Conveniently located between Launceston and Devonport, Buckbill Banks Camping offers a beautiful, level camping area overlooking Quamby Brook Creek. The 35-acre property offers views of Quamby Bluff, and various options to explore and relax. Find yourself a nice quiet spot, where you can enjoy peace and quiet. Although we take several bookings at once, you are guaranteed a secluded nook, there is plenty of space. There is a woodfired hot tub beside the creek, which all campers have access to. Imagine star gazing from the hot tub of an evening, or enjoying a morning soak whilst keeping your eyes peeled for the resident platypus in their natural habitat! Firewood is provided for the hot tub, as well as your individual campfires. The hot Tub is not for wild parties, but to relax and view the native wild life, quietly watch the platypus in their natural environment. Please note, we accept one camper trailer/caravan per booking. If you are traveling in a group with multiple caravans, you will need to book multiple sites - but will still be able to camp together. The property has good access for all types of vehicles.The camping area has lush green grass and is bordered by native forest and the creekline. It offers plenty of shade and overlooks the water, which is filled with fish and platypus. Lots of native wildlife and birds can be spotted from your campchair! There is plenty of open space, so although we do accept multiple bookings at once, you'll still be able to find your own peaceful area. We can help guide you on arrival as to the best spot for your particular setup. PLEASE stop at house on the way through to check in, and we can guide you to your spot 🙏 Self-contained campers only please, we kindly ask you to bring your own camp toilet and take all the waste when you go. NO fishing at this spot, sorry, due to the platypus breeding area. . Pls take your own rubbish 🗑 with you! There is no lighting of fires without an enclosed fire pot only (byo). No ground fires permitted. Pet friendly - dogs must be kept on a lead at all times and maybe walked in the paddocks. Check-in is stricktly between 2pm and 6pm. Please message to arrange other times. Check out is 12pm unless otherwise arranged.

Hot tub surrounded by nature's best
Bert was a fantastic host. For a late notice booking he was very accommodating. We loved the hot tub under the stars. We didn't expect to see the platypus, but managed to spot three, a spotted quoll and a bunch of sugar gliders. Please pass on our thanks to Bert - Rhiannon, Daniel and the kids.
