Camping near Cedar Grove guide


Part of the larger city of Logan, Cedar Grove sits along Logan River and provides campers with some of the most naturally abundant lands and scenic views in Australia. Stay next to natural attractions in a variety of accommodations—from dispersed swag pitches to safari tents to caravan sites. Tamborine National Park to the west presents a bountiful network of rainforests and unique plant communities while preserving the beauty of Tamborine Mountain. Nearby, Nerang National Park—a mountain-biking paradise—takes campers through extensive tracks and shared trails. South of Cedar Grove, explore Lamington National Park’s untouched rainforest lands on walking paths that wind through waterfalls, creeks, and landscapes.

Where to go

Tamborine National Park

About 30 kilometres west of Cedar Grove, Tamborine National Park beckons with some of the best views of the Gold Coast hinterlands. Encompassing Witches Falls, Queensland’s first national park, Tamborine National Park offers vast systems of rainforest, woodlands, and other plant communities for campers to explore along walking tracks and forest trails for horseback riding. While the park does not permit camping, private campgrounds around Tamborine Mountain welcome tent campers, caravanners, and glampers. Amenities at nearby campsites include flushing toilets, firepits, and pet-friendly day areas, as well as hookups for motorhomes.

Nerang National Park

Nerang National Park is another Gold Coast gem for campers to explore. Take bushwalks and horse rides through the park’s eucalypt forests and rainforests. Best known for its mountain-biking opportunities, the park offers shared trails, including 20 designated cycling trails for all experience levels. Nerang doesn’t allow camping, though the surrounding area provides numerous holiday and camping accommodations for tents and caravans. Amenities include BBQs, laundromats, and free wifi, along with both powered and unpowered sites.

Lamington National Park

Officially designated as one of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, Lamington covers over 20,000 hectares of ancient forests and waterways. Traverse an extensive network of walking tracks to fully explore the grounds, from Gwongoorool to Python Rock. Along with opportunities for remote bushwhacking, Lamington’s designated camping area includes 24 tent or swag sites, 21 campervan sites, and 17 safari tents with shared ensuite pods. A wheelchair-accessible amenities block also includes nine toilets and 10 showers. Check out the communal kitchen, communal fire pit, and community hub to meet the neighbours.
