Caravan, Campervan and Motorhome Owners
The Central Coast Council welcomes all caravan, campervan and motorhome owners to the Central Coast area. Whilst the Council encourages you to utilise the various Caravan Parks located in Turners Beach, Ulverstone, West Ulverstone and Penguin, it has passed a resolution to allow campervans and motorhomes to rest for up to 48 hours in any of the rest areas within the municipal area.
Preferred Rest Areas:
The Council has not defined any specific rest areas but it has identified a number of preferred areas for the use of visitors to our municipal area:
Lions Park, Penguin - off Penguin Road opposite the junction with Crescent Street; - note: limited to sealed area at end of roadway;
PreservationBay - on the eastern side of the Penguin Surf Club; Please note that the Surf Club Building and associated seats and tables is not available for use by overnight visitors.
Hall Point, Sulphur Creek - note: no dogs are allowed in this area as it is the location of a penguin colony; and
Unsuitable Rest Areas:
There are some areas that have been designated as unsuitable for overnight stays and are signposted either as 'no camping' or 'no overnight stays'. These areas include:
Esplanade, Turners Beach; and
Dial Street, Ulverstone.
The Council has provided wastewater dumpstations at:
Victoria Street (northern end), Ulverstone; and
Stubbs Point (on Johnsons Beach Road), Penguin
We would urge you to utilise the dumpstations provided and to leave the rest areas in at least the same, if not better, state than you found them in.
