Diamond Head: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Diamond Waters Garden


As one of the oldest gardens in both the Camden Haven and Port Macquarie Districts, Diamond Waters Garden is a walk in the rainforest filled with rare and extraordinary plants including giant king ferns, bromeliads, palms, cycads, bamboos, and rare forms of strelitzia. Bring your own picnic.

Set along the Camden Haven River and under the gaze of North Brother mountain, it provides a stunning relaxation spot just 1.2 kilometres from Laurieton.

The garden is a feast of hidden treasures and while you are here you might like to check out the stunning eco Treehouse Retreat, or maybe even book in to stay.

Camden Haven Historical Society Museum


The Camden Haven Historical Society Museum is situated in the beautiful School of Arts building at Laurieton on the NSW Mid North Coast.

The focal point of the museum is the Camden Haven Valley and its villages. It is a work constantly in progress with history, as they say, 'starting with the morning's news'. The Museum Society also sells a range of books on local history.

The Museum is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9am to 1pm.

Dunbogan Boatshed


Dunbogan Boatshed is nestled on the banks of the Camden Haven River. Built in the 1940s, it still carries the charm of an old boatshed, with some new touches - coffee and treats, bait and tackle, fish feeding, kayak, stand-up paddle board, tinny and barbecue boat hire, and marina.

Locals and tourists can enjoy a quality coffee on the deck, while they soak up the view of the yachts on the water, with the breathtaking back drop of North Brother Mountain. You may even catch sight of a dolphin feeding amongst the nearby reeds, while you feed the fish from the deck. Remember to bring your camera.

The best way to experience the water is by kayak or boat, both for the keen fishermen and those who just want to explore. They have a large range of fishing tackle and frozen bait.

Perpendicular Point


The majestic Perpendicular Point with its spectacular vertical cliffs plummeting 40 metres to the sea below, is the main feature of Kattang Nature Reserve. This reserve is surrounded by rock platforms, with the Camden Haven estuary to the north. Perpendicular Point is the best spot in the Camden Haven district to watch whales as they migrate to and from the warmer northern waters. Humpback whales can be seen regularly from May to October while the rarer Southern Right whale can sometimes be seen.

A variety of habitats include rugged and exposed headlands, patches of littoral rainforest, dry eucalypt forest and wet and dry heaths. The reserve was declared in 1983 following the efforts of the local Save the Headland Action Group. The two main walks in the reserve feature great views and wildflowers in season.
