The Camden Head Pilot Station is a community managed facility in the Camden Haven on the mid north coast of New South Wales, 4.5 hours drive north of Sydney.

The heritage listed property is located at Dunbogan, 6km east of Laurieton. It occupies a magnificent Crown Land beachfront site overlooking Pilot and Wash House Beaches and the Camden Haven River Inlet, and adjoining Kattang Nature Reserve.

The Station, in one form or another, provided navigation assistance from 1890 until its closure in 1990, then fell into disrepair. It is heritage listed as ‘a rare surviving intact group of buildings which provides physical evidence of the living and working conditions of the pilot and boatmen’, and was refurbished in 2001-2002 with assistance from State and Local Government.

It comprises a 1950s style 3 bedroom timber cottage, historic signal shed and former boatshed, set in a bushland recreation reserve.

Today the Pilot Station has a new role, to preserve and enhance cultural and natural heritage and to contribute to community well being. The facility offers a unique venue for:
