We love camping&try to explore different places many times a year.
We have travelled to Darwin via Central Queensland,Stanage bay,Yeppon,The Narrows(off Gladstone),Burrum Heads,Eurimbala NP(1770),Baffle Creek,Lake Awoonga&many more in our local area.

Next week we are off to Hat Head NP,Forster&Barrington Tops..

First timers down South we always seem to go North.

Looking forward to being part of the camping community

Hat Head is a beautiful spot - the main camping ground is at the end of the village with the bowling club at the entrance. Foster is very commercial (suggest you look into Sand Bar as a camping spot it is further along the Lake Way past Pacific Palms)) the Barringtons are generally unserviced camp sites in the National Park. Pick up a Guide from any National Parks Office.

Hi,

Not sure about Hat Head not much there I think. Forster been there plenty of times, we stay at the Great Lakes CP on the Tuncurry side, it is very clean and set on the river bank. It is about a 15 to 20 minute easy walk back to the Tuncurry shopping centre.

Barrington Tops is ok if you are in to bush walking not sure about camping up there. I know that there is a motel there but they say it is expensive.

Happy Travels
