Evening all,

Looking for a spot to go for a week a few hours north of Brisbane in the camper. I have all the essentials so I don't need access to toilets or showers. This will be happening mid June. I've done all the normal spots, but the missus and I are just going to disappear and not tell too many where we are headed.

Any ideas? If hard to find, and you have a GPS reading, and you don't mind giving up a secret spot, I'd appreciate it.

Cheers

Chris.

G'day Chris,
Been meaning to get to a place I'm told is nice.
Deepwater Nat. Park south if Agnes Waters has no facilities
but has some beach driving.
Let me know what it's like if you get there.

Cheers
Moz

Howdy mate,

Appreciate that, I'll note that one down and see if I can find it. If so, I'm guessing I'll need a permit?

Cheers

Chris.

Chris

I am familiar with Deepwater National Park as I live very close by at Gladstone. The only place you can drive on the beach is at Rules Beach.
there is a total ban on beach driving from Wreck Rock to Agnes Water.
Wreck rock is a magic place but because of the limited campsites I reckon you should ring National Parks to book to be sure. Phone number is Bundaberg 07 41311600. There are several National Parks around there all can be booked with this number.
Eurinbula NP is also quite nice in winter but sandflys can be a problem in the hotter months .
Pretty good fishing also.
Have a good one

Howard

I am looking for a similar place, on a river preferably, a few hours from Briss.
Any secret spots would be kept a secret, promise.

We went to Kinkuna National Park, south of Bundaberg and north of Woodgate. If you want to disapear that is the place. Great beach camping, no facilities but very pretty.The easiest way in is on the north side of the park.

Gday Nobby and John,

Is that the one that skirts around the sand mine? I've been up that way before I think, no camp fees etc, just miles of empty beach. Good thick sand to have a good run in as well.

Is that the one?

Cheers

Chris.

Yeah that's it. If you go in on the Northern Entrance you enter just north of the mine (off memory), which is a fair way from the beach. Beautifull camping spots just around that area overlooking the water. I think you are supposed to pay fees in an honesty box. Sand is very soft and you can have a lot of fun.

Hey Chris,

Nobby is on the money and Woodgate itself is also worth a look. You leave the Bruce Highway near Childers and motor in from there.

Most of the other spots I think you know and they are generally pretty populated.

Take it easy.

Agree with Moz on Deepwater NP...nice little camp spot at Agnes Waters...also the town of 1770 is worth a look (if it ain't full of tourists)..good fishing around the rocks of Deepwater.

Gday signman,

Thanks mate. I haven't been to 1770 in ages. Pretty populated up there now? Last time I was there, the mozzies were shockin'. Nice run but.

Cheers

Hi Noddy,
North of the Sand mine is not NP, but if you turn right just before the sand mine & head south, that takes you into the NP area. There are a number of spots behind the dunes & basically all the way south to Theodilite Creek.

Anyone knows if the fine sea weed is still lurking up at Fraser?..Makes fishing really difficult when its there. Been up there twice in the last 18 months and the weed is still there?
