or shorter cycle along Mining Road fire trail / Old Gibber Road fire trail.
When you arrive you'll know that you've arrived somewhere special. Pitch your tent on the edge of one of Australia's largest protected wetlands in Myall Lakes National Park, and gaze across the expanse to McGraths Island. Indulge in a spot of birdwatching, as white faced herons and darters are often seen fishing in these waters.
At night, after a campfire barbecue, grab the torch and check out the local wildlife such as sugar gliders and tiger quolls. When it's time to call it a night, fall asleep to the gentle sounds of the bush.
