But don’t just take our word for it; let’s dive into why this coastal wonderland deserves a top spot on your camping bucket list.

Embrace the Beauty of the Unknown

We’re all about free and national park camping, and Australia seems to have designed itself perfectly for our camping quests. But wait, what if we told you that sometimes, a well-equipped paid campground can outshine even the most secluded free spot? Picture this: hot showers, easy-peasy dishwashing, and even a playground for the little adventurers. Yep, Ulladulla knows how to roll out the welcome mat.

Where Ocean Views Are Just the Beginning

Now, imagine rolling up to Ulladulla Headland Holiday Haven during the bustling late December period and finding a slice of paradise waiting for you. Non-powered camp spots nestled amid lush greenery, providing a front-row seat to ocean vistas that Instagram dreams are made of. But wait, there’s more – a jumping pillow, mini golf, and a water playground that could make any theme park blush. The staff? The friendliest bunch you’ll meet on your camping journey.
