Fong-On Bay Campground - Danbulla State Forest

National Park - Queensland


If you’re travelling with a large family or group of friends you'll find plenty of space to set up on this water-flanked peninsula. Most sites have water access and all have stunning views of the lake and beyond. Take to the lake’s cool waters. Swim, canoe, fish and waterski right from your camp site. Jump in the car and head along the Danbulla Drive, exploring World Heritage listed-rainforest, fascinating historical sites, amazing natural features and quaint picnic areas. After a big day on the water or deep in the surrounding forest, spend the night with family or friends swapping stories around the camp fire.

This large camping area is favoured by waterskiers and most of the camp sites along this peninsula have water access and views. Beyond the lake, rolling hills, forests and pine plantations form a picturesque backdrop. The camping area is divided into two sections—Bulmba and Gungul—and seasonal closures apply to the Gungul section.
