Gheerulla Camping Area at Mapleton Forest Reserve

National Park - Queensland


Gheerulla camping area is a compact bush setting next to Gheerulla Creek.

Getting There and Location

From the Bruce Highway take the Eumundi-Kenilworth Road and travel 24km to the Sam Kelly Road junction, turn left into this road and continue 2km to the camping area. A four-wheel-drive vehicle is recommended for accessing the Gheerulla camping area. From the Eumundi-Kenilworth Road, turnoff onto Sam Kelly Road and travel 2km to the camping area—this gravel road becomes narrow and has been flood damaged.

Please note, caravans are not recommended due to limited turnaround area. 


  • Picnic tables

Essentials to Bring

Drinking water (creek water is unsuitable for drinking), insect repellent, sunscreen and rubbish bags (no bins provided). If you plan to use the barbecues bring your own clean, milled firewood. Do not collect wood from the park. Preferably bring a fuel stove.
