Camping in Queensland
Being Australia’s second largest state and with almost 7,000 kms of coastline, there are endless places to take the tent or caravan along for some bush or coastal camping in Queensland.
Queensland is known as the sunshine state, although it’s also one of the most wet states on mainland Australia, resulting in a large number huge, dense forests that are packed with rivers, creeks, lakes and plenty of waterfalls.
Cities that survive and thrive from tourism are right along the eastern coastline, with the majority of the population in the more southern parts of the state. Follow the coast from the south for more holiday, family friendly and touristy places to stay or head further north and inland for a bit more bush and a lot less people.
There are hundreds of campgrounds in Queensland in completely diverse landscapes and environments, suitable for different types of camping. From rugged bush camping with a 4WD to pristine beach campgrounds, Queensland has it all.
Here are the two campgrounds in Queensland that have been mentioned on the WAY&FARER blog. One is a caravan park in the busy and built suburb of Main Beach, next to Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast, the other is inland, just next to a stunning National Park.
