About

​Camping is available within Strzelecki National Park at the southern end of Trousers Point. This is a delightfully situated site, with a crescent of white sandy beac​​h, clear turquoise waters, and mountainous backdrop.

The beach is sheltered, and great for swimming or snorkelling, and there are a number of pleasant coastal walks nearby.

The site offers basic facilities, including a toilet, rainwater tank, one fireplace area, picnic tables, open areas for tents, information board and rubbish bins. There is also a free gas barbeque at the picnic area.​
