Camping in Conondale

The Booloumba Creek Road access includes creek crossings that are accessible by high clearance four-wheel-drive vehicles only.

There are three camping areas at Booloumba Creek. Grassy camp sites are located in rainforest and open forest settings close to mountain streams.

Booloumba Creek camping areas 1 and 3 are nestled in luxuriant rainforest. They are high clearance four-wheel-drive accessible and for tents only. Campervans, caravans or camper trailers are not allowed in these areas. Vehicle parking spaces are provided beside the road adjoining the campsites—expect to carry your camping gear a short distance. Some wheelchair-accessible toilets are provided—assistance is required to negotiate grassed areas.

Booloumba Creek camping area 4 is in a grassy open forest and has sites suitable for tents, large groups. It is accessible by high clearance four-wheel-drives towing high clearance caravans and camper trailers, and high clearance four-wheel-drive campervans.

Nearby Imbil State Forest’s Charlie Moreland camping area, on Sunday Creek Road, is accessible by conventional two-wheel-drive vehicles.

There are three remote overnight walkers’ camps located along the Conondale Range Great Walk.
