Camping on the Sunshine Coast Great Walk

There are three secluded walkers' camps along the Great Walk track:

Camp sites at these camps are designed for small bushwalking tents. There are isolated sites for those who desire a natural bush experience and some sites immediately adjacent to each other for those in small groups or who like socialising with other walkers.

Each walkers' camp has platform seats, untreated drinking water and a toilet. Bins are not provided—all rubbish must be carried out. Open fires are not permitted (penalties apply).

You can stay for a maximum of one night at each walkers’ camp. Numbers are limited at each walkers’ camp. This helps to sustain the camp sites and gives you a natural Great Walk bush camping experience.

  • Camping permits are required and fees apply.
  • A tag with your booking number must be displayed at your camp site.
  • A maximum group size of two people per camp site is recommended.
  • Large groups are limited to 16 people at each walkers’ camp—including school groups. Check camp site availability before booking a group.
  • Book your camp site well ahead—anytime up to 12 months in advance.
  • Book your camp site online.
  • If you cannot book online, see camping bookings for other options.
  • Read more about planning your walk, walking safely and walking softly.
