STOCKTON BEACH - CAMPING

Postby bludgerswife » Thu Aug 28, 2008 11:28 am

STOCKTON BEACH CAMPING.

As you may be aware Stockton Beach is now part of the Worimi Conservation Lands and the National Parks & Wildlife Service now are co-managers of this area. This occurred on the 10th February 2007.

There appears to be some confusion with people not being aware of the new requirements for camping in this area.

To clarify and explain the requirements for camping at Stockton Beach.

• Camping is allowed within 100 metres of the High Tide mark.
• Wood Fires are allowed, but should be contained by use of an arrangement, such as a brassier, and timber should brought in by the campers.
• As there are no on site toilet facilities, the use of pit toilet facilities are not permitted. NPWS are requiring the use of campers own facilities such as “port-a-loos” for each group of up to 6 persons. All waste must be removed from the Conservation Area and not buried.


Please be aware that Rangers are on duty all hours and do patrol the area.
More information is available on the website:

http://www2.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/pa ... kton+Bight

The requirements for driving on the beach remain the same.

Should you encounter others abusing the area, please report the incidents immediately to the Rangers on duty on telephone number 0407 263 614. Do not directly confront the persons concerned but just report the incidents, making note of any vehicle registration details.
Rangers also are equipped with UHF radios, and contact may be established by this means, but at this stage it is not certain if a dedicated channel is in use.

Thanks for that info Ros. The guidlines do seem strict but conservation has priority here. Who's going to volunteer to tow the porta-loo around?
