Please notify us if you are camping with other campers who have booked a separate site so we can have you camping beside each other. During busy times, most weekend bookings are a minimum of 2 nights with 1 night bookings during the week, however occasionally we will have 1 night bookings on weekends. Check with your host to see availability on 1 night bookings. Kayaks are provided free of charge for all campers to use in Yabba Creek. Please treat them respectfully and return them back to their launching place just below the powerlines. If you wish to bring along your own kayak, you can launch them at the walkway between campsite 8 and 9 where our camp kayaks are stored, however, cars are restricted from driving down to the water edge so you will have to carry them to the water to launch them. Please note that you are responsible for your own kayak. All campsites run parallel too the creek and are situated on the upper bank of Yabba Creek. Some have creek views, the other sites have trees between the creek and their site. All have mountain views. The main access to the creek is half way along the campground between site 8 and 9. Please do not leave your car parked in the walkway as this will block the entrance to campsite 9. Unfortunately, we lost many of our creek access points due to flooding. Our property is situated between Imbil and Lake Borumba on the beautiful Yabba Creek. We have 110 acres, with campsites on 20 acres. We have 1km of creek frontage. The creek offers fishing, swimming and kayaking. If you're lucky you'll spot the platypus in the creek and there's lots of birdlife around so bring your cameras! Kayaks are supplied free for all campers to use. We just ask that you treat them with respect and return them back to their launching place once you have finished with them. It would pay to pack your reef walkers as the river is rocky in spots. There is lots of space for motorhomes and large camping vehicles to maneuver and park. Plenty of flat spots for your tent or vehicle. This campsite has access to flushing toilets (toilets are situated approx. 400m from the camp sites) and water (rainwater), but you will need to bring your own camping shower. Campfires are permitted outside of fire-ban season (please use the existing firepits). Firewood is available and can be delivered to your site by our local contractor. Cost is $20 for a generous load or $10 for a half load. The property features a gorgeous rainforest with a walking track that you can follow safely, and you can also access the state forest next door if you're up for a bigger adventure. Lake Borumba is just down the road which permits water skiing, boating, fishing and other water recreation.

Camping near Boreen Point with wildlife watching guide

Overview

Roughly 45 minutes north of the Sunshine Coast, Boreen Point sits on the shores of Lake Cootharaba. Pitch the tent or park the motorhome at a caravan park in town that offers convenient amenities, like powered sites, laundry facilities, and camp kitchens. Then visit the natural splendour of Great Sandy National Park, Amamoor State Forest, and Brooyar State Forest, which also offer camping options and outdoor activities for all ages. From swimming to sand dunes, rainforest walks, and rock climbing cliffs, Boreen Point is a thrill-seeker's gateway to adventure.

Where to go

Great Sandy National Park

A 20-minute drive from Boreen Point brings campers to Great Sandy National Park. It’s broken up into two sections. The World Heritage-listed K’gari is in the north (also known as Fraser Island) and the Cooloola Recreation Area is in the south, attached to the mainland. Climb huge sand dunes, visit white silica sand beaches, dive into the crystal clear waters of Lake Mackenzie, or venture into the Noosa Everglades to experience a diverse range of wildlife. Drop the kayak or canoe into the water to discover rustic lakeside bush camping options or get pampered with flush toilets, hot showers, and BBQ facilities at site-designated campgrounds for tents, trailers, and caravans.

Amamoor State Forest

Campers can stretch their legs on the many walking trail options in Amamoor State Forest, roughly 45 minutes from Boreen Point. Walk the Fig Tree Circuit that weaves through macadamia nut trees, capture snapshots of a waterfall, and scoop up yabbies from Amamoor Creek. Swags, travel trailers, and caravans are welcome in on-site campgrounds equipped with fire rings and flush toilets. Keep an eye on the tree canopy while settling in, as it’s a popular spot for birds to perch. Remember to bring wood for campfires, as the forest is off-limits for scavenging.

Brooyar State Forest

Enjoy pet-friendly camping in Brooyar State Forest, roughly an hour from Boreen Point. Campsites here are suitable for small tents to large motorhomes. Amenities like picnic tables, compost toilets, non-potable water, and fire rings offer more convenience. Wake up and take a scenic drive through the woods and make a pit stop at the sandstone cliffs of Point Pure Lookout. Catch views of the hoop pine plantations and eucalyptus forest below. Rock climbers can challenge themselves at Eagles Nest abseiling site, while hikers head to Glastonbury Creek to spot local critters like platypus, turtles, and fish.

When to go

Boreen Point sees slightly more rain than surrounding areas, even in drier months, so bring gumboots to roam around comfortably. Summer sees hotter temperatures as well as stormy skies throughout February. All that moisture produces tons of fresh flowers that decorate the trees in Brooyar State Forest. December is the sunniest month, making it a top choice for outdoor activities like picnicking and hiking. The cooler temperatures and semi-dry skies in June, July, and August are great times for rock climbers to scale cliffs without breaking a sweat.
