Camp Site for 2WD Campervan between Brisbane - New Italy

Postby Suzyc » Tue Jun 10, 2008 4:02 pm

Hi, we are driving from Brisbane to New Italy for arrival on Saturday 14th.
Accom on Saturday is taken care of but weare looking for somewhere to stop on the way down (Friday night) and the way back (Sunday night).
Usually we prefer bush camping (with toilets) in our tent but this time around we have hired a 2WD campervan and we are also seeking hot showers.
We would prefer National Park/State Forest style camping but will consider privately owned camp grounds as long as they are not too commercialised or over-populated. Any tips would be great!
Have I forgotten any vital info that will help narrow the search down?
Thanks
Suzy.

Do you want somewhere roughly half way to break the trip, or is that not of any concern?

Hi Amanda
We're not overly concerned with where to break the trip as it's not a long drive from Brisbane to New Italy really.
We're just looking to discover new territory and not sure where we can go having the campervan instead of a tent.
Thanks
Suzy.

Hi Suzy

You could choose to stay in our campground in the Tweed Valley. No-one else in on Friday and Sunday nights but you would need to depart by about 10.00am on Monday morning to avoid a big group.

Have a look at the link below.

Broken Head Holiday Park is a good spot. http://www.brokenhd.com.au/

There is also Broadwater National Park which is pretty close to New Italy, but definetely worth a look, particularly if you prefer a national park to an actual tourist type park. http://www2.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/pa ... 07&Type=xo

Hi Amanda,

I thought of Broken Head Holiday Park too but my partner is fussy, he thinks it's too 'populated' and not serene enough! Bah! hahaha. I'll try to convince him!
As for the suggestion of Broadwater National Park, I went to the website link you provided and it states NO CAMPING...?? Do you know otherwise?

Cheers
Suzy.
