National Parks Campgrounds

Camping in the World Heritage listed national parks of the region is very popular on weekends and during school holidays, with some locations being walk-in bush camping only.  Booking online in advance for QLD National Parks is recommended. At NSW National Parks, it is "first come - best dressed", so you may drive in, and pay your camping fee as directed at self payment stations prior to setting up camp.  Please note; firearms and pets are not permitted in national parks*. 

*Caravanners please note: Composting toilets are common in most national parks.  Please DON'T empty your portaloo waste into them, as the chemicals in portaloos destroy natural processes that make composting toilets an effective eco-friendly option in these places.

Public Reserves, Showgrounds and State Forests

Camping in public reserves is usually operated by local community showground trust, progress association or overseen by the general store or garage owner/manager in the local village. There maybe a standard "gold coin" donation or nominal fee for camping at these locations.  Facilities are usually primitive or basic, and depending on the management, it will either be "first come - best dressed" or you may need to book in advance.  Like national parks, some locations are popular with the locals on weekends and during school holidays, so you should enquire in advance to avoid disppointment.
