“Eurimbula National Park is great for any kind of camping getaway, from a romantic campers night under the stars to an activity packed adventure among nature.

“Located at the mouth of Eurimbula Creek, this bush camp is set in shady, low eucalypt woodland, with walking track access to the beach and nearby creek.

“Take a relaxing stroll along the beach during low tide, or head up to the creek to snag a catch for dinner.

“If you’re bringing a small boat, you’ll find a boat ramp at nearby Eurimbula Creek.”

There’s plenty for the whole family to do in Eurimbula National Park including bush walking,

taking in the view at Ganoonga Noonga lookout, swimming and fishing, and admiring the native flora such as blue gums, Moreton Bay ash, pink bloodwoods, casuarinas and weeping cabbage palms.
