Hidden gem!
Brians spot is beyond beauitful, i was surprised we had the whole place to ourselves. Manicured private camp sites with designated firepits and a haul of wood supplied on arrival. Kangaroos jumping around the field and feeding while the sun set, do yourself a favor and spend 2 nights to enjoy nearby Woodgate and Burrum beach, which you can drive on. Cant wait to stay there again.
