Myall Lakes National Park

After our busy weekend in Sydney {yeah I am still playing catch up with our trip down South which was years ago – Joking – before our next adventure!} – With our older son’s engagement party and Vivid Sydney we had two nights free before our next booked accommodation. So David decided to look at our Camps 7 Book and check out Myalll Lake National Park and see if we could stay there for two nights.

So glad he did because it was beautiful, even if there was Dingo warnings everywhere – including one the walls of the Drop Toilets. And yes they have big Dingoes walking past the Mungo Campsites at night time because we spotted them. And don’t leave your shoes outside at night time because the Dingo Puppies will take them and play with them as they are teething big time!

There is signs everywhere about the Dingoes – what to not do, what to do, and how never ever to feed them! Other campers warned us about not leaving anything outside as the puppies will take them and play with it – including door mats!

EXPLORE MYALL LAKES NATIONAL PARK

Capturing the essence of the Myall Lakees, the name “Myall” is thought to mean “wild, Untamed, Stranger”. These Virtues are your to experience as you discover one of the state’s finest natural coastal assets.

Off Shore Islands….
Included in Myall Lakes National Park is Broughton Island, the largest coastal island in NSW, with an area of 125ha. The shoreline is generally rocky with steep cliffs, but sandy beaches within Esmeralda Cove and along Providence Beach provide access for small boats. Sea conditions can vary and people should be aware of the conditions prior to departing for the Island and return from the Island. All maritime safety standards should be adhered to.

Broughton Island, together with the Myall Coast Nature Reserves provide important protected habitat for sea birds. Some of these include; Little Penguin, Sooty Oyster Catcher and ground nestingg and burrowing species such as mutton birds {shearwaters} and petrels.

Campsite Reservation and Prices

HOW TO BOOK YOUR CAMPSITE AND PRICES

We found it really confusing on how to book the campsite – and how to pay for it! It took a bit for us to work out which number to call, and how to pay over the phone. There are envelopes in a box but for some reason we had to do the booking and pay over the phone according to who we spoke with!  Still think that children shouldn’t be charged to stay in a spot that has no shower facilities!

Pictures of time gone by.

PICTURES OF THE SOCIAL EVENTS IN THE AREA

The Pavilion, which still stands int he picnic area, was built as a bar to serve drinks and food!

Sun Setting Over the Lake

WATCHING THE SUN SETTING OVER THE LAKE

FROM OUR CAMPER TRAILER SET UP

Yeah we had this amazing view from siting outside our Camper Trailer set up – it was almost like we were the only ones around. There was three other camp sites set up, but we were not next to them – so we had peace and quiet, and we didn’t have to worry about disturbing anyone!

Gorgeous Place to watch the sun set over the moutains

LIFE DOESN’T GET MUCH BETTER THAN THIS

Oh take me back! Life is good watching the Sun Set over the Myall Lakes National Park, over the mountains – and the place is so peaceful….loved our short stay there! Would go back in a heart beat – mind you we want to see more of Far North Queensland as we have seen so much of New South Wales {well you really couldn’t see all of Australia even if you tried!}
