Recovering from floods
The campground got flooded badly in March. Many areas were unusable and our beautiful beach was quite the mess.
Thankfully we are operating as normal again with all our usual facilities and wonderful Autumn weather to enjoy.
However, some areas of the campground will remain closed to be able to recover and regenerate as best as possible. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you soon.
Thanks, Kit + Anna + Richard + Waves Crew
Covid-19 Corona update
We have made some changes to the way Waves operates to ensure we follow government guidelines. Please read this document for our most recent conditions of stay and policies. As part of these changes we are discouraging the use of the shared cooking facilities in our camp kitchen, need to limit our numbers inside the bathrooms and are preferring pre-bookings with payment in full by direct deposit.
We recommend all guests to bring their own cooking equipment, ample hand soap, sanitiser and perhaps (plastic) table cloths.
Camping has never been more popular and we are grateful for the ongoing support of new & return guests. Due to the increased traffic it is taking us longer to respond to booking requests and some booking periods are now closed. There is now also a 2-night minimum for weekend bookings (Fri-Sun). Please read the booking request guidelines before submitting.

Waves is a professionally managed, super friendly, down to earth campground that prides itself on customer service. We’re blessed by the location and environment and pleased to give our guests great facilities at very affordable rates. Since September 2015 we have been operating under new ownership and management; the new owner is experienced in running a successful tourist accommodation in Port Macquarie. We highly value the regular positive reviews and great customer feedback we receive. To us, this is the greatest accomplishment. We can't wait to meet you, help you relax, enjoy, surf, fish, walk, breathe in the spectacular natural environment and smile (a lot).
