Mungo Brush was a random selection that was made after Corey had read a good review somewhere about it. On the drive over towards the coast from Gloucester we decided we should check it out. It’s one of the first National Park campgrounds that we have had to book and reserve a site.
After stocking up on some groceries, we headed through town and called the Parks hotline to reserve a site on the way out to the campground which was about 20km from Hawks Nest. A huge campground, we could see why it was popular and we ended up with a great site with views of the Myall Lakes.
Located on a peninsula, Mungo Brush had the lake on one side and the ocean on the other as well as some great walking tracks (that do contain snakes as Corey discovered – ugh!).
Unfortunately, not long after we’d had a swim in the lake, thunderstorms rolled in and the next day was cold and grey, so we decided to head into Hawks Nest and have a look around. On a sunny day, the lady at the Information Centre tells us that you’re just about guaranteed to see dolphins about, but unfortunately it was too miserable to spot any so we stopped for some morning tea and a walk along the creek instead.
On the way home, we stopped to check out the beach which was on the other side of some massive sand dunes. Long and white, it was a beautiful beach, although a little bit windy.
The afternoon had improved somewhat weather-wise so Corey took the girls for a swim whilst I watched from the bank (still too cold for this little black duck!).
We would have liked to have stayed another day, but the site we were on was booked and we weren’t going to pack up the van just to move to a site next door. Time to move on again…
Have you been to the Myall Lakes before? Ever had to make a reservation on a camping site?
