Camping in Main Range

Developed camping areas

There are three developed camping areas in Main Range National Park; Spicers Gap camping area and the Poplar Flat and Manna Gum camping areas at Goomburra. Private campgrounds are located opposite Queen Mary Falls and at Goomburra.

Spicers Gap camping area is located on the eastern side of the range to the south of Cunninghams Gap. The Goomburra camping areas are located on the western side of the range to the north of Cunninghams Gap.

All camping areas have facilities; composting toilets and tap-water. Barbecues are provided at Goomburra only. All camping areas are within short walking distances to graded walking tracks.

A public phone is available at the private Goomburra Valley campground, located 5 km west of the park boundary. The phone is located near the office, which is situated approximately 150 m north of Inverramsay Road at the entrance to the campgrounds.

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

Remote area bushcamping

Some opportunities for remote, walk-in bush camping are available within the park. See the below remote area bush camp descriptions for more information. Please check the locations and availability of remote area bush camp sites when booking online.

Park-specific conditions

Boil or chemically-treat all tap-water before drinking. When camping at Goomburra, please supply your own firewood for barbecue cooking, or alternatively use a fuel stove. Firewood must not be collected from the park or roadside—fines apply.

No bins are provided at the camping areas; campers are asked to take their rubbish with them.

Goomburra is a special area for frogs; your cooperation is required to protect them. See more information on being ‘frog friendly' when visiting this part of the park.
