While visiting South Durras on the coast of NSW (near Bateman's Bay) we stayed for a few nights at the  BIG4 South Durras Holiday Park which is located on Beagle Bay Road.  What a lovely little park across the road from the beach and a great base to explore the area including Murramarang National Park.  
 
Outside the caravan park is a walking/cycling track leading towards Durras Lake in one direction and the headland overlooking Beagle Bay in the other. Of Course you can take one of the walking tracks and go straight to the beach - a great spot to watch the sun rise or dolphins frolicking up and down the coast. 

Within the community of South Durras you will  find a general store selling a range of essential items and serving pizzas several night a week.  In another section of South Durras are a group of houses overlooking Durras Lake which is a wonderful spot for swimming, fishing, canoeing or SUPboarding.  The calm waters of Durras Lake are protected by forest and this is regarded as one of the purest estuaries on the east coast. North Durras can be seen across the other side of the lake.

We also spent some time looking around the Murramarang Resort while staying in the area - enjoyed a coffee at Skippy's Takeaway by the pool.  As well as the takeaway you will find a bar and bistro which are open at various times of the day depending on the season - open to the public as well as guests of the Resort. Murramarang Resort is large with a range of cabins, caravan sites and camping areas located on the beach overlooking the beautiful Beagle Bay. 

South Durras and Murramarang National Park are well known for images of kangaroos on the sandy beaches and we were not disappointed during our stay with a number of these beautiful creatures appearing early morning and late afternoon or just lazing in the shade at the BIG4 park.  We were also lucky enough to see a range of native birds including Lorikeets and Crimson Rosellas - one was building a nest in the tree above our van.  

Unfortunately time did not allow us to explore the National Park and the large number of unspoiled beaches between South Durras and Bateman's Bay. I understand the National Park is full of beautiful spotted gums that run right  to the sea and offer the chance to walk through landscape that has been here for hundreds of years - another reason to return to this beautiful area of NSW.
