Camping comes in many forms. For some people, it’s a comfy caravan with all the bells and whistles, for others, it’s an open swag under the stars.

Camping can be a break from the city, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It can also be a way of life, trekking through the outback in your 4WD with your off-road caravan exploring the wilderness.

With a Kimberley Kamper, there’s no reason you can’t have luxury while having an authentic camping experience off the beaten track.

Queensland is full of camping areas to go off the grid with zero distraction and plenty of adventure.

Here’s five camping spots in Queensland to set up your camper trailer and caravan.

1. Sundown National Park, Sundown

Sundown National Park Camping

Located on the Queensland and New South Wales border about 250km south-west of Brisbane. This is easily one of the best camping spots in Queensland. Discover the Sundown National Park’s mountainous hinterland scenery.

Campsites are accessible by 4WD tracks only with plenty of extra hidden campsites deep in the bush.

There are lots of steep gorges and rivers to explore for experienced campers with tracks leading to waterholes and rivers throughout the area.

If you have a 4WD vehicle, load up your camper, hit the road and go set up bush camp at Sundown.

2. Kilcowera Station, Thargomindah

Kilcowera Station is a remote camping spot, perfect for a couple of nights when you’re on a trip through the Queensland outback. You can camp near the Shearers Quarters, or the Cardenyabba Lagoon and relax by the water with only the sounds of nature, water and maybe the kids.

3. North West Island, Southern Great Barrier Reef

Near Gladstone, there is an island. An island called North-West Island. If you prefer beach to bush, this is the place to go. Home to the second-largest coral cay in the Great Barrier Reef, there is a reef teeming with life beneath the pristine water.

North West Island is a wild camper’s dream, be prepared to survive. You’ll need to bring your own potable water and stove, and composting toilets are as advanced as it gets in the facilities department.

However, your new island home for the weekend will have million-dollar waterfront views because you can set up camp wherever you want.

To get there you’ll need to take the Curtis Island Ferry from Gladstone or get there by boat.

This is no glamping destination so be prepared before you go and take everything you would need for your stay.

4. Munga-Thirri National Park, Simpson Desert

Munga-Thirri National Park
If you’re after the most star-filled skies you’ve ever seen, add this one to your adventure list.

Located about 1500km west of Brisbane, close to Birdsville, you’ll only have the company of yourself and whoever you bring. On your way out there, stop by the Birdsville Hotel for a drink and stop off at Big Red. We promise you won’t be disappointed.

The wide, openness of the Simpson Desert can’t be understated. The red desert and its remoteness can make you feel small, but the sunsets and night sky prove how worthwhile it is.

It’s seriously far so stock up and be prepared.

5. Riversleigh World Heritage Site, Boodjamulla National Park

Riversleigh World Heritage Fossil Site, Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill) National Park
In the North of outback Queensland, there is an ancient art form known as fossicking that people have been doing for generations.

Riversleigh is a world heritage site that has many fossil sites scattered throughout the bush. Home to a variety of natural history, you may just stumble across a dinosaur while you’re sifting and digging out there.

To get there, go to Mount Isa, head north for about 207km, head west for about 100km of Gregory Downs and you’ve got it. As you can probably tell, camping is particularly remote so self-sufficiency is key.

Wherever you choose to go next on your off-road adventures, trust a Kimberley Kamper to get you there in comfort and style. Our off-road caravans can take to all of these places and more while letting you have your creature comforts.
