The 4 Best Secret Camping Spots Around Queensland

The 4 Best Secret Camping Spots Around Queensland

The Christmas holidays are fast approaching, and you know what that means: camping! It’s time for summer, mozzies, sun and sand. 

Whether you want to go to the bush and get away from civilisation, explore an ancient rainforest or mountain range, or even hit the beach, Queensland has plenty of options when it comes to camping. 

In peak times like the Christmas break, it can be difficult to find a quiet, peaceful spot to camp. Caravan parks can get crowded and noisy, and often book out early. Also, since the borders are currently closed, more people are looking at holidaying in Queensland rather than travelling further. 

The good news is we know some secret camping spots where you can have a relaxing getaway. Here’s our 4 best secret camping spots for you to explore:

1. Charlie Moreland Camping Ground

Kenilworth, Sunshine Coast Hinterland

Hidden in the hinterland,Charlie Moreland Camping area  is perfect for getting away from it all. It’s accessible by 4WD only, and has limited facilities, so you’ll have to bring your own water. 

Located on the edge of Conondale National Park, this campsite is full of nature and wildlife. There are also nearby hiking trails and creeks to explore.

2. Boreen Point Campground

Noosa North Shore

The tranquil Boreen Point Campground is located on the shores of Lake Cootharaba, off the Noosa river. Catch the ferry over and pitch your tent on the sand. It’s perfect for fishing, kayaking, and swimming. This area is more peaceful than camping in Noosa Heads, however it doesn't offer many amenities. 

3. Bigriggen Park

Scenic Rim

Located in the foothills of Mount Maroon between the towns of Rathdowney and Boonah, Bigriggen campground is perfect for immersing yourself in nature. There’s acres of bush, towering gum trees and a clear cold stream for swimming. 

This campsite is accessible for all vehicles and includes amenities, hot showers and drinking water. There’s also plenty of nearby hikes in the surrounding national parks! 

4. Mount Barney National Park

Scenic Rim

Camping areas in Mount Barney National Park are accessible only by foot, and offer no facilities, so you’ll have to come prepared. It’s perfect if you want to unplug from the world and be immersed in natural beauty.
