Coledale Camp Site Logo

Coledale Camping Reserve

The surf club operates a small and unique grassy campsite that borders right onto the golden sand. Coledale beach is beautifully sandwiched between the rolling blue surf of the pacific and the rolling green tree canopy of the Illawarra escarpment.

Just 1 hour south of Sydney CBD, the small beachside village of Coledale is accessed by the spectacular Grand Pacific Drive via the stunning Sea Cliff Bridge.

Well serviced from Sydney and the south coast by city rail trains and with regular local bus services. The stunning beach is bordered north and south by rocky outcrops that protect the beach from the worst of the weather, as well as offering excellent fishing spots. The beach is a great surfing spot, with the right conditions offering nice right and left hand breaks. Never as crowded as other comparable surf spots, Coledale Beach is a great location to enjoy the beach, swim, surf, fish, dive or just sit back, enjoy the views and sound of the surf at your doorstep. Regular visits by dolphins playing just off the beach and close views of migrating humpback and southern right whales just add to the experience.

The Coledale Surf Life Saving Club Inc. manages the Camping Reserve under the License from Wollongong City Council.

Coledale village

The village itself offers a range of shops and eating-places including RSL, Scarborough Wombarra Bowling Club (The Bowlo) cafe, takeaway and more formal dining. Other local centers of Austinmer, Thirroul, Stanwell Park and Bulli are great to shop, eat, drink or browse amongst the galleries and boutiques

Ideally positioned for short breaks from Sydney or for visitors to the area that want to be close to the attractions of Sydney, yet away from the hustle and bustle and close to nature (or for those on a tighter budget). Camping at Coledale beach offers a great location and a unique holiday experience.
