Lamington National Park Camp Site

Located about 110km south of Brisbane, inland from the Gold Coast

Campground features: Situated on the side of a grassy sloping hill with tent and campervan sites cut into the slope. An informal dirt road rings the camp sites. All walking tracks are located within easy walking distance. The commercially managed O'Reilly's Rainforest Resort is nearby on private land.

Location: Adjacent to the day visitor carpark at the end of Lamington National Park Road. It is 200m from the QPWS information centre, where you can get walking track information.

Access: The campground is accessible by conventional vehicle. Caravans and buses cannot be accommodated. Although the campground as a whole is accessible by car, for some sites it is necessary to park a short distance from the campsite.

Number of sites: Sites are not numbered.

Campsites are suitable for: tent camping beside your car, walk-in camping and campervans. There are no powered sites. Campervan and tent sites are interspersed throughout the campground. Campervan sites are indicated by a post with a campervan symbol. Sites are not suitable for caravans or camper-trailers as the campervan sites do not allow enough room for annexes to be erected or vehicles to be parked alongside.

Campsite surface: Hardened surface (mixture of compacted crusher dust and sand).

Facilities: Drinking water, composting toilets, hot showers and an industrial rubbish bin. The nearby resort has a public phone. There are no shelter sheds or barbecue facilities in the campground, but there are electric barbecues in the day-use area, 250m away.

Open fires: Prohibited - fuel or gas stoves only.

Generators: Not permitted.

Essentials to bring: Fuel or gas stove, insect repellent, washing up basin, ground sheet to place under your tent to prevent wear, warm clothes and wet weather gear. Bring $1 coins if you plan to use the electric barbecues in the day-use area.
