Nyalar Mirunganah Nature Refuge

31 sites · RVs, Tents470 acres · North Branch, QLD
**Our camping sites vary in size and proximity to others. If you want to come with a group with several vehicles etc, please send a message rather than book separate sites. We will help find a site which suits your needs. We now have several secluded bush camp sites as alternatives to our more 'civilised' sites. They have no facilities apart from the site so you must be entirely self-sufficient. But all are single sites well away from others. We invite you to come and share our property, soak up the tranquility of our quiet valley and enjoy feeling at home in nature. And your dog is welcome too (under control please because we value our wildlife, and no more than 2 dogs per couple or family group)! The land is nearly 200 Ha in the western foothills of the Dividing Range, with the usually-flowing North Branch Creek being a green haven supporting lots of wildlife. It also includes the secluded back valley of Hann Creek to which you can walk, cycle or ride, with many tracks of lengths up to 3 km. The land is mostly open forest land with some cleared areas from its dairy-farming history, and many gullies with thicker vegetation. The property is mostly now dedicated to nature conservation and the recovery of its more natural state. It is a Nature Refuge under Qld legislation with special emphasis on recognising that the land is Githabul country, honouring local Githabul people now, sharing it with them and others, plus preserving species of plants and animals with known relevance to their former lifestyles. The name Nyalar Mirungan-ah means 'Old Women's Tears' in Githabul, and recognises that they cry because the land was taken from them and because it has not been looked after well by European people. We are now trying to care for it well, and to allow the original ecosystems to return, by lighter grazing, soil recovery and using traditional Aboriginal burning knowledge. And we welcome dogs as long as they don't disturb our wildlife. Shandy, our own dog, is very welcoming to guests and might drop in to your camp for a visit.

Camping near Currumbin guide

With its mix of oceanside and riverside beaches, Currumbin provides plenty of ways to get on the water. Head down to the seafront to swim, surf, or fish along Currumbin Beach, or take to the sheltered waters of Currumbin Creek and the Alley to kayak or stand-up paddleboard. Ocean views await explorers at Elephant Rock, after which you can take a bushwalk in the Tarrabora Reserve, and dip in the Currumbin Rock Pools. Don’t miss a visit to the star attraction—Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. Campers have options along the beachfront in neighboring Burleigh Heads and Tweed Heads.

Where to Go

Gold Coast

North of Currumbin, the Gold Coast is Queensland’s flagship beach destination. Stop by Burleigh Heads to browse the famous Village Markets, hit the surf at Miami Beach or Broadbeach, or get your adrenaline pumping at one of the five theme parks. Further north, the skyscraper-lined beaches of Surfer’s Paradise are world-famous, and the city’s nightlife is equally renowned.  

Gold Coast Hinterlands

Away from the theme parks and beach resorts of the coast, the Gold Coast hinterlands are a natural playground of mountains, rainforest, and vineyards. Take in the views from Tamborine Mountain, explore glowworm caves in the Springbrook National Park, or hike part of the Gold Coast Hinterland Great Walk. To escape the crowds, pitch your tent at backcountry campsites in the Lamington National Park.

NSW North Coast

South of Currumbin, Tweed Heads is the cultural hub of the Tweed region, where you can enjoy rainforest walks, surf beaches, and riverside camping. Continue south along the Legendary Pacific Coast Route to the surf mecca of Byron Bay, or head inland to hike and camp in the Nightcap National Park.

When to Go

Currumbin is a year-round destination, and the sun is always shining along the Gold Coast. Surfing and water sports are possible right through winter, but peak season is summer (December through January), when attractions such as the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary can get crowded. Spring brings a number of festivals and events to the beachside, while June through October whale-watching season along the coast. 

Know Before You Go

  • The Gold Coast has an excellent public transport service, but having your own transport is useful for exploring the hinterlands and national parks.
  • Currumbin has a good selection of shops where you can pick up camping gear and stock up on supplies before heading out into the hinterlands.
  • Fire bans are common in Queensland during summer and dry periods, so be sure to check local recommendations.
  • Camping permits are required to camp within Queensland’s national parks and must be reserved in advance.

Safety partners

Hipcamp acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders past, present and future and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
