We went to Pebbly Beach during the winter school holidays. At that time of year there were only four or five other campers in the entire area. Pebbly Beach is administered by Nation Parks and there is a fee for each person staying. To get to Pebbly Beach you only need a stock standard 4WD. But just before arrival you will need to negotiate a tidle river (only able to cross at low tide) and then immediately need to climb a very rough sloop. I bottomed out driving up that slop - but made it. On our way home we couldn't leave as that very sloop was blocked by a big 4WD and caravan - he was really stuck. I wouldn't recommend that caravans even attempt to go there. It took about two hours for the 'community' to get them out and back down the hill. I took my opportunity to leave then. The camp site is wonderful, and in winter peaceful. There is plenty of opportunity for photographers. We also did a bit of bird watching and identified many birds and recorded them in our book. There is a pit toilet (which was quite a walk from our camp) and there is no shower facilities. Highly recommended. But in summer, hundreds go there and all tranquillity is lost.
