Dock Inlet

Immerse yourself in the tranquility of Dock Inlet, a exclusive land locked expanse of fresh water isolated from the coast by a coastal dune barrier. The inlet is fed by the east and west branches of Dock Creek from a unspoiled catchment. The shallow tannin coloured waters support a various range of waterfowl.

You may even be lucky enough to spot the White-bellied Sea Eagles that are often seen in the area.


There is no vehicle access to the Dock Inlet camp area. Access is by foot or by cycling along a long sandy track from Pearl Point Road or Yeerung Road. There is also access via the beach from Cape Conran or Pearl Point.


Distance from Bemm River – approx. 8kms to the gate, then approx.3 kms from the gate into the Inlet.
