Head into Cresent Head, then before you reach town, follow the sign on the right to Point Plomer. It shortly becomes a rough dirt road so take it slow. You will pass many great surf spots along the way so check them out, but about 10km down the road you will reach the Point Plomer camp site.

This spot works well when the swell is up. We happened to catch it on a long weekend when it was happening in the 5-6 foot range all along the east coast of NSW. On a low tide, look out for large boulders appearing where you want to take off, and be careful where you jump from the point.
For alternatives around the vacinity, check out Back Beach and Race Courses, which leads into Point Plomer from the north, or the more sheltered spots to the south of Fingers which is only a short stroll from Point Plomer, just follow the path. Overall you are guarenteed a good surf in most conditions around this area.
This spot is definately a fun place to stay. It's quite occupied by families in the holiday periods, but there's enough space for everyone. Most importantly there's the experience of surfing uncrowded spots and quite unique surroundings, dolphins often visit here and share a wave or two with you. Have fun
