This is one of the best coastal camping experiences on the East Coast of Australia. One of our favourite places anyway. You can camp right on the beach with million dollar views and access to the water just a 30 second walk away is unbeatable. You need to be self sufficient here but Tewantin, Rainbow Beach and Noosa are only a 30 minute drive away to get your supplies.
