Then take a different direction and head south for some equally, if not better, camping, eating and nature experiences.

Reflections Holiday Parks have camping and caravan parks in all the most beautiful towns along the South Coast of NSW, so if you’re keen for something new here’s four towns you should consider when planning your next road trip. First up is...

 

Killalea

If you like your scenery with a whole lot of green in it and you're a bit of a beach babe then include a couple of nights at Killalea Reserve, Shellharbour. Located just an hour south of Sydney and with popular surf breaks like Mystics (or Minnamurra) and The Farm it’s a great place to start your southern trek. Make sure you check out The Farm's Markets held on the first Sunday of each month. Located within the Reflections Killalea Reserve and overlooking the ocean the markets have become a one-stop shop for fresh food, produce and fashion.Killalea

Bermagui

This sleepy little village throws out some spectacular scenery, Camel Rock is a must see, and is perfect for those who like to get active on their holidays. Renowned for its deep sea and game fishing there are loads of other water activities to get involved with like; skiing, surfing, diving and doing a few morning laps in the Blue Pool. There’s loads of land activities as well as a sweet little café scene, check Honorbread for all your sourdough needs.

Opposite Horseshoe Bay Beach Reflections Holiday Parks Bermagui is in a prime location, and with a bunch of festivals happening throughout the year best to plan your visit when the town is in full swing.

Pambula

If you love oysters, beer and bread, why have you not visited Pambula? Home to Longstocking Nano Brewery, Wild Rye's Baking Co. and a bunch of Oyster Farms, including Broadwater Oysters where you can visit the working oyster shed, chat to the farmers and of course taste some of the ocean's best. In addition to the food and booze there's an active artisan and craft scene that's worth checking out.

The camping option is very cool too with the Ben Boyd National Park, wetlands, beaches and heritage walks all at your doorstep.

Eden

The halfway point between Sydney and Melbourne, Eden is another coastal gem and is the home of deep-sea fishing. Head down to Snug Cover to check out all the yachts, fishing boats and catch a glimpse of the overnight loot before it gets shipped to the Sydney and Melbourne markets. There's plenty of restaurants and cafes to try out the seafood scene at with Drift being a favourite with the locals. 

You can also absorb a bit of history at the Eden Killer Whale Museum or even take yourself on the Killer Whale Trail. Pitch your tent right across the road from Aslings Beach, jump on your bike and perhaps enjoy some whale watching with this area on the east coast being Humpback Highway.
