The Point of Free Camping ~ Point Gibbon


Point Gibbon free camp has made it to our favourites list for its location and for the spectacular scenery which included pristine white sand dunes to explore, an easily accessible beach to fish from and visits by large pods of dolphins, swimming by each day.

This is another council maintained camping area with a decent dirt road entrance and plenty of spaces on the cliff top to park a van and be completely secluded for $10 per night.
