Pebbly Beach- Yuraygir NP

Unread post by Gilly » November 18th, 2010, 12:30 pm

We recently got married and decided that the week after we would go camping for a few days. After looking around a bit we decided that we would go to Pebbly beach campground for 3 nights.

All i have to say about the area is, perfect. We liked it so much that we are looking to move up that way once we finish renovating our house.

The weather was perfect and we only got one night of rain but none ended up in the tent.

I like these types of signs

We passed this on 2 separate days, this one was taken at the crossing :confused:

We found this guy hanging out under the picnic table at Station creek

Looks like a great time mate. Thinking of heading up there at the end of the year. Whats that crossing like a low tide? Dont have a snorkel, does it come over the bonnet? Cheers

The water crossing was easy, it was around 400mm deep at low tide, we left around 2hrs before low and it was knee deep.

Bloody nice isn't it Gilly, I camp there every year at xmas. It's not hard to see why Corindi and Woolgoolgaoffroad enjoy camping there.

I was there in August this year, as I was coming along Station Creek Beach I came across a sea lion :thumb: I was stoked. If you sit on the southern headland you can see whales, and turtles feed on the bombie.

Last xmas a local from Coffs who camps there religously found on of those pythons in his bust shower, scared the pants off his missus......lol.

Last xmas my dad brought down his Subaru Liberty, the dill got stuck right at the top of the sand dunes as you enter the beach, nothing the snatch couldn't fix :crazy:

Yep it's beautiful there. No xmas camping there for us this year though, saving for camper trailer but next year with the camper we'll spend a couple of weeks there....awesome.

MJtroopy there are 60 sites and they pack out quickly during summer, a snorkel isn't nessesary for the creek crossing. Though many have tried to cross at a higher tide and have found themselves floating down the creek, I've seen the pics.

When we were there, there was only 2 other groups camping and we couldn't see them from our camp area. I really like the way it's setup.

Glad you enjoyed it and the weather was good to you Mr Gilly. We didn't come out because it was just after your wedding and ... well... you know what I mean? didn't want to interrupt anything. You camped at the windy site! we usually camp at the southern most site or jayco corner which is just before dry gully. We are going out there again around the 27th of December.

Gary, Over the last couple of years the "park full" signs have not been required. If you are leaving from Penrith send me a pm with your phone number and I will txt the contract ranger who is a mate off mine to get an idea if it is going to fill up.

It is a fantastic place to spend new years, see you there maybe.
