South Coast Camping at its Best

Throughout Coolendel’s 52 hectare bushland, you will find both secluded and open grassy areas, and you can camp wherever you like! You might be tempted to set up in the main camping area, near the warmth of an open fireplace and convenience of a picnic bench and hot shower. Alternatively, you might want to camp at one of the more remote sites such as  Willow Flat, Sandy Beach, Canoe Flat, The Burrows, Riverview, and Hideaway.

Facilities for our campers include:

  • open fireplaces
  • amenities with flush toilets, hot showers, baby change table, and facilities for the disabled
  • laundries for hand washing
  • large shelter shed
  • gas BBQ area.

Eco-Friendly Camping

Everything, including power and water, is generated onsite at Coolendel. We are proud of our sustainability and aim to provide an authentic bush camping experience with some modern comforts including hot showers and flushing toilets. In addition to your camping equipment, we recommend you bring the following:

  • River shoes or sandals as the river pebbles can be a little uncomfortable to walk on
  • Torches for ‘wombat spotting’
  • Marshmallows to toast over the campfire
  • Insect repellent

If you forget something, visit our kiosk which sells basic food and camping supplies such as ice, bread, milk, firewood, and gas. Other than that, it’s just you and the natural beauty of the outdoors. Expect to share your camp with wombats, wallabies, goannas, and a variety of birds! Contact Coolendel today to find out why we’re leading the way for South Coast camping or to make a booking.
