I'm looking for help and advice from the folks who know the Forster region. We're planning a camping trip for the spring school holidays (right around Oct 1). We are thinking of camping at Booti Booti National Park, but I can't find a single mention of camping there on trip advisor. The park's website mentions the snakes and goannas that come into the campground, and the surf report talks about the sharks in the ocean--should we take two active kids there to camp, or should we look for another (safer) place?
We're new to Australia so don't have experience recognizing the brown or black/red snakes yet, and I hope never to have to look a shark in the eye.
What do you know about the campground, the seashore there, and Wallis Lake for swimming?
Thanks for your help!
