Top Sunshine Coast camping sites and holiday parks
- Gallagher Point Offers bush camping in its purest form. There are a limited number of sites and no toilets or facilities, so it’s truly back-to-basics style of camping, but beautiful nonetheless.
- Poverty Creek Don’t let the name deter you. Poverty Creek is a stunning campsite with plenty of room and manicured sites under shady trees. There are toilets and showers available, but the water is not suitable for drinking, so be sure to bring the essentials.
- Ocean Beach Camp amongst the dunes at Ocean Beach campsite. The secluded location offers toilets and showers but again the water is not suitable for drinking, so come prepared.
