Camping in Molle Islands

White sandy beaches, pockets of rainforest and pale blue waters make these picturesque inshore islands a wildlife refuge and a scenic retreat for nature lovers. Campers can choose from large group sites to secluded 'deserted' islands, all with close proximity to the extensive walking tracks of South Molle and Long islands

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

Our precious Great Barrier Reef World Heritage islands are among the most pest-free islands in the world. They need your help to stay this way. Please be pest-free! (PDF, 573.6KB) before your visit.
