Coonarr205

6 sites · RVs, Tents7 acres · Kinkuna, QLD
Welcome to my Hipcamp! Beautiful camping area situated next to the Elliott River. 10 minutes drive to Coonarr Beach, Coonarr Wildflowers and Kinkuna National Park. Amazing Stargazing! Just a kilometer up the road from our site, you'll find a charming Dog Motel. Please keep in mind that the noise from the dog motel isn't a nightly occurrence, making it difficult to predict specific nights when it may be more active. However I've noticed that campers in caravans generally have a more insulated experience and are less affected by any early morning barking. If you prefer a quieter spot, I make it a priority to assign campers the farthest firepit, Camp 4, nestled deep in the bush, providing you with a peaceful retreat away from any noise. Additionally I'm delighted to offer electricity to all camps, ensuring your comfort and convenience during your stay. Whether you choose a campsite closer to the amenities or opt for the tranquility of Camp 4, rest assured that you'll have access to electricity. While the dog motel may occasionally add a touch of canine charm to the soundscape, I'm confident that the overall experience at my Hipcamp will be an enjoyable one. Come join me amidst the beauty of nature and let the peaceful surroundings outweigh any sporadic noises from our furry friends. Campsites can be 30m from amenities (toilet & shower). Dog friendly. Drinking water & camp kitchen available. Kangaroo are known to feed on the grass in this campsite. Perfect base for a visit to Bundaberg or an east coast trip. Great for a bigger group with different spaces and communal area.

Camping near Bundaberg guide

Overview

With day trips to the Great Barrier Reef’s Lady Musgrave and Lady Eliot islands, Bundaberg is a terrific low-key home base for any camping trip. Set between the coast and inland sugar cane fields, the town is green with parks, gardens, and vineyards, many within striking distance of the Burnett River, which cuts through Bundaberg. Six national parks are within easy reach, including the sandstone wilderness of Cania Gorge National Park and the wetlands of Burrum Coast National Park.

When to go

Bundaberg is busiest between November and March during the turtle nesting season, but it pays to book campsites as early as possible for any holiday periods. Another good time to visit is July to November, when the waters off Bundaberg come alive with humpback whales as thousands migrate north to mate and give birth, then take the return journey to Antarctica. Bundaberg weather is warm and temperate year-round.

Know before you go

  • Camping permits are required for all Queensland parks, forests, and reserves, and all must be booked online and paid for before arrival. Make camping bookings as early as possible, especially for dates around Christmas. 
  • Remember to pack sunscreen—the Queensland sun can be fierce. If you are heading to the islands to snorkel or dive, check out sunscreens that won’t damage the coral reefs (those that don’t contain oxybenzone or BP-3). 
  • Book as far ahead as possible for turtle encounters at Mon Repos Conservation Park. Numbers are limited and a waiting list operates most years. On the night of your tour, be prepared to wait up to two hours for turtles to appear on the beach and for your turn to come. It’s worth it!
  • Bundaberg has all the facilities you’ll need to stock up before heading to your camping area, as well as a post office, bank, and car hire companies.
