Stay in a peaceful bush setting in a rural area on the outskirts of Hervey Bay and enjoy all that this lovely beachside city has to offer. We like to keep things uncrowded so we only offer 1 camping site and 1 large bell-tent glamping site at the rear of our 5 acres property. Each site is spacious and has its own cleared area in a bush setting. It's only a 10-minute drive into Hervey Bay for shopping, beaches and the beautiful esplanade.  Access to Fraser Island via both River Heads and Urangan Boat Harbour is a 20-minute drive. Both the camping and glamping site have access to a bathroom with a flushing toilet, shower (cold only), sink and laundry tub. It's a short walk from the campsites. The property is great for relaxing around the campfire but if you want to stay active, there are bushwalking tracks at the rear of the property. Kangaroos,  birds and goannas make a regular appearance but as this is a bush setting, sometimes less cute creatures make an appearance. Hervey Bay Bush Escape is in a quiet area and is not suitable for large or rowdy groups.  We welcome families and have two children ourselves. We do not allow pets here sorry.

We really enjoyed camping at Hervey Bay Bush Camping Escape. Even though we were staying at the back of the property, it was quiet and very private. Lovely to sit around fire (fire pit provided!) at night and to see some kangaroos visit in the early morning. Toilet and shower are very clean and only a short walk away. We would love to come back again!

Peaceful, beautiful, bush camping
Hervey Bay Camping Bush Escape was a wonderful stay! Close to town, shops, the beaches, everything you could want from the area all within a 15 minute drive. The ammenities were brilliant, clean and close by the campsite, which came with a beautiful little fire pit and sitting logs for warm nights by the fire or to cook meals on. I would absolutely stay there again next time I’m in the area, and would recommend it to everyone.

Very nice and private camping spot. With a small fire pit with some wooden seats around. We booked the camping spot, but the glamping tent also looks very nice! Clean toilet and shower. Lovely group of kangaroos around. Lots of toads around so watch your step at night! Only 15min from Hervey Bay where you can get all the supplies you need. First booked for 2 nights but extended for 1 more because we liked it so much!

My daughter and I spent 2 nights at Hervey Bay Bush Camping Escape and it was perfect for what we needed. We parked our camper van on the cement slab that was directly next to a flushing toilet and shower. We also had a camp fire which was great as the nights were quite chilly. I would definitely recommend this property for anyone that's just looking for a place to park and sleep. Jessica and Jason was super friendly and helpful hosts. Thank you for having us.

Camping chill
Loved the spot, lovely people, nice concrete slab that was private from the house. Bathroom in good condition, hot water would be a huge benefit though

Great camping spot, Jason and Jessica are awesome wonderful people very helpful, i have been two weeks the first week Jessica put me on a concrete slab beside the shed as the camp site was muddy after all the the. Week two it was dry enough to move to the site. Heaps of privacy peace and quiet. The amenities are good clean and only a short walk from the camp grounds, it a cold shower but that’s fine. I would stay here again. Thanks Jessica and Jason.😄

Bell tent experience!
Our bell tent experience was awesome! The tent is very tastefully decorated and set out, and our hosts had left thoughtful little touches like gourmet-type marshmallows for the fire, as well as umbrellas and night lights if needed. We were a family of four, one being a rather tall teenager, but the tent was easily spacious enough for all of us. Our 2 children aged 7 and 14 had a blow up mattresses each to sleep on, and loved playing monopoly while sitting on huge floor cushions and sitting under the stars beside the fire. The fairy lights were magical at night and the solar lights very helpful to ensure we didn’t trip over the guy ropes in the dark. There is a little walk to the toilet and shower, and it was a bit wet after all the rains, but very adequate. No electricity but devices can be charged at the bathroom, otherwise car chargers are fine. We were woken by excited birdsong and greeted by a kangaroo while eating our breakfast. A friendly kookaburra also made an appearance and we were excited to hear an unusual owl calling in the dark too. This is a fantastic experience. Just take your gas cooker, a folding table, kitchen items and a container of water for washing convenience. The hosts are lovely and the tent is far enough away from dwellings to feel private. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the children have requested we go back again soon.

The glamping tent exceeded my expectations! It was thoughtfully decorated to include everything you needed and even though it was pouring down rain, you felt secure and cozy. The location is not far from town but set up at the back of the property so it felt extremely private. The amenities were just a short walk up the driveway. This was the perfect place to stay if you need to relax and recharge and I'd definitely stay again!

Great camping in the nature
Great place, Jason and Jess are very nice. Good facilities if you need shower, toilet and potable water close to you. I would come to this place again for sure. Beware of animals around (wild), you’re camping next to the bush so always wear boots, long pants, and if it’s not too hot long sleeves too. There’s also a little track at the back where you can explore. We stayed here because it’s 10-15 minutes to Hervey Bay, perfect if you’re thinking to go to Fraser Island or just somewhere else. 100% recommended

3 things: Nature, Stars and toilet!
it is really nice. lovely place to be out in the wild while the toilet ammenity is real good for the place you get. The couples were really nice, checking in on us to make sure things are good. If you re deciding whether to pick this place, do it for the clear stars at night! If you re looking for an authentic outdoor experience with a great shower, this is it!

Beautiful little camping spot on their property behind the owners house. Saw lots of kangaroos and wildlife felt like we were in the bush. Very generous with extra firewood for the little fire pit they supplied. Very convenient spot if you’re heading into Hervey Bay about a 10min drive.

In the bush is best
Great spot to bush camp and check out Harvey Bay. So easy. Fire wood provided. Great toilet facilities. Really enjoyed a night here. Kids went spider hunting at night. One of the coldest nights of the year but we survived and were nice and sheltered from the cold wind.

Friendly greeting on arrival and the camp site to myself, brilliant. Spent a peaceful night in my tent and had a visit from a kangaroo with joey in the morning. Lovely.
