Located at the southern intermittent entrance to the Manning River, Farquhar Park offers far more than just a top fishing spot. With the beach just a hop skip and jump away and the calmer estuary waters within metres of your tent. Water sports are limited only due to shallow waters within the estuary but take your pick! Canoeing, swimming, surfing, snorkelling or simply floating around on a lilo. There is plenty of onshore exploring to be done. Why not a day picnic or a wander through the littoral rainforest? If all this is too much for you, simply enjoy the picturesque setting of the area, from the estuary to the littoral rainforest to open sandy beaches. The area is teeming with special (and endangered) birdlife, especially over the summer months.
The camping ground consists of 25 campsites set amongst shady trees. Facilities are limited at this primitive campground, there are composting toilets and two day use shelter areas facing out across the water. Bring all your own supplies including water and take all rubbish away with you.
Camping fees are collected by a caretaker so please bring along the appropriate amount of cash: $25 per site (four person inclusive), $10 per additional adult (16+ years), $5 per additional child (5-15 years), Infants camp for free (0-4 years). Prices are GST inclusive. A site is defined as an area of approximately 8m x 8m for 4 persons per night. No domestic pets.
