Gold Coast: Camping

Surfer's paradise

Gold Coast Camping

The Gold Coast has a wide range of great spots for a camping holiday in and around the city, with many more ideal locations in the surrounding area of Queensland. The closest camping park to the city centre is found off Gold Coast Highway in Southport, fantastic for holidaymakers looking to stick close to city comforts and still get an authentic bushland experience.

Other local options that offer caravan parking are in Burleigh Heads, which offers a great and affordable camping holiday. Away from the centre, Coolangatta and Canungra is a very shady camp ground and more secluded area. Further afield, the beautiful hinterland surrounding the Gold Coast offers a wonderful host of camping opportunities - Tamborine Mountain and Green Mountains two excellent sites to the west of the city, which are close to the natural wonders of Springbrook and Lamington National Park. So whether you wish to stay close to the city or head out into the beautiful mountainous hinterland of Queensland, the Gold Coast caters for everything a camping holiday could want, and provides an inexpensive stay close to some of Australia’s finest natural beauty.
