Camping in Blencoe Falls

Blencoe Falls camping area offers both walk-in and vehicle-based bush camping in a peaceful setting. There are some sites nestled amongst trees adjacent to Blencoe Creek or larger sites in open woodland that are a short walk from the creek.

Camping permits are required and fees apply. A camping tag with your booking number must be displayed at your camp site.

To avoid trampling vegetation, disturbing wildlife and causing erosion, please keep your four-wheel-drive vehicle on marked tracks. Failure to stay on the track may incur a penalty.

If you prefer to rough it, then limited bush camping opportunities exist as part of the Wet Tropics Great Walk. These are hike-in sites and campers need to be totally self-sufficient.

Camp fires are allowed within the camping areas but firewood must not be collected from the national park.
