Located in the mid north coast of New South Wales, Camden Haven boasts spectacular coastal and valley views, extensive waterways for boating and fishing, sweeping surf beaches, forest, bush and abundant birdlife. Camden Haven is one of a number of small towns and communities that gather around the point where the Camden Haven River runs into the Pacific Ocean. These quaint river towns have a laid back feel and attitude, making it a perfect place to take a holiday.

One of the most popular attractions, North Brother, is part of Dooragan National Park. Enjoy one of the best views on the NSW coast or do the short rainforest walk around the summit. North Brother Mountain is significant in both Australian and European history. A Dreamtime legend describes how three brothers met their fate at the hands of an evil witch and it is believed that they are buried beneath each of the mountains referred to as the Three Brothers.

Drive through Laurieton and Dunbogan and on to Camden Head, the home of Kattang Nature Reserve. Fifty-eight hectares of coastal bush bordered by the sharp vertical cliffs of Perpendicular Point await. June and July are great for bird and whale watching while August and September are spectacular for wildflowers.
