Wreck Rock Camping Area

National Park - Queensland


Wreck Rock can be accessed by four-wheel drive from the north or by conventional vehicle from the south. Access roads to camping areas are suitable for camper trailers. Caravan access is not possible. However Team Tripigy has traversed these tracks, and although 4wd is needed a hybrid small van would be able to access the camping facilities.

The park's diverse vegetation of coastal scrubs, eucalypt woodlands, wet heaths and sedgelands surround Deepwater Creek and its tributaries. Tannins and other substances leached from surrounding heath plants stain the creek water brown. The creek is fringed by tall forests of swamp mahogany, paperbark and cabbage palms, and is broken in places by shallow sections of reed bed and paperbark forest. In these areas water only flows during the wet season.

Deepwater supports diverse birdlife such as emus, red-tailed black-cockatoos, honeyeaters, brahminy kites and waterbirds. Nesting turtles frequent Deepwater Beach from October to April, turtle hatchlings emerge from the nests from January, usually at night.
Perfect camp spot for our slide-on. Went in school holidays but the sites are so scattered and private you wouldn’t know there was anyone else around. Short walk over the dunes to a beautiful beach and fascinating rock pools. We’ll be back.
