School Point Campground - Danbulla State Forest

National Park - Queensland

Favourite

Set up camp in this peaceful camping area that has stunning lake and forest views and rich birdlife. Think back to a time when this area bustled with children at the Euramoo State School. The school opened in 1924 for the children of local settlers and 376 pupils attended over the next 34 the years. When the school closed it was moved to another site, and was later destroyed by fire. Swim, canoe and fish from this camping area, or jump in your 4WD and explore the feature-packed Danbulla Drive. Enjoy a cool rainforest walk, or take in the stunning views from the Gillies lookout. Remember to take your lunch because there are quaint picnic areas scattered along the drive.

This area was the site of the Euramoo State School before the dam was constructed. The camping area is 1km from Danbulla Road and has a limited number of attractive sites with wonderful views of the dam, pine plantations and landscaped surrounds. Each site has a tap.
