The first place to visit Wallaga Lake is Camel Rock Beach.


Where is Camel Rock Beach?

You look for the sign to turn off Wallaga Lake Road to Camel Rock Beach.  From the car park, you can walk to the beach.


The Drive from Narooma

On the drive from Narooma to Bermagui. You can take the Bermagui Road which turns onto Wallaga Lake Road.

Then, you cross over a one-lane bridge with the water from Lake Wallaga on either side of you. I wasn't expecting to find myself driving on a road with water on either side of me.

You will find a few of these one-lane bridges in this area. If there is a vehicle coming over the bridge, you wait until they have crossed over it. And, you will cross over lakes and creeks as they exit the bays and ocean.

Camel Rock

I loved being there.

You can stand by the rocks, When the tide is out, you can see these geological structures.

Camel Rock

The first time I went to Camel Rock, the tide was in more. So, I only walked up close to it.

On a subsequent visit, the tide was out. So, when the tide is low, you can walk around the rock further along the beach.

You can imagine my surprise when I realized there looked to be more than one big rock.

On one of the drives to the car park. An echidna was walking out of the shrubs onto the dirt road. I stopped. Then, it dashed back into the bush.

Imagine you are up close to the rock. And, you feel how close you can be to the rocks at low tide.

Hear the sounds of being at the Beach. The waves hit against the rocks.

The Beach at Camel Rock

Feel the fresh breeze on your face as it blows. As your feet sink into the sand, they feel heavy as you walk along.


Almost all to yourself

In the distance, there are only two other peeps at the beach.

You have a sense of all this expanse of nature belongs to only you at this moment.

Now, there it is. You walk in the sand towards the rocks.

What do you experience when you walk behind the rock?


What does it feel like?

To have this all to yourself at this moment seems to stop in time. What does it make you feel like?

Away from all the hustle and bustle of living in the city. Your heart skips a beat or two.

And, your heart sings in the joy of this experience. You watch the video. You are reminded that you want to experience it again.

The sunset peaks out for something like 5 seconds and disappears again. And, appears on the rear hump.


Sun shining on Camel Rock

There I was, standing on the viewing platform. Which is near the car park amongst the bushes.

One minute I'm looking at Camel Rock. All of a sudden, the sun comes out.

And, it shines a small patch on the back top of Camel Rock.  It only lasted for a few seconds. Then, it was gone again.

Do you like to watch sunsets at the beach?
