This beach has much to offer…
Munmorah State Conservation Area is about 40 km north of Gosford and covers 1515 hectares.
The park is mainly used for recreation and preservation of the flora. Here you can enjoy picnicking, camping and bushwalking, as well as visiting several untouched beaches...
One these beautiful beaches is the sheltered 400-metre Frazer Beach. It's worth visiting if you want to get away from it all and relax.
Lifeguards patrol the beach in the summer holidays and Easter only. Take great care if you swim when there are no lifeguards; there are a couple of rips and strong current. (This stretch of coast is notoriously treacherous.) But there’s also a calm lagoon if you want to have a dip.
This place is very popular with surfers. The surf is reliable, and since the beach is secluded, few surfers visit.
This spot is sheltered from the strong north-easterly winds that can blow strong in summer.
There are picnic tables near the water. It’s a nice place to have a picnic.
Fishing here is very popular too:
Snapper Point, a few hundred metres north, is one of the most popular fishing spots. Be very cautious if you fish at Snapper Point – It can be a dangerous spot. You must be experienced and know the local conditions.
You can also fish from the rock platform at the beach.
The beach has few facilities:
There are toilets, but no cafe or food kiosk. Also, keep in mind that mobile coverage is limited. I didn’t have any phone reception when I visited.
If you like camping right in nature and near the beach, Frazer Campground is a few metres away (below).
If you’d like to explore Munmorah State Conservation Area, you can bushwalk, walk or drive to other secluded beaches, picnic areas and lookouts...
These bushwalks are located nearby:
Some of these bushwalks above pass near secluded beaches and lookouts.

Here’s the official guide for visiting Munmorah State Conservation Area. It’s well-detailed map of the national park.
Frazer Beach is not widely known yet, but it has so much to offer. It’s definitively one of my top beaches on the Central Coast.
Looking for a secluded campsite by the beach near Sydney?
Frazer Campground is located at Frazer Beach and in the bushland of Munmorah State Conservation Area.
The beach is only metres away from the campsite.
The camping ground is right in the bush, it overlooks the ocean and you fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves.
You can access the campground with your car. All roads are sealed.
There are barbecue and picnic tables right beside the campground, and toilets and cold showers are a few metres away.
You need to be self-sufficient with food and drinking water (but bore water is available).
The closest supermarket is Woolworths Lake Munmorah 15 minutes away.
Keep in mind that mobile reception is limited. I couldn't use my phone when I stayed. But there's an emergency phone in case you need it.
There are 6 grassy, shoulder-to-shoulder, unpowered tent sites. If you camp outside school holidays or weekends, you may have the whole campground to yourself.
Site 1 is in a great position. It's the closest to and has a clear view of the beach. But it may also get more traffic coming in and out since it's beside the campsite's entrance.
Site 6 is at the very back of the campground next to the Frazer Valley.
Pets and campfires are prohibited.
Located 1 hr 40 min north of Sydney via the M1 or 50 min south of Newcastle via Pacific Highway. Once in the national park, the directions to Frazer Campground are well signposted. Parking in the national park costs $8. To get here follow the directions on Google Map.
