My Favourite Free Camp – Policemans Point

Instead of going to Binnalong Bay we decided to skip the crowded campgrounds and head up to the northern end of Bay of Fires which is a little more remote. We decided to stop in at Policeman’s Point and I’m so glad we did.

We set up our rig on a sand bank, literally 2 metres from the water, with the most stunning views we’ve ever had at a campground. We were a good distance from our nearest neighbors so it was like we had the whole place to ourselves, bliss!

As dusk fell and the tides went out a pelican flew right up to me and just paddled around. Pelicans are huge! I had no idea!

I was in the middle of doing my teeth and hubby yelled out that he saw a whale. He pointed out to a spot and then yelled “there, did you see it?” nope, I didn’t have my glasses on. I scrambled around in the glove box, grabbed them and put them on, just in time to see another one.

We believe they were orca whales as they had the large dorsal fins sticking up like a shark but weren’t sharks as a number of them passed in a pod bobbing up and down. There are a number of seals in the area, which they eat apparently.

 

So much wildlife at Policemans Point.

Perfect location, pelicans and whales and it’s a free campground, you couldn’t ask for better!

    Sounds fantastic! We haven’t been to that part of the state yet. Was access possible to that site by 2WD, or was it a 4WD only track?

      It was an amazing area and I can’t recommend it enough! The track wasn’t too bad, it was like a farm track. But, there were a number of caravans there so the track can’t be too bad. Also the track wasn’t very long. We did go via dirt roads from St Helens but the track into the camping area wasn’t far. The sites further into the camp area would require a 4×4; however, the sites at the entrance, and there were plenty, should be easily accessible as that’s where the caravans were. All sites are pretty secluded. I hope that helps?
