Visit Camden Haven

The Camden Haven area on the NSW Mid North Coast offers a great range of accommodation from tent sites in our great holiday parks to luxury tree houses and B & Bs. There are also motels, self-catering apartments and holiday houses. The beautiful Camden Haven is located thirty minutes south of Port Macquarie and forty minutes north of Taree. This ‘Valley of Villages’ hugs the Camden Haven River as it makes its way from the lush Comboyne Plateau to the blue Pacific Ocean. As the river meanders through this magnificent valley it passes through the villages of Lorne, Kendall, Kew, Laurieton, Dunbogan, entering the sea between North Haven and Camden Head. Bonny Hills lies to the north overlooking Grants & Rainbow beaches. Just a further five minutes north is Lake Cathie (pronounced Cat-eye) with its beautiful lake, lagoon and beaches. In the south, on the Stewarts River (a tributary of the Camden Haven River) you will find the villages of Johns River and Hannam Vale and their beautiful rural surrounds.

A key drawcard of the district is the myriad of waterways which make up the Camden Haven Inlet. Watson Taylors Lake, Queens Lake, Pilot Beach and Gogleys Lagoon are some of the natural features which are home to an abundance of marine and bird life. One of the best ways to experience the Camden Haven is aboard the vessel Far-Lap; its shallow draft and low profile allow it to navigate a large area of the districts beautiful waters.

When visiting be sure to call into the iKew Visitor Information Centre at Kew, the ‘Gateway’ to the Camden Haven.
