Approaching the middle of winter might have you longing for a family getaway. Don’t put it off any longer – start planning an affordable and adventurous winter break at one of our many top spots at NSW national parks along the coast.

You can pass the days whale watching, touring historic lighthouses, walking or cycling scenic tracks, then curl up and spend a cosy evening by the fire.

There are all manner of cute and cosy cabins in coastal national parks just ready and waiting for your visit.

Here’s our pick of the cosiest cabins.

Pretty Beach cabins

Pretty Beach cabins on the beautiful south coast offer lovely bush views just a stone’s throw from the beaches of Murramarang National Park. With abundant wildlife including kangaroos and native birds, and nearby beaches for walking, whale watching, fishing and surfing, it’s the perfect family getaway.

While you’re there, you could stroll or power-walk the Pretty Beach to Snapper Point walking track, or try the more challenging Pretty Beach to Durras Mountain walking track.

You can explore the remarkable cliffs, headlands and pristine beaches of the NSW south coast while you keep a lookout for, seals and dolphins.

What about kayaking, sightseeing or cycling? Check out all the other ideas in the Batemans Bay area to help brainstorm your itinerary.

Depot Beach cabins

Depot Beach cabins are nestled between spotted blue gum trees and the golden sands of Depot Beach in Murramarang National Park.

Scan for the annual whale migration from the quaint Depot Beach picnic area or explore the Rock Platform walk at low tide to discover a fascinating marine world.

Fall asleep to the sounds of rustling gum leaves or crashing waves, then wake up and prepare a delicious barbecue breakfast.

Woody Head cabins

Further north at Bundjalung National Park, you’ll find Woody Head cabins nestled between the rainforest, river and beach, offering rustic charm and a no-fuss holiday option. The idyllic location lends itself to exploring the golden beaches that stretch for miles, providing perfect whale watching vantage points.

Families can also enjoy canoeing down the nearby Esk River paddle route – with prime birdwatching opportunities. Or get up higher at the Iluka Bluff lookout to take in the entire Bundjalung area, including Woody Head. It’s a great spot to picnic and comb the seas for whales and dolphins.

The best part is, until the end of September, you can stay three nights for the price of two at any of these cosy cabins! All these coastal deals should tempt you to get organising, and it’s easy to book your family coastal adventure at Wild About Whales.
