Ferns Hideaway Resort

Private Campground - Queensland


Ferns Hideaway is a licensed caravan park featuring a large open grassed area for RVs to park, and is the perfect location to base yourself for your journey through Queensland. With hot and cold showers, a camp kitchen and social lounge 'The Trough and Trolley' and use of all facilities (bush walking, canoes, tennis, volleyball, pool and spa) guests will have plenty to keep them occupied during their stay. Guests can also kick back and relax enjoying the ambience of the rainforest and are welcome to have small open cooking fires at individual sites as long as there are no current fire bans in the local area.

We have accommodation available seven days a week. Here at Ferns we have four log style open-plan cabins, one cabin with separate rooms and camping available. If you plan to reserve a cabin on a weekend we ask for a minimum of two nights stay; however, this does not apply during the weeks.

Ferns now acts as a release point for fostered wildlife release. Due to this we do not allow our patrons to bring any domestic pets (dogs/cats) to Ferns as it can distress newly released animals. 

Please note :

On Saturday nights we only book cabins to patrons who are planning to use the restaurant that evening. This is because we only have five cabins at Ferns for our patrons who would prefer not to drive home after dining at the restaurant. On any other night you can self-cater in the cabin.

We do not supply firewood at Ferns Hideaway. You can purchase firewood from Bunnings in Rockhampton, the Farnborough Store and Byfield General Store. Smaller kindling can be found in the bush around your cabin or campsite.

The restaurant has lunch available on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and dinner Saturday night with live music on weekends from the house musician Marto who plays requests from the 60s, 70s, 80s and onwards! During the winter months the '70's Sunday's' entertainment is a must for any of the Baby Boomers visiting the region. Live music, requests from your era and singing and dancing with Marto is assured. 

If travellers require replenishments for stays, there is a local general store which opens daily and is located just five minutes down the road and also supplies fuel. 

By far the best value as it has beautiful gardens, amenities and a host of free activities. We especially loved canoeing on the creek, a stunning little waterway. Drinking water is available but not to fill. No dump point. Our hosts were lovely and gave us sorghum to feed the wallaby. Plus there were a group of Guinea fowl hanging arournd. The whole area of Byfield is a hidden gem
