The Vehicle Access fee is: "1 week or less = $41.75; more than 1 week (up to 1 year) = $130.40." All fees are payable in advance, usually on-line. Rangers can issue on-the-spot fines. Don't risk it!

Lime Pocket bush camping sites, on the usually protected western side of Bribie Island, is in a designated Queensland Recreation Area. The six campsites may be closed occasionally due to flooding on very high tides. It is reached only by boat. Sites offer scenic views over the Pumicestone Passage and the Glass House Mountains – especially at sunset.

The usual National Park rules apply (no generators, pets and firewood apply). The campsite has no facilities. Open fires are allowed (except when fire bans apply) in fire rings only, but fuel stoves recommended. To avoid chemicals, nails, screws, bolts, etc., firewood should be untreated mill off-cuts.

It is advisable to carry water for drinking, cooking and washing; gas stoves (preferred); rubbish bags; and insect repellent. Visitors camping away from facilities are encouraged to bring portable toilets to help reduce bush toileting. Mosquitoes and midges can create a problem, so be prepared.
