We managed to escape on a mini holiday when the Mr's work took him close to the coast. We beat the summer holiday rush with it's peak rates and had a great time. We stayed at Arakoon State Recreation Park right next door to South West Rocks. Our tent site cost us $27 per night (off peak rate) and we were nestled in below Trial Bay Gaol, which was a fantastic wind break. We were also less than 100 metres from the beach.
