Camping changes to Teewah Beach camping area in 2021

This alert applies to the following park:
- Cooloola Recreation Area, Great Sandy National ParkSunshine Coast
Due to the popularity of camping at Teewah Beach, and previous rock falls adjacent to the camping area posing a risk to campers, Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service are implementing changes to improve visitor safety and provide park visitors with better camping experiences.
From February 2021, the way you book your camp site at Teewah Beach will change. The open camping area will be divided into seven separate camping zones, allowing campers to choose a zone to camp before arriving at the site.
To address the rock fall issues, an external risk assessment on the foredunes and beach ridges above Teewah Beach was undertaken and identified sections of beach with a high risk to rock fall. These areas are now closed to camping with ‘Danger no camping’ signs installed to mark these locations.
The majority of the no camping areas are located at the southern end of Teewah Beach towards Noosa North Shore and for this reason zones 5, 6 and 7 are smaller zones with lower camper capacity to reduce overcrowding.
Teewah Beach camping zones will be available to book from 4 December 2020 for camping dates 1st February 2021 onwards at www.qld.gov.au/camping .
More details about the Teewah Beach camping zones including a map are available online.
We thank all our park visitors for their ongoing support and cooperation.
In an emergency situation, call 000.
