Koybaa camping area
This camping area at Griffiths Point, 4 km past the ranger station, has 12 small sites surrounded by scrub. They are only suitable for tent-based camping because you have to carry your gear in past a row of bollards. From these sites it is only a short walk to the beach, but you need to be careful of strong currents around the rocks or in the estuary, especially when the tide is going out.

This campsite is located in Narawntapu National Park
Within this long coastal park - the first in Tasmania to adopt its Aboriginal name - there are wide beaches, lagoons packed with birdlife, open plains crowded with animals and an excellent information centre. The abundance of wildlife to be seen here at dusk is remarkable, with dozens of wallabies and wombats coming out to feed each evening. It is also significant for its human history, with evidence that people have lived here for perhaps 30 000 years. Most camping areas in the park have fireplaces with some firewood supplied, although gas/fuel stoves are recommended. Narawntapu is 40 km east of Devonport via the B71, or 85 km north of Launceston via the West Tamar Hwy (A7).
