The national park has a walk track up Hat Head mountain. A days outing take some water and walk the edge or to the top, if its low tide you can cross the creek to get back into Hat Head car van park.

I feel it's a bit unfair to single out Hat Head National Park but honestly, we have stayed in quite a few NP campsites in NSW and you do not get anything for your dollar (except some ambience if it's quiet). After leaving the dustbowl...More
