Just a 45 minute drive from our very own Brisbane is the perfect weekend camping spot, also suitable for caravans! Explore a beautiful 2,200 hectares of the Flinders-Goolman Conservation Estate. Enjoy bird watching, hiking, mountain biking and even horseback riding! Keep in mind there’s no power or water, so be prepared to really rough it. One campground is $12 per night.
If you’re further North in Queensland and feel like something fun and fresh, look no further than Barron Gorge! The Djabugay people are the traditional owners, and now they manage the land with Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS). It’s one of the state’s most popular national parks, with gorges, waterfalls and cassowaries! Find lots of recreational opportunities here, but you can’t camp, so set up tent at the nearby Speewah Conservation Park, or just grab a hotel in one of the nearby towns.
