A special camping experience can be enjoyed at this spectacular location in QLD close to the NSW border. Lamington National Park adjoins this outrageously beautiful property that features the waterfall made famous by actress Laura Dern in the iconic Sunsilk shampoo commercial filmed here in 1998. (LGBT welcome). PLEASE NOTE: The Hipcamp service fee varies according to the amount of the booking. For one guest for one night the service fee is 18% approx. of the camp site fee. Bookings at Natural Bridge Retreat have to be for a minimum of two nights. As most bookings are for two or more people for two or more nights, the service fee is generally 11.2%. A beautiful creek descends through the 135 acres which includes rainforest that is listed as State significant vegetation. There is a deep swimming hole at the waterfall and other swimming areas up and down the creeks. You can hike to the upper plateaus that feature two ancient Strangler Figs with ocean views and a view of Mt.Warning as well as to the Bushranger Caves and lookouts higher up on the Lamington Plateau. Natural beauty is everywhere you look with mountain views, volcanic boulders and rock formations, Upland Rainforest and lots of wildlife. This is a property for nature lovers. Mobile reception (Telstra works the best), flushing toilets (ladies & gents), hot shower and campfires are permitted in designated locations - sorry no pets. We will e-mail further details upon receiving your booking including a link to a Release and Indemnity form that must be completed prior to entering the property and a link to a form to advise your vehicle type and camping mode. *All bookings must be for 2 nights minimum and in the peak periods 3 nights minimum and 4 nights for the Easter holidays.

Would Rate it!!
It was amazing! Definitely what we needed to get out of the hustle and bustle of this crazy thing called life. Keith was amazing and very accomodating. I would love to be back and enjoy it again! Waterfall was the best thing to swim in first thing in the morning for a fresh wake up!

Loved everything: The waterfall, the tent site, and facilities! Big patch of land and you can hike up the hill for a little exercise and to enjoy some magnificent view. Keith, the owner, is really passionate about his land and maintain everything really well. Definitely, coming back!

Idyllic
An idyllic camping ground with beautiful waterfall. Such an amazing and beautiful site and swimming in the natural pools of crystal clear water felt like you were on a movie set. The toilets are portable ones and were well kept and clean. The shower is an outdoor shower. This camp site makes you feel like you’re among nature. Loved it and will go again.

Slice of Heaven
Absolutely stunning doesn't even compare to how breathtaking this property is. Keith and his wife are amazing hosts with a wealth of knowledge and advice. The streams and swimming holes are slices of heaven on earth, and are stunning. If you're ever wanting to re-connect to the beauty of nature, this is the place. We were only there for two nights with our children but it was enough to cement in all our minds that this is was by far, the best camping site we've done thus far, and it's going to be hard to top!

PERFECT, nothing more we can say
Beautiful, well kept place. Listening to the running creek during the night just made it that much better. Views are amazing and facilities well kept. Keith was a great host and made himself available if needed. Looking forward to our next trip to unwind again.

Vi kommer fra Danmark, vi havde ikke booket os ind, og blev i første omgang afvist, vi skulle have booket online, men Keith og Sandra hjalp os på alle måder, vi takker for en fantastisk oplevelse, dejligt imødekommende værter, skøn natur, fred og ro….

The site is beautiful, very open with a creek and a walk up the hill and views of the valley. A lots of space so you are not cramped on top of each other. The amenities are clean and not far. You can spot Keith with his high viz taking care of everything on site. Cows, birds and nature all around! Will come back soon

A night by the water!
This spot is simply breathtaking, a must see for campers who love adventure. The location itself has multiple beautiful rock formations and little swimming holes based around the camp sites, making it very easy to enjoy a swim. Plenty of privacy as the sites are spread well apart, which makes for a more secluded style of camping. Lastly the host Keith was absolutely amazing as he did regular check ups on all of the campers on his premises and made sure their needs were met, sometimes even without asking and that made the experience that much more enjoyable. Thanks again Keith cannot wait for the next adventure!
