Mogo Wildlife Park is part of the small rural village of Mogo located South of Batemans Bay on the South Coast of New South Wales. The Monaro and Yuin people have significant heritage in the area with many Aboriginal sites and features being identified. In the language of the Yuin people the word ‘Mogo’ is said to mean ‘Stone Axe and large camping ground’. The Aboriginal history of the area includes locations such as Tomakin and Barlings Beach where Aboriginal families tell of the significant spiritual and cultural associations of this area. After white settlement Mogo became well known for the Gold Rush of the 1850’s and settlers creating a new era for the region. Sydney, Melbourne, and Canberra residents have been escaping to the South Coast for decades.

Your overnight camping experience includes everything.

Our tents already erected on site, stretcher beds to maximum weight 120kg (larger beds are available which you can confirm when booking online) with linen plus enjoy our group animal encounter on arrival. Due to Covid we recommend you bring your own sleeping bag and pillow. You have the option to order a sleeping bag at the time of booking online however this has an additional fee to cover our dry cleaning. During your visit to our campsite, you will hear about our local history, enjoy our prepared dinner and live campfire music. Our overnight camping is BYO but we do not encourage excessive drinking of alcohol. We encourage all guests to be in their tents no later than 9:30 so they can enjoy the sounds of the wildlife park. The following morning enjoy tea/coffee to start your day followed by breakfast overlooking the Sumatran Tiger then full entry to Mogo Wildlife Park which includes Giraffe feeding.

We suggest you book your overnight camping adventure now as we have limited room on our campsite.
