Enjoy a convenient, relaxing base to discover the best of Hervey Bay. Our 25-acre cattle grazing farm is located just off the highway, 3km outside of town, with plenty of space for campers.  We offer numerous camping sites on cleared land, lined by trees, near to our gully and seasonal creek. Each site is private, and offers plenty of space. Campers must be self-contained with their own camp toilet, but there is a 24/7 dump station just 2km away.  A stone's throw from the campsites is access to the mobility corridor/bike path which takes you straight into Hervey Bay, and continues all the way past the shops to Urangan pier, as well as offering 15km of ocean frontage to explore.  Just next door to the campsites, is our fantastic local cafe, The Depot Espresso Bar, open at 6 in the morning but happy to take orders for our campers from 5:30 if you knock. Perfect for hopping on your bike from camp, grabbing your morning caffeine fix, and continuing on the days biking adventure.   Campfires are permitted, but please BYO firepit, and there is plenty of fallen timber you are welcome to collect and split yourself. Pets are welcome too!  Kids under 5 stay free and don’t need to be included in booking group count!

This was our second stay. We love the open space and hope to stay here often. Perfect spot about 5 to 10 minutes from Hervey Bay esplanade. Close to everything without the suburban feel.

Overall, I wasn’t impressed. The sites were unmanaged (not mowed- and hard to find a flat surface and there was cow poo that wasn’t removed for campers) and overpriced. If camping you would need to be fully self contained as it’s just land to camp on with no extras. I had to leave early but I also don’t think I would come back. If the site was $10/night I would feel more willing to stay.

A beautiful big block of land! We were struggling to find anywhere for NYE and this place worked out well! There was no one else apart from one caravan far away so felt like it was just us! No toilets or showers so self contained is a must if you plan to stay longer than a night. It was peaceful, but definitely need mosquito repellent! Thanks for having us!

We just needed a nice flat and dry place to stay while we passed through and this was perfect. They were very accommodating at such short notice.

Very handy location, friendly host, but badly needed a mow. Would not stay again unless long grass was mowed

Useful camp
Overall it was a good camp however not having the address and waiting for Ray at the Ampol was a bit wierd. The are to camp is big and there is a lot of space. Not the ground is a bit rough and cow pats everywhere. You can have fires and dogs so suited us. And a quick car trip into town

Loved it!
We loved our stay here. We don’t like being crammed into big parks. Ray and Judy were lovely and there is plenty of space. They were very accommodating and we extended our stay.

Great open area away from the hustle of Hervey Bay but still close. Brilliant location for visiting Hervey Bay. Pricing is way better than the exhorbitant caravan park prices. Very friendly host.

Great spot! If you are SC, this is ideal. Not far from the esplanade or main roads, yet surprisingly quiet. I highly recommend it!

Camp site amongst the trees & birds
It was lovely to hear the cows and the birds wake you up in the mornings. The market was also on while we were staying. That was a extra bonus to be able to walk there & back. They had lots of lovely things to look at & buy. Also had the rail trail right across the road & we took advantage of this and rode to the Foreshore & along it & back. Lovely paddock to park in wherever you wanted to. It would have been nice to meet the hosts.

Bush serenity
We had three nights at Carlton Farm. Judy and Ray were very hospitable and we thoroughly enjoyed the serenity offered in the bush setting. It is only five minutes from the outskirts of Hervey Bay and was a perfect base. Would definitely recommend if you are self contained and enjoy the quiet of the bush.

Nice enough. Just a cow paddock to park up. More like a $5 or $10 a night stay but still cheaper than a caravan park.

Hervey Bay country style
Beautiful open area fringed by light bush. Lovely green grass, kangaroos, abundant bird life. Close to all that Hervey Bay has to offer but away from all the touristy business. Loved it ♥️ Judy was wonderful to deal with and Ray was a true gentleman. Thank you both for your hospitality.

Carlton farm offers camping/ caravan for totally self sufficient travellers. No facilities or water available. We parked our Avan in the paddock near a stand of trees, the closest neighbour was 50 metres away. Our red kelpie Rosie was welcome, and not required to be on a lead, but under control. We enjoyed a peaceful stay.
