Access to the campgrounds – Remote soft sand island camping
The camping grounds are completely surrounded by native bushland, with white sand dunes facing the blue Pacific Ocean on the eastern side of the Island and the magnificent Broadwater on the western side.
Campground facilities at North Currigee include a pontoon. However, the gangway is narrow and does not meet current fully accessible standards.
The North Currigee Campground amenities block is not suitable for guests with special access needs.
