Gladstone is ok, about 6 km from the h.way and right on the water. Used to be an old shipping port. Still has remnants of the old jetty there. I has basic facilities, toilet and rubbish disposal. You have to bring your own water. There are quite a few camp sites and if you arrive early enough in the afternoon you would be very unlucky not to get a site. I think there is a nominal charge but not sure about that. The only problem may be rain. The track in, through a gate, can become impassable after about 10mm rain. Good luck. Cheers

Good place for a stopover once the track in is dry.Lots of room to find a spot .There are drop toilets and an honour box for camping fees.THe fishing would be non existent from the shore as it is very shallow for a long way out at high tide and vertually mud flats at low tide.Can also get very windy at times.Inormally use it as a overnight stop.
