No dogs allowed in Point Plomer, but there are nearby camping grounds outside of the National Park - about 5-10 minutes away - where animals are permitted.
Cheers

Hi Daniel. The road in from Cresent head is an 2wd all-weather road to the campsite. It is an unsealed road (ie gravel and dirt). The road is designed for regular cars to drive on it, but the usual car of driving on un-sealed roads is required.
Enjoy your camping trip.

Hi Jacob, I am not sure how busy this one gets, but generally when there is no booking taken it generally mean you will find a place. But Dec/Jan will be the busy times. Not sure about surf board rental places check out www.yellowpages.com.au for business listings.
Enjoy your trip to Oz.

Andrew J - Towns and Drinking Water IP:203.51.55.xxx | 2009-10-07 00:41:51
Hi, Read that theres no drinking water available on the site? Is that entirely true or is there clean water from taps or something near the bathrooms/Showers? also is there a town closeby to pickup supplies from?

Thanks, Andrew

The water is onsite is Bore water not very nice for drinking OK for washing etc - so it is best to bring water for drinking. It is about 45min drive to Crescent Head and about 1.5hr to Kempsey Happy camping

Hi Jase
You do need a licence for fishing in the park see:http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/NationalParks/parkFacility.aspx?id=N0443
There is a concrete ramp giving access to the sandy beach and a sign saying to stay at the southern end of the beach (so yes you can launch you boat if you can deal with the sand) http://www.wildwalks.com/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=279759
Happy camping

Hi Sean
Standard NSW fishing licence will do the trick.

Hi, I was just wondering if you can camp ON the sand at the beach at Point Plomer, and if not, how far away are the closest camping spots to the beach ?
Aloha IP:124.179.11.xxx | 2011-01-11 07:13:54

Hi Larni
The campsite is close to the beach, the water and sand is visible from some campsites. No camping on the sand, it is not much fun camping on sand anyway, you get sand in everything and you are exposed to the wind.

Hi Aloha
I am not aware of marine stingers as far south as Point Plomer, there is talk of them heading further south, so I guess it is possible. I suggest you look at http://www.marinestingers.com.au and contact them if you have specific questions, as this is out of my league.
As for sharks, again I am no expert but yes there are sharks in the area. http://www.macleayargus.com.au/news/local/news/general/celebration-for-shark-survivor/1836455.aspx
There are many hazards both inside and outside can I suggest that you consider how best to manage the risks these two and many others.
Have a great camping trip
Matt :)

I'm wanting to go camping in the Point Plomer area. But I'm getting conflicting information of the net in regards to camping grounds and costs. So far I have found a Delicate Nobby camping ground, Racecourse Headland camping ground, Point Plomer camping ground and a Melaleuca Camping ground. Are some of these the same places with different names because when I look at the maps they come up in the same places. It's very confusing.

Hi Alicia
These are different campsites in a similar area. It is such a wonderfully popular place to camp, there is so much choice. Just take your time and read through them, you will find one that best suits your needs.

Hi Margaret
I am not sure what it is like at the moment, but it is generally fine. It would be worth keeping an eye on the weather on the day, as it can get slippery after some rain. It would be worth phoning NPWS to book a site since it is just past the school holidays.

i was thinking a camping trip to Point Plomer in the first or second week of January. Is it likely to be crowded and hard to find a space to camp?

Yes, it is likely to be full, it is based on first come basis, you can't book a campsite. Turn up earlier in the day to see, if it is full there are other campsites in the area where you are more likely to find a place (like big hill). It is the busiest time of year.
Hope you find somewhere.
Happy camping

Hi Dell
Great question, I did not notice the sign, not aware of them been closed. I assume you would be safe during summer and Easter school holidays. Outside that might be worth calling NPWS and asking them. Let us know what they say.

Sean - Rd from Port IP:203.10.224.xxx | 2012-02-20 07:48:49
Hi,
We are thinking of driving up from the ferry at Port Maquarie along Point Plomer Rd to Point Plommer Camping ground. We have a Prado 4WD and an off road camper. Is the road accessable or is it over grown with scrub?? Don't want the rig getting too scratched!!
Nick - re Plomer Road IP:166.64.3.xxx | 2012-02-20 15:42:06
There are some big holes/washouts on the road but it is not overgrown and regularly used so you won't get the rig scratched.

Hi Meghan
I am not aware of any age limits on camping here. To be sure it would be best to call the NPWS office.
I hope your camping trip and year 12 goes well for you guys.
