Dianas Basin camping area
This lovely camping area has a lagoon on one side and Beaumaris Beach on the other. Swim, surf, fish or head north or south along the beach for hours of beachcombing. You may bring your dog to the camping area but not to the beach. The camping sites, sheltered amongst the coastal scrub, are large enough for big rigs. Turn off the Tasman Hwy (A3) onto a dirt road at the sign to Dianas Basin, 9 km south of St Helens. The road forks 500 m further on; go left to campsites beside the lagoon or continue right another 900 m to campsites with better shade closer to the beach. You will need to bring your own firewood and water.

This campsite is located in St Helens Point Conservation Area
This 1066 ha reserve on the southern side of Georges Bay encompasses scenic St Helens Point, and offers excellent fishing, paddling, shoreline walks and birdwatching, as well as great surfing and swimming at Beerbarrel Beach. The extensive dunes stretching south along Maurourard Beach are a photographer’s paradise and great fun for bodyboarders, plus there is an area set aside at Peron Dunes for 4WD action.
