Bouddi National Park is once again welcoming visitors as residents and tourists flock to enjoy nature following the ease of travel restrictions, but if you want to camp out you had better book.
National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) Hunter Central Coast Director, Kylie Yeend, said the July school holidays are a great opportunity for families to get out and about in the region’s national parks and those a little further afield.
“From Bouddi to Booti Booti and out to Barrington, we’re excited to be welcoming visitors to Hunter Central Coast national parks (during) these holidays,” Yeend said.
“While some of our most popular campgrounds, including Putty Beach, Little Beach and Frazer Campgrounds are already heavily booked for Friday and Saturday night camping, there are still weekday bookings available and spaces left at some lesser known but no-less-beautiful campgrounds.
“It’s essential that you book ahead if you are planning to visit a campground in one of our national parks.
“We’re still required to operate our campgrounds in line with the NSW Public Health order including taking steps to limit numbers within each campground or accommodation.
“In meeting the guidelines, every person who is staying in a national park must be registered as part of a booking – so it is important only the number of people declared on your booking turn up on the day.
“We know local business has really taken a hit over the past few months and they are really looking forward to seeing park travellers out and about again.
Yeend said visitors could find more information about NPWS tour operators who deliver guided walks, camping tours, 4WD tag-along tours and other activities on the NPWS website.
“NPWS will continue working hard to open up as many campgrounds as possible for the public to enjoy.”
