Camping at the South Coast Track

Posted by Unknown On 18:20 1 comment

     There is no formal accommodation and no shops at either end of the South Coast Track: Cockle Creek or Melaleuca. There is a camping ground at a Cockle Creek and two bushwalker huts and a small shelter at the airstrip at Melaleuca. There are no huts along the South Coast Track and the campsites are very simple with no facilities except a few pit toilets.

The recommended campsites are at:
  • Point Eric
  • Louisa River
  • Little Deadman's Bay
  • New River Lagoon crossing
  • Surprise Bay
  • Osmiridium Beach
  • Granite Beach (east)
  • South Cape Rivulet
  • South Cape Bay
  • Cockle Creek
There are also numerous emergency campsites for 1-2 tents along the way.

I will subtract, I will run and I will share... read more...
