    Camping and accommodation


    There are three basic camping areas provided in Bulburin National Park for bush camping. One camping area is provided at the site of the former forestry barracks on Bulburin Forest Road. Two other camping areas are accessed from the four-wheel-drive loop road.

    Camping permits are required and fees apply.

    Other accommodation

    Hotels, motels and other holiday accommodation is available in and around Gladstone.

    See the tourism information links for more details.


    There are no formed walking tracks in Bulburin National Park, however you can explore the forest on foot along vehicle tracks. When walking along forest roads always walk facing the oncoming traffic and look out for other road users. Please take water, sunscreen and insect repellent with you.


    The road from the site of the old forestry camp to the Bruce Highway and the four-wheel-drive Loop Road past Scotts Bridge provides a rocky touring experience with picturesque views of rainforests and scenic landscapes. Make sure you have four-wheel-driving experience and recovery gear. Do not attempt these roads in wet weather or with a two-wheel-drive vehicle.

    Viewing wildlife

    Stop, look and listen for rose-crowned fruit-doves, noisy pittas, regent and satin bowerbirds, and paradise riflebirds in the rainforest.
