Great campgrounds

Here’s a list of our favourite campgrounds so far:

  • Cobrabold State Park Picnic Area, NSW

P1000080There’s a picnic area in Cobrabold State Park that has small tucked away campsites located right on a beautiful creek. There’s no facilities so it’s proper bush camping and definitiely worth spending a night or two if you like peaceful, out of the way camping. Cost: Free!

  • Little Styx River Campground, New England NP

P1000191A great base for hiking the New England national park rain forests. Located on the Little Styx river. Super peaceful and large areas to set up. There’s a drop toilet there but thats all. Cost: Free!

  • Delicate Nobby Campground, south of Crescent Head

P1000113An amazing campground in an amazing area. Great campground surrounds with private sites. All facilities available. Across the road from an awesome beach with surfing, fishing and snorkelling. Cost: $15 pp per night. They gave us a deal when we booked in for a week.

  • Illaroo Campground, Yuraygir NP

IMG_0168Beach view camping at its best. A large number of the campsites have beach frontage and look down onto the beach. Surf and fishing beach. Nice walk into the small town of Minnie Water through the bush. Pit toilets only. Cost: $10 pp per night.

  • Adder Rock Campground, North Stradbroke Island

P1000532North Stradbroke Island is a beautiful place with white sandy beaches and clear as clear waters. There’s surfing, fishing, marine life spotting and great walks. The pick of the campgrounds there for us was Adder Rock Campground. It was the least crowded, with spots right on the beach front. Nice private bushy spots too. All facilities available and a convenience store across the road. We loved it here! Cost: $27pp per night.

  • Noosa North Shore Beach Campground

P1000621Beautiful surrounds with paperbark trees surrounding all the sites. Pick from beach frontage spots on open grass areas or tucked away spots protected from any wind. All facilities available. Cost: $24 pp per night.

  1. So good to see you both having a blast! Love the posts and photos, looking forward to following your trails!

  2. I have enjoyed seeing all the places that you have been to but have noticed that you have not posted anything since Darwin.
    Has your journey come to an end? 🙁

    • Hey Fiona. Glad you’ve been enjoying our stories! We’ve been heading out for plenty of adventures while in Darwin but have been a little lazy with updating with new stories, sorry!

      Eventually we will be heading off from Darwin and completing the trip by heading down the west coast and across the bottom. Stay posted for more updates soon!

      D&C 🙂

  3. Hi there
    We’re hoping to go camping on Whitsundays island in May and wondered if you have any advice for us. Would prefer a small camp site with not too many people

    thanks, Lynda
