What's the latest?


16th December '22 - 2nd February '23

Summer is coming in FAST! We've almost got our Waves Crew sorted and are stoked to welcome everyone for a visit to good old Delicate Nobby beach and soak in some well-deserved rays of warmth! Some periods of the Christmas holidays have booked out, but if you act NOW you can still book in for a wonderful holiday pre-Chrissy or after New Year's! Things are moving fast so don't sit on it for too long.. When you fill out a booking request, give us as many details about you and your mates' camping requirements and we can let you know what's available! Flexibility in dates will definitely help your chances of getting a spot πŸ™‚


and season greetings!
The new cafe is now open and ready to serve you coffees, breakfast & yummy foods from 7am. We are so happy to welcome Jo & Paul and their team and look forward to everything that's to come. For those we won't welcome over the next few weeks, we wish you happy holidays and an adventurous new year with lots of road trips! x the Waves Crew

Waves Campground

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).
