Camping at Eurimbula National Park: Review

If you’ve read my short but highly unimpressed post on our trip to Eurimbula National Park, you’ll know that we didn’t think very highly for our two nights there. Here’s why…

MIDDLE CREEK

Since we felt like alien intruders at the creek-based camping area at Middle Creek when we did our quick scouting-for-the-best campsite drive-around, we ended up camping on top of a hill. Whilst we did have a nice view of the creek and beach, we also got lots of mozzies and nothing much else. Not even a single spot of shade. Or grass. So glad we only stayed a night.

Camping in the hill section at Middle Creek. With views, relentless sun and dirt.

Pros: Boating and fishing?? A view of some sort??
Cons: Boating and fishing?? Mozzies, no shade and overall uninspiring

 EURIMBULA CREEK

The next morning we moved very swiftly to the other campground we had booked at Eurimbula, Eurimbula Creek. Still not hugely inspiring but the beach was close and at least we had some shade. However, as we discovered within an hour, this area is also a breeding ground for mozzies and other biting critters.

Our shady but insanely mozzie-infested camp site at Eurimbula Creek

Pros: Fairly close to Bustard Beach and shady camp sites
Cons: The largest swarms of mozzies you’ve ever seen, generators, and no shower to wash off the salt water

Perhaps if you come at a different time, it might actually be enjoyable but we probably had one of the least fun camping experiences at Eurimbula.
