There are several secluded spots under the trees or in the open - suitable for camping, camper trailer or small camper/mini van. We are a short walk to the beach, shops, bus stop, pub, restaurants and golf course - everything you need is at your fingertips!

Our property is simply a large, mowed private block of land just 600m to the beach of Picnic Bay on Magnetic Island. We have a small creek that runs through the property during the wet season, and several secluded spots among the trees. 

Please note we have no water, power or toilet facilities so ask that you be fully self- contained... Although not fenced, your dog is more than welcome - but please watch him with our resident wildlife.

Jo was very helpful.
Site was nice and quiet and I had the place to myself, so very private.
Perfect for the fully self contained camper.
Close to a great dog friendly beach, shops and public BBQ.
Thanks Jo, we will be back.

A good little spot to stay if you have dogs.
Jo had the lawns mowed while we stayed there and it made the site a lot better. Very private and lots of trees on a site out of the back of their property. No creek while we were there.
Fairly pricey when you consider the price $20/pp if you have a few people staying but great option because nowhere else on the island allows dogs and camping.

We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay on Magnetic Island. It is such a magical time of year, and although the creek isn't running at present (only in the wet season) the temperature is divine. Glad your dogs enjoyed it too.

Awesome little camp spot! Lovely grassed area tucked away from the road. We brought our dog and he had a great time.
No amenities, so if you are self sufficient I would definitely recommend staying here!
Thanks!
