Book now

On the eastern shore of Tamboon Inlet, Peachtree Creek is the perfect spot to cast a line off the jetty or simply relax by the water’s edge.

There is neither vehicle nor walking access to the coast, so boats are an excellent way to explore the area. There is a jetty and boat launching ramp right next to the campground.

Peachtree campground features eleven individual sites which are for tents, camper trailers, campervans, caravans and RV's, and there are shared fireplaces throughout. There are non-flushing toilets however there is no onsite drinking water available.

Make sure you bring your own firewood and drinking water – there is no drinking water available in the nearby settlement of Tamboon. Advanced bookings are required.

In addition to Peachtree Creek, there are also remote campgrounds on Tamboon Inlet that are only accessible by boat, canoe or kayak. The Tamboon Inlet Remote Campsites operate on a first in, first served basis.

Change of Conditions

Nature being nature, sometimes conditions can change at short notice. It’s a good idea to check this page ahead of your visit for any updates.

  • Croajingolong National Park

    Closure of the Goanna bay Jetty

    Parks Victoria has recently closed the Goanna Bay Jetty (Mallacoota Inlet) for public safety reasons.
     
    The closure follows condition monitoring of the jetty that raised some concerns about its safety and structural integrity. A subsequent engineering assessment confirmed that the jetty’s condition was no longer safe for visitors. 
     
    The jetty was closed on Friday 10th November and will remain so until further notice. 
     
    Please note that the Goanna Bay day visitor area remains open to the public. However visitors will not be permitted to use the jetty during the closure period and will have to rely on alternative methods of safe access such as beaching or anchoring vessels to the shoreline.
