Camping in Expedition

Expedition National Park offers a range of camping opportunities at Robinson Gorge on the east side of the park and at Lonesome and Beilba on the west side of the park. There are three camping areas in total and various bush camping locations elsewhere in the park.

Expedition National Park is remote and undeveloped. Visitors must be well prepared and self-sufficient. Bring at least 7 litres of water per person per day for drinking, cooking and washing as streams are seasonal and water quality cannot be relied upon. Bring a fuel stove and rubbish bags to take your rubbish away with you. Rubbish bins are not provided in the national park.

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