The Ruins campground and picnic area

Caravan, Camping and Holiday Parks

From rugged campers to casual caravaners, The Ruins campground is the perfect spot for nearly anyone. A beautiful area fringed by cabbage tree palms and paperbarks, it has everything you need, from picnic tables and barbecues to hot showers and drinking water.

But the real charm lies in what’s nearby. Don’t forget your swimmerswhether you prefer the beach or a sheltered lake, both are just a stone’s throw away. Seven Mile Beach offers gorgeous sand and whale watching in the winter. Wallis Lake is perfect for relaxing beneath a tree or launching the kayak for a cool afternoon paddle.

You can even hike along the Booti Hill and Wallis Lake walking track, which includes scenic lookouts and a direct link to Elizabeth Beach – perfect for surfing and seasonally patrolled. Keep your eyes open for graceful shore birds along the challenging walk.

But if all else fails…
