Yep, this South Coast NSW park has its very own brewery. Occupying space in a converted heritage building, Camel Rock Brewery features delicious, handcrafted brews backed by a solid wine list and top tucker. No Uber needed.
What: Dining area and poolside café.
The park’s alfresco dining space and neighbouring café are perfect for enjoying a tipple or two. Or nab a poolside cabana and sip on a cocktail. In addition, there are food options galore, breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
