Located a little over a three-hour drive from Sydney in a beautiful and somewhat remote part of the New South Wales’ mid-north coast is Treachery Beach. You’ll have a hard time finding phone reception once you pass the ‘The Last Frontier’ signs painted on the road as you enter the township of Seal Rocks – but that’s part of its charm.
It’s a great place to swim, surf, fish or just kick back and relax. The Treachery Headland Walk is also a nice way to explore the surrounding area, and takes in the Sugarloaf Point Lighthouse, headland and parts of the Myall Lakes National Park.
Treachery Camp, a free-form camp ground located on 38 acres of rugged coastal bushland, is a good place to base yourself and guests don’t need to do more than check into their cabin, pitch their tent or park their caravan before walking over a big sand dune to directly access the pristine Treachery Beach. It almost feels like a private beach.
We stayed in Pearl, a total sweetheart of a vintage caravan. She’s a delightful, fully-renovated yellow/white 1965 Sunliner Caravan run by the lovely folk behind Sunny Stays.
The hack? Treachery Beach is a little piece of paradise that you should visit real soon.
