This campsite, just minutes from the township of Nerang, offers great access in all directions due to its close proximity to the M1 Highway and hinterland roads.

The grassed area pictured (about half an acre) is the location where tents, motorhomes and caravans alike can choose a spot. There is just the one site allowed for set up by hipcampers.

It must be mentioned that about 50m from the site there is a habitable bus that is parked up permanently for a long term tenant.  This tenant also will gain access to their area along the same track as hipcampers. This track would irregularly be used for the "bus people" to come and go. The permanent area, where the bus is, is  fenced all around with gates and a good distance from the hipcampers to allow private and separate living for all.

Electricity is available and the grassed area is suitable for activities. There unfortunately is no provision for pets unless permanently on leash (or similar) as there is no longer a fenced off area as there has been in the past.  Kangaroos and birdlife are however frequent visitors to the property. 

The location is excellent for walking in the neighbouring reserve land - Kirribilli Park 200m away - and accessing the hinterland.  Just 6 minutes from the highway to go North, South or East to the beach (30minutes) and already on the way to the rest of the Gold Coast hinterland.

Please note that unless you have a water purification kit, there is no water provided despite being close to two dams on the property - this dam water is on tap beside the camp ground if that is of any use to anyone.

Hoping that you will enjoy staying at the property in Gilston and we are looking forward to seeing you in the near future as we reopen on the 19th of October 2021.

 Cheers Craig

Great place to test out the new van for the weekend with a day trip down to Currumbin. Easy to drive into and reverse back into the spot and fenced yard was great for the dog. Some mosquitoes from the dam were about due to the recent lack of rain but nothing some insect repellent couldn't solve.

Great spot, so peaceful and quiet yet so close to the GC. We loved it, so did Sophie our 12 yo blueheeler. Up the road is Kirribilli Park great for a walk and birdwatching. Just a note, no potable water equals no water. Host kindly left a jerrycan full for use.

This was our second stay and we got to enjoy it a bit more. The kids loved playing in the open field and the proximity to the local skate park. Nice and quiet with wildlife around.
