Visitors need to book their camping permit before they visit. Book online, at an over-the-counter booking office or by phone.
After a day fishing, swimming and waterskiing you’ll be ready to relax at your private waterside camp site. Pull the boat up and settle into your camp chair to watch the sunset colours spread across the sky. When night falls, relax around the campfire and gaze across at the twinkling lights of Tinaroo.
This area is home to loads of nocturnal wildlife, so grab your torch and see if you can spot possums, gliders, owls and insects. Train your light on the water’s edge and you’re likely to see fish, redclaw and other yabbies.
