Camping and bushwalking

Pre-book your camp site

Camping in Queensland’s parks and forests requires a permit and fees apply.

There is usually high demand for camp sites in many parks and forests during peak times like school holidays and long weekends, so it is advisable to book your camp site well in advance for these times.
