Racecourse campground

Positioned right on Goolawah Beach, Racecourse campground puts you in pole position for exquisite scenic views and marine wildlife spotting. Surrounded by paperbarks and coastal banksia, protected from those gusting southerlies by Racecourse Headland, this beach camping spot is a secluded gem.

Set up your tent or trailer and revel in the feeling of freedom. With few facilities and no distractions, your time is all your own. Try the renowned surf break, go snorkelling or fishing, or see if you can spy a dolphin or two.

Depending on when you visit, you’ll find this beachside campground either relatively empty or awash with surfers and small groups. Summer boasts a lively vibe, while other seasons offer more opportunities for quiet.

In this picturesque part of the world, it’s just as much fun to watch as it is to do. Go birdwatching or whale watching. Sit by the water and gauge the ever-changing mood of the ocean, and get up early to see the sunrise.
