The resident kangaroos are the highlight for every visitor. But being surrounded by the Murramarang National Park and Batemans Marine Park means encounters with a diversity of wildlife that is hard to match. Possums, bandicoots, kookaburras, king parrots, lyrebirds, wallabies are some examples of the bushland wildlife. On the beach you may see dolphins, whales, rare seabirds - and a few keen surfers and scattered fishing enthusiasts. On Durras Lake, birds abound! Pelicans, kingfishers, black swans, sea eagles, herons and more! You can hire a Hobie kayak to explore Durras Lake or walk along its shores. And each night, you can relax around your own campfire or barbecue. Pass me a toasted marshmallow please!

"We had an absolutely great stay - the cabin was comfortable and well equipped and well priced, the position so close to such a wonderful beach was perfect, and the operators couldn't do enough to be helpful. The only negative in the whole weekend was falling into the water and getting soaked!! - but I can't blame that on anyone but me. We will certainly return to the park again and again" Katherine, ACT July 08
"A great place to stay! I had the most enjoyable stay at this beautiful place. The cottages were super clean and there was so much to do. The kids loved the lake and the beach and we all enjoyed sitting around the fire in the evening. As I love walking I was very impressed with the walks around the park. Peter and Wendy were able to point out many fantastic walks where I saw heaps of wildlife and made my walks even more enjoyable" Jenny. Nowra 2008
"Wow! This place was a real surprise. Really different to most caravan parks we have stayed at. Our overseas guests couldn't believe the wildlife. We saw kangaroos, kookaburras, parrots and had two possums raid our camp. We recommend it it to anyone that wants to experience the Australian bush which surrounds the place. We went for a walk along the beach and saw no one! Just lovely. We will certainly be visiting again" Mick and Diane Ford. Gymea. 2008
