Camping in Ulladulla – one of our favourite spots in Australia and a little known one at that.  One thing you probably already know about the Achtung Camper team, we prefer free/national park camping – and there’s no-where else in the world that it is easier to do this in than in Australia.   

Having said that, a great paid campground during a quiet camping period can beat a free camping spot anytime – a hot shower, easy dish washing, a playground (if you will use it!). 

We arrived in Ulladulla with a list of free camping possibilities which all looked a bit dicey upon closer inspection. 

We did a tour of the paid campgrounds and were pleasantly surprised with Ulladulla Headland Holiday Haven, we were camping during a busy period (late December) and they had plenty of non powered camp sites free in lovely grassy, shaded areas with ocean views.   

They also had a jumping pillow, bowling green, mini golf and amazing water playground for the kids.  The staff were super friendly and we were pleasantly surprised to

All in all we loved our stay in Ulladulla for a number of reasons: 

It was a great base to explore the beautiful towns above and below (Mollymook and Burrill Lake).  Each of these spots are not to be missed with breaktaking beaches and small town charm.   

There was the possibility of free camping at a lookout above the main carpark at Burrill Lake but we enjoyed the convenience of the Ulladulla campground for it’s close location to amenities and restaurants! 

Ulladulla itself had some nice beaches and the campground was walking distance of the town centre which although not the prettiest had some great little restaurants, we ate Japanese, Chinese and Yum Cha for dinner and all were great!
