The river is a wonderful place for outdoor activities such as fishing, boating, river tours, canoeing and camping. If you have your own boat, there are boat ramps in Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest.
The Myall River Camp is a popular campground because of its isolation and rugged bush setting. The bush camp is located a few kilometres north of Hawks Nest, along a road accessible by conventional vehicles. The campgrounds are set on a large grassy expanse beside the Myall River. There is no power and limited facilities and amenities. This is considered a budget-priced wilderness camp suitable for self-sufficient travellers and those who like to live in nature.
There are a number of businesses offering tours of the river. Most of these moor their boats along Marine Drive. You will find contact details at most moorings. Also check our directory for river cruises.
