7KMs up a soft sandy track 4WD low range with a offroad trailer or 4WD hi range with camping gear. Its a nice place and has great sunsets and we stay there a few times as it local to use and we have a Bribie Island beach permit for a year if your not local and think of a overnight stay you need a camping permit $6 per person and a 4WD permit $40 for the week which is not explained when booking the camping ground so if your staying only 1 night and dont live in Brisbane its expensive id carry on up the coast and stay on Double Island as its cheaper for a single night or a couple of nights if the ranger catches you without a 4WD permit its a $175 fine. Mossies can be bad in summer.
