A secluded paradise in the middle of nowhere
In the depths of the Ben Boyd National Park a hidden gem lays, in complete remoteness and seclusion Saltwater Creek is situated.

The short easy walk from the carpark...

You will certainly feel more than a million miles away from civilisation here, with nature at its finest, lush bushland surrounding the region and crystal clear waters with multiple hues of blues... there is really no other place like it!

Saltwater Creek is located on the picturesque Sapphire Coast of New South Wales near the quaint, marina town of Eden, which is around six hours drive from Sydney CBD.

View of the creek with surrounding lush bushland...

This is certainly a place you will love with the remote and secluded area, bringing romance to the air or that perfect serenity with the family.

The dramatic coastal setting of Saltwater Creek is one not to pass up on a road or day trip, with lush bushland surrounding the creek and beach as well as being the gateway to many spectacular bushwalks.

There is so much to see, do and explore here with several shallow lagoons, pristine beach tempting you for a swim, snorkel or surf, plenty of fishing spots and of course put on the hiking boots and explore the coastline by foot.

You will also be welcomed with an abundance of wildlife and birdlife here, making it perfect for birdwatching as well as wildlife spotting, so be sure to bring the binoculars!

What a lovely view...

Camping is also a treat at Saltwater Creek, with it being remote and secluded, making it the ideal getaway.

To get to Saltwater Creek, turn off Princes Hwy onto Edrom Rd (18km south of Eden) take a right turn into Green Cape Rd and drive approximately 8km then turn left into Duckhole Rd, then right into Saltwater Creek Rd until you reach the signpost saying Saltwater Creek Campground.
