    Crowdy Head National Park is always a nice area to visit, and whilst we haven't been there many times, we have always enjoyed our stays. We've never stayed at Indian Head before, but will check it out next time.

    Thanks for the report and pics Glenn.

    No booking required.You pay your fees at Diamond Head and then pick your spot. No formal camp sites

    Looks like a great spot Glenn, and the "locals" obviously love it too

    I was up that way this weekend. We loaded up in Harrington then proceeded north dropping in at the camp grounds on the way up (crowdy gap, Kylies, Indian head and Diamond head) all of them a quite nice and we ended up staying at kylies Camp ground and it was mint. Cold showers provided, 2 toilet blocks, plenty of room, plenty of wildlife, 4wd beach access.
    Only negatives were horse flies, only a few fish in the ocean and coming home
