Hi,

I have booked a site on Ocean Beach for Tuesday to Thursday and I was hoping for some advice.

In the booking information it has you cannot access your site before 2pm, but the tide charts are low 7.51am high 2.04pm. Does anyone have any advise on what is the best course of action. obviously I don't want to wait to the next low tide 8pm... Other camper has to vacate site by 11am.

Not sure what to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just head up the beach and find a spot to have lunch close to the camp site, and I'd be going into the site as soon as you can before high tide.

i'd be driving up the beach at a time as early as possible and check to see when any previous campers at that site have left or if they are leaving, once they're gone i'd be driving in and setting up. i seriously doubt Rangers worry about the 2.00 p.m thing at all, they have enough of a workload to do with minimal staff numbers as it is.

Morning.
I'm sorry, but this really cracks me up, exit and entry times for a camping spot. What is that to allow the housemaid time to rake the sand, stock the firewood, and generally tidy the site, for me if I had to be governed by such rules, I would definately be going somewhere else. So essentially you have only 1 full day there, given the check in/checkout times. I realise you have booked, but would it not be more relaxing using the 3 days to do day trips to different spots, who knows you may find a area less crowded and even nicer. Have been to Bribie a few times, but was before the regs were in place, it is a beautiful spot but the sandfies and march flies are not one of it's better attractions.
Cheers and safe driving.

Rules and regulations always essential for over-crowded locations such Bribie and shopping centres.
From memory: the beach in front the camping sites is narrow and tricky to drive with high tide. A very high tide may even get you into an interesting situation.
If I was you I would drive well before high tide and check availability of camp spots. If not, surely after 4pm you'll be able to drive to your pre-booked place.
After all the previous camper would have to vacate well before 2pm to escape the tide (just common sense).
Have fun.

Afternoon Roslyn.
Possibly places like Queen Mary Falls, maybe the Bunya Mountains. Dirty weekends is a good publication for ideas.
Cheers and drive safe.
