Sceptical that the best things in life are free? Well, we’re determined to change your mind.
Now, we all know that Queensland has no shortage of beautiful camping spots (or, maybe you don’t. In that case, prepare to be amazed). From instagrammable beaches to spectacular wildernesses, ancient rainforests and so much more, there’s a bunch of must-see campsites to explore no matter what your idea of a relaxing time may be. But we also know that life comes with no shortage of daily expenses. And when your bank account is looking low (but you’re in desperate need of an escape), you shouldn’t have to put your holiday on hold in favour of the daily grind.
Fortunately, there are plenty of free campsites to try all throughout Queensland! So, if you’re pinching pennies, you don’t need to cancel your getaway plans. Instead, you can take advantage of the great outdoors using what camping equipment you already have, and nothing more!
Here are 5 of the top free camping spots across Queensland:
1. Babinda Rotary Park Campground
Babinda Rotary Park has got it all; fresh water, a super convenient bathroom block, waste bins, BBQs and the most picturesque, crystal clear lake for either swooning over in the moment, or snapping a pic to make your friends jealous with later. The campsite also allows pets, so you won’t have to worry about leaving your furry friends at home!

2. Cumberland Historic Mine Site
The Cumberland Historic Mine Site boasts equal parts beautiful scenery and rich mining history- perfect for those who love an adventure backed with a story! There are plenty of places to pitch a tent or set up an RV on-site. To make life a little easier, there are also drop toilets and picnic areas available.
3. Bedford Weir
If you’re an angler at heart, then Bedford Weir is a must-see camping destination for you. Featuring a boat ramp so you can take out your vessels, along with undercover picnic tables, hot showers, flushing toilets as well as a lake perfect for swimming, it’s a great place to stop by and enjoy plenty of water activities.
4. Fletcher Creek
Fletcher’s Creek provides both campers and caravanners alike with the chance to pitch their tent or set up their RV right by the water’s edge. Aside from having toilets and showers available, campfires are also permitted (so you can finally whip out marshmallows). You can stay up to a month at Fletcher’s Creek, so it’s the ideal place to relax and recuperate if you’re in need of a long holiday..
5. Clem Walton Park
Head out to Clem Walton Park and set up your tent or caravan around the tranquil Corella Dam, which is absolutely brimming with red claw yabbies (and has plenty of BBQ’s available to make a feast out of whatever you catch). Surrounded by Australian bushland, it’s the perfect place to get lost amongst nature.
