Hungry Gate, 5km south of Hat Head, offers a beautifully back-to-basics holiday among native figs and paperbarks. The campground operates on a first-in basis; a ranger will come around and collect fees. There are non-flush toilets, but bring your own drinking water and gas cooker/BBQ. Kangaroos provide entertainment, but be sure to keep your food secure from them.
The beach is a 20-minute walk.
