With over 250 acres of native bush, the property is full of wildlife, including heaps of kangaroos. We are right on the water at North Arm Cove and have a salt water river running right through the property which is full of fish and is great for water activities including, boating and canoeing. We also have a resort-style swimming pool with a bush diving tower!
We offer 5 very basic bush-style cabins with beds only. These are located around our bonfire area which is the hub of activity at the camp. Nearby is the amenities block with unlimited hot water for showers and fully-flushing toilets.
You can also pitch a tent on our land if you would prefer to sleep outside. If you have your own tent it's only $10pp each night, while we can happily provide you with a tent and two air mattresses for only $20pp per night.
Our camp has a different vibe depending on the season - if you are thinking of coming at a busy time and are looking for a quiet getaway then the cabins are probably not for you. On the other hand, if you like to be amongst the action and like a bit of a party then it's the best place to stay.
Bulga Creek Bush Camp is the real Australian bush experience, with our own small rainforest nearby. Between the nearby surfing, fishing and whale and dolphin watching, we have something for everyone!
This is truly a great place for a stopover on your way up the coast. The bus stops near here in Karuah or the Rock Roadhouse, and all buses heading up north to Queensland and south to Sydney go right past our gate.
We offer free drop-off and pick-up to these bus stops - just let us know when you will arrive so we can be there!
From North Coast/Queensland:
Follow the Pacific Hwy south towards Sydney and travel through Buladelah. When you get to the Tea Gardens/Hawks Nest exits go past it and turn into the Rock Roadhouse/United Petrol Station. You will see Gooreengi Rd running parallel to the Pacific Hwy - take that road and follow it for 5 km and you will see our gate on the left hand side.
From Nelson Bay:
Take the Ferry to Tea Gardens and we will pick you up.
From Sydney, Brisbane or Newcastle:
Ask to get off at the Karuah Mobile Petrol Station - all buses travelling up the Pacific Hwy stop there and we will pick you up at any time you arrive.
