You’ll never want to leave this shady and secluded camping area that has front row seats to the beach and Great Sandy Marine Park.

Set up camp under coastal sheoaks and Moreton Bay ash and take in the views towards Wide Bay Bar and Fraser Island.

During the day explore the area by 4WD or on foot. Fish from the long sandy beaches and cook your catch over your camp fire.

The camping area’s namesake, the MV Natone, was travelling between New Guinea and Brisbane in January 1959 when it was battered by cyclonic winds and ran aground near Mudlo Rocks. Luckily all 18 crew members survived the ordeal.
