Come and stay with us in the former Mining Village at “MTCarbine Caravan Park” and explore some of MT Carbine’s unique history.

Surrounded by mountains, with the great dividing range three kilometers away the caravan park is 351 meters above sea level and there are several mountain peaks between 1200 and 1320 meters which offer you the opportunity to go bush walking and mountain/rock climbing. The former wolframite(Tungsten) mine has re-opened and the over-burden is used as a quarry these days although there is an enormous ore body remaining. The area has had a sheelite mine, many tin mines as well as gold and copper mines. Between the caravan park and the hotel and roadhouse there is the manganese creek which is also popular for swimming in the summer (Wet season). The park is surrounded by the Brooklyn station which is around 59,000 hectares and is in Iron bark country. It is owned by Australian Wildlife Conservancy which is a wildlife conservation park – in perpetuity.

Situated 70 KLMS west of Port Douglas and 197 Klms south of Cooktown on the Mulligan Highway is the rustic Mt Carbine Caravan Park. This Park has a bush setting with very spacious sites and we were privileged to be escorted by the manager to our undercover site. The management were very friendly and assistance in directing to site was a very appreciated service. Amenities were clean and private. RVs must be self contained regarding drinking water .Powered sites are available but no dump. Very reasonably priced.

Great spot. Peaceful, lots of bird life. More like a bush camp. Very friendly owners and put on an excellent sausage sizzle on state of origin night. Very enjoyable couple of days ( despite Qld losing the game)

We stayed here one night on the way to Cooktown The park is a converted workers camp and has obviously seen better days but the new owners were progressively upgrading things. Our hosts were interesting people and in the afternoons he gave talks on the rocks minerals and things and the history of mining in the area over a long period of time. Quite interesting. From memory it was $20 a night with power. You can store your rig here if making a trip up Cape York. Didnt use the facilities but they were fairly basic but adequate.

Good for an overnight stop. Many sites have a campfire and the wood is free. We’d stay here again.

Closes for the wet season and will open at Easter.
