If relaxation is more your goal, sit back and read a book in the shade of the coastal sheoaks and Moreton Bay ash.

The camping area is named after the MV Sarawak, a former navy minesweeper that made weekly trips between Brisbane and Maryborough—through Inskip—from 1949 to 1970. Supplies, including drums of fuel, were transported north, while the ship was full of sugar on its return leg.
