Nice place. Although. Did not read the room so parked near a man inflicting domestic violence on his family.

Creepy place, random cars going in and out, signage that was not clearly visible and bathroom amenities are tin sheds, no drinking water

A beautiful spot in forest, with a quirky cafe and lovely owners.

Great atmosphere of individuals, welcoming. Although, I would not recommend bringing kids to this campground! The amenities blocks weren’t to bad (toilets are fairly clean) but showers aren’t the cleanest. (good hot water though) Wouldn’t recommend if you prefer early nights/quiet nights. An extreme hipster campground if you know what mean!

Beautiful camping spot
The Billabong felt like such a lush, safe and beautiful space to land during my travels. The whole place has a community feel to it and it is easier to stay long than anticipated due to the beautiful nature of the land and people. I will definitely be visiting again!

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at the billabong. The automatic msg you grt when you book is super helpful and gave us the instructions we needed to arrive in the dark. Super gorgeous spot, you can get a proper coffee in the morning, hot showers, toilets, close to town- all A++ on my books and I've already recommended it to multiple people

Don't expect a quit campsite
We expected a quit campsite but instead arrived at a tourist spot, right next to an event space. There was an event on the night we were there and music was blasting all night, and tens and tens of cars coming and going. We didn't sleep at all due to the ongoing noise.

Beautiful Billabong
Great space and lots of it. The billabong itself is beautiful. Great base to check out local waterfalls and Kuranda. Bit of dog poo about so watch your step. We wanted to get some washing done but no lines to hang and too dusty with cars motoring past to string our own line.

Big commercial campsite
This campsite was not exactly what we were expecting from a HipCamp site. It was a quite large commercial campsite with approximately 50+ sites (also listed on WikiCamps). Although it is very beautifully located in the forest next to the billabong, not a very nice campsite. The amenities were dirty and the bins overfilled. There was a wedding going on with loud music and drunk people until 1 am. Once we had made the booking I directly received a message from the owner asking for my rego. When I replied and asked something else she never answered. Stayed there for two nights and never saw her. Would not recommend. Does not belong on HipCamp.

Great camping spot
We really enjoyed our brief stay at Billabong. We initially parked our camper in the first section as you enter until we saw the many spots that overlooked the billabong. Very peaceful. Instantly felt one with nature. Would highly recommend this spot to anyone staying in Kuranda.

Loved the friendliness and beauty of the Billabong. Had a great shady spot with sweet neighbours which was quiet and peaceful. Road noise in the background not an issue. Amenities basic and shower drainage could improve but hey! All good. I'll be back.

Roof top tent camped for a night. Really great atmosphere. Pretty busy but if you look you’ll find some secret spots where you’re completely alone. Hosts are amazing and go out of their way to help.

Lovely spot, just felt it was a bit expensive for a family of 4 for unpowered camping and outdoors amenity block. Was very friendly and we enjoyed our stay. Beautiful setting.

Nice spot, but not a lot of nice areas to go with a large van. Great spot to base and see the surrounding attractions.
