This facility has been provided by Cairns Regional Council to provide free short term parking parking. A strict 72 hour time limit applies. After 3 days, campers are not to return for 14 days. 

Dump point, bins and toilets available on-site, 

Please keep in mind that due to the wet season, this site is only accessible between May through October. 

Please note this camp site is closed till the 1st May 2020 for the wet season.

Council has temporarily reopened site due to low risk of flooding

Still closed but so so close to being ready. Looks like a great stopover. Not huge but certainly we’ll set up for the RV travellers. I could see a dump point and great new toilet block. Should be excellent. Only a few lights to install and it’ll be ready.

Greenpatch will be CLOSED between 1 November 2020 and 30 April 2021 due to the increased risk of flash The council no longer requires the COVID check in. The maximum length of stay is strictly 72 hours, after which a person must not return to the camping area to camp within 14 days of departure, Council regularly patrols the campground to ensure compliance. Facilities include a dump point, coin-operated hot showers, unpowered grassy sites with some trees. Caravans and motorhomes heading south need to go over the bridge (past the camp) then turn left onto the side road. This is due to 2.2m hight limitation if you turn off before the river

Great revamped restaurant area, the top section is concreted so will probably be open in wet season now

Closed until further notice, toilet block has been removed and road blocked - 12/2018

Great stop over clean ammenities thanks cairns council Was quite crowded

We passed by this Rest Area at 9.00am this morning 7th July. For a day use area,, it was very busy. A few Motorhomes and Caravans and lots of backpacker type vans, station wagons etc had stayed overnight. Would be a good place to stay if camping were permitted.

Everybody camps here, big rigs to tents, need to get here reasonably early as the best level sites get taken quickly.

Campground is now closed for the wet season see photo

Council has back tracked on the closure due to public pressure and has now reopened the camp
