Generators

Generators are allowed in some camping areas so you don't always have to do without all your home comforts.

Where are generators allowed?

Camping in doesn’t always mean leaving behind all your electronic home comforts—fridges, microwaves and laptops!

While many visitors seek peace and quiet when camping in our parks, there are some camping areas around the State where the use of generators is allowed.

Check specific park pages for other generator restrictions, including maximum noise level output, hours of use, in place for each camp site. Read the Operational policy: Generators and Noise Generating Appliances in Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) Managed Areas (PDF, 127.1KB) for further information.

Medical conditions

In some areas where generator use is not allowed, if you have a medical condition, you are allowed to use low decibel generators (65dB (A)) to run essential devices. Make sure you have a current medical certificate stating you require the use of an appliance.

Other options

Generator noise can disturb other people’s enjoyment of the area and disturb native wildlife, so think about using alternatives. Solar panels and inverters are the best ways to provide power for your must-have devices when camping and can be used anywhere.
