Munmorah State Conservation Area

GPS Waypoint            Watch Video

Munmorah State Conservation area is located at the Northern end of the NSW Central Coast between The Entrance & Swansea. This area is on Awabakal Country and although Central Coast Council recognises it as Darkinjung Country NSW National Parks & Wildlife acknowledge the true traditional owners. 

Munmorah State Conservation Area is an amazing day out for campers, Bush Walkers, Beach goers, fisherman and much more. Birdie Beach and Frazer Beach are great spots to stop for a swim with the Northern end of Birdie Beach being an Unclad (Clothing Optional) section. Frazer Beach also has a lovely lagoon at the back of the beach which is a nice spot to escape the waves or for young kids to play around in safer waters. 

This beautiful National Park also includes many walking trails such as the Geebung Walking Trail, Timber Beach Trail and more.

The longest single trail would be the Geebung Walking Trail at approximately a 4km return trip. If you do the loop like I have done and return via the road at Wybung Heads you also get to take in the stunning views from Wybung Trig Point which cover much of the Central Coast and Lake Macquarie region. All walking trails are pretty easy and mostly well marked and maintained, Timber Beach Trail is one of the shortest walks although probably the most difficult.

Munmorah State Conservation Area also includes Paid Camping at the Frazer Campground & Freemans Campground although Caravan/Camper or with Vehicle camping is only available at the Freemans Campground. At both campgrounds there are BBQ's to use along with others located at the Tea Tree Picnic Area near Birdie Beach and the Palm Tree Picnic Area near Frazer Beach. 

Fishing is also popular in Munmorah although Wybung Heads and Snapper Point are both infamously dangerous spots with many lives being lost at both. Life Jackets are MANDATORY if you plan to fish these locations and make sure to check the conditions before heading out. 

So make sure you pack your swimmers, or not, pack the camera and pack a picnic lunch and head off to check out this amazing little part of the Central Coast. 

Munmorah State Conservation Area does require an $8/vehicle access fee with ticket booths at all car parks or annual passes available from the National Parks & Wildlife website.
