NB: You will require a Vehicle Access Permit $43.60 per vehicle. This can be purchase when you make yr ferry booking.



Travel to Comboyuro Point

When leaving the ferry, turn left and head north along the western/bayside beach. Bit of a slog but beach is still passable at high tide. Distance to travel is ~12km. Campground entrance is just past the Bulwer wrecks. Obey speed limits and drink driving provisions as police will no doubt be active on the island over this weekend.


CAUTION: Be cautious at creek crossings especially either side of high tide.

NB: Beach is closed to all vehicles at Cowan Cowan. Head inland and follow the Cowan Cowan Bypass that goes around behind this township.

UNSURE ? : Let Trip Leader know yr barge arrival time & I'll be at the barge to meet you.
