Park-specific conditions

Noah Beach camping area is closed throughout the wet season every year from the first Sunday after New Years Day, reopening on Good Friday. These dates may vary depending on weather and road conditions. The camping area may also be closed after heavy rain events. Observe road closures and restrictions, as penalties can apply. Check park alerts and with Queensland Traffic for local road conditions. The Bureau of Meteorology provides updated weather reports.

The maximum length of stay at this camping area is even consecutive nights. Due to vehicle and camp site size restrictions the camping area does not cater for caravans or larger style campervans.

Noah Creek is a 1km walk south along the beach from the camping area. Crocodiles may be present in any water body, so stay away from the water's edge and be croc wise at all times.

Lace monitors (goannas) are often seen patrolling the camping area for food scraps. Do not feed these or any other native animals and keep food and rubbish secure on the goanna poles provided. Feeding wildlife can cause unnatural population increases, illness and aggressive behaviour.
