Unreal camp
It was such a lovely experience. The hosts were very accommodating and friendly. My mother was on her first camping trip ever ant 69yrs old and enjoy every minute of it. A very pet friendly accommodation and they enjoyed swimming in the dam on the warmer days. We’ve been to the Daintree and found the campsite very similar, it was unreal!! As with the Daintree and any lush, beautiful site, we recommend taking bug repellent as they love this site too. We will definitely be back again!

A magical spot in a beautiful part of the world. We had a great time staying at this lush, green campground. The toilet and shower facilities were very clean and convenient and there were plenty of fantastic spots to set up camp. Would definitely recommend

Such a beautiful place and so close to Byfield National Park! I had to cut my trip short due to an emergency and the hosts were so accomodating. I will definitely be back for a longer stay!

Definitely a place to stop by if you’re ever passing through, grounds were well kept and clean. Host popped by and wished us a good stay, definitely a spot we would come back to. Close to Yeppoon for a day trip aswell.
