Stayed here at Minnie Water on the way back to Sydney . The NP is through the "town" and is quite a nice little place. There are two areas, the first being a smalller area and a little more private, except for the access road to the beach. Both areas have a new set of toilets (drop type) but no showers. No problem for us. There is a turn off before Grafton on the way up or, conversely, on the way back, so you don't actually have to go through Grafton. Right on the beach and worth a look. Please note that there are three different parts to this NP, it spreads from Yamba down towards Coffs. Haven't tried the other bits yet. Jeff

We have been into Station Creek where the campground has pits & tables for which you have to pay NSW-NPWS fees for vehicle, site, and per person per night. For 2 people this can add up to $24 or so. Just a little further south at Corindi Beach (and at Red Rock) there are fabulous Council caravan parks with all facilities, beach access, good walking tracks (including boardwalks) - fees $ 12 per night for a powered site! ....This is further evidence of NPWS apparent agenda of trying to keep people out of National Parks!! Like a branch falls off a paperbark tree in Myall Lakes a kills a fellow who had pitched his tent under the old tree. Result - NPWS closes all camping sites, including caravan sites, and tent sites where there are no trees. Under public pressure they have re-opened some areas, but the fees have gone up! In Victoria, Rangers advise not to pay designated fees into "honour boxes" as the vandals hook up to them and drive off - or, come equipped with oxy gear and cut the top off. They also advise not to pay the ranger as the money may not find NPWS bank deposits. Free bush camps are plentiful provided you can find them. Use good topo maps, air photos, and local pubs, and this BOG site to find them. Cheers.............Rob
