Woody Head

Bundjalung National Park

semi-overcast 26 °C

Woody Head in the Bundjalung National Park is a short drive down the coast from Byron Bay and has a great National Parks campground sheltered by high sand dunes. National Parks in NSW have high campground fees compared to other states and the other cost is the entry fee into the National Park which is $8 per day per vehicle, or if you are touring like us it is cheaper to buy a yearly Country Pass for $45. The camp fees at Woody Head are $34 per night with no power and if you want a hot shower it is $1. The facilities are good and the campground is well kept with free firewood.

The weather here alternated between cloud and sun with the odd shower of rain and mid twenties temperatures. Our two days here were very enjoyable as we explored the local beaches and the fishing town of Iluka. Iluka is a nice quiet fishing town situated at the mouth of the Clarence River where we were able to buy some fresh fish and prawns. Shark Bay just up the road from Woody Head has access to Ten Mile Beach which curves around all the way to the Black Rocks campground in the northern section of Bundjalung National Park. You can drive along the beach here to fish or find a beach break to surf all by yourself.

This campground was quite busy on the weekend and is popular with families due to the protected beach, boat ramp and large campground where kids can ride around on their bikes. It was nice being able to have a camp fire, the setting was lovely and the vibe here was great which made the high camp fees worth it for us.
