The Shelly Point camping area, day use area Scamander Beach Reserve free camping featuring sheltered sites suit tent camping, small campervans, camper trailers and small caravans – not suited to larger rigs. Facilities are very basic, there is only a pit toilet but the area itself is stunning. Take long walks on the pristine Scamander Beach and try your luck surf fishing with locals, or fish Scamander Jetty in nearby Scamander. To access the Shelly Beach camping and day use area, look for the signs of the A3 Highway, just a short 3km north of Scamander. Campers are welcome to camp in the clearings beside the road but not at the day-use area at the end of the gravel road. To camp Shelly Point, you will need to carry all water and food – fires only with extreme care. Take particular notice of any fire ban warnings. Dogs are not permitted. The Shelly Point Conservation Area is mid-way between St Helens and St Marys, and stretches for a distance of some 12 kilometres. There are many day use options at Scamander Beach Reserve which features beautiful ocean beaches from Dianas Basin south along Beaumauris, Wrinklers and Steels beaches to Hendersons Lagoon. Fishing one of the biggest drawcards, and there are several boat launching places at Scamander River, Paddys Island and Hendersons Lagoon. Surf fishing from the beach is popular in the area. Take extreme care if swimming.
