We are departing for our Cape trip next week and have found it difficult to get camping accommodation in Cairns for Friday night (they all want minimum 2 nights stay).

Anyone have a recommendation regarding a camping spot north of cairns.... the following night will be at the Lions Den so we don't need to get too far past Cairns.

thanks

I normally stay at Wonga Beach between Mossman and Daintreee.
closer to ferry than Cairns but a lovely spot .

Wonderful Wonga ! The unpowered area at Wonga Beach CP is great - acres of grass tp park on, shaded by palms and spreading trees. Coconuts on the beach - exotic birds (feathered ones) - can't wait to get back there.

Can highly recommend Fishery Falls C.park some 30 kms south of Cairns .I have not found a better or more friendly spot,tariff very moderate around $20-$25.You can easily get to the Lions Den from there.Either by Bloomfield or via the super highway thru Mareeba..Muz

Hi Glenn

Have you tried Lake Placid (north side of Cairns)?

Lake Placid Tourist Park

A lovely spot, and you can check vacancies and book on line - there seems to be no two night restrictions.

Thanks all for the ideas, I have now rung a few of these as well as palm Cove and ellis beach and it seems that we should have no problem grabbing a spot somewhere north of Cairns.

Thanks
Glenn
