Mt Barney Wilderness Camping

Private Campground - Queensland


Stay for a week-end or longer. The Retreat is a true wilderness escape - just two hours drive from Brisbane.  It doesn't make sense to leave home if you then have to contend with a congested camping ground.  There is no wrong time to visit. Every season shows a different aspect of the bush and the mountains; and no phone, WiFi access or internet access - bliss;

They offer 3 camping area's, the main camping area and a choice of two other secluded camp sites.  They also offer dormitory style accommodation in spacious cabins that sleep 8 persons, basic but comfortable.

Getting Here:

At 750m, Mt Barney Wilderness Camping is adjacent on two sides to Mt Barney National Park. It’s 117km from Brisbane CBD. A 4WD/SUV is needed to access the property as there is a 5km stretch of dirt road from the Council Reserve at the bottom of the hill up to the locked gate.

Three Features of camping here:

  • Along with the main camping area, there is a choice of two other secluded camp sites;
  • There are three fabulous lookout walks to choose from: sunrise, sunset and the big rock; and
