4 of the Best Destinations in Queensland to Visit in a Camper Trailer

Among the destinations that travellers most desire to explore in Australia, none top the list as much as Queensland. Travellers with camper trailers have even greater access to explore the sunshine state in all of its glory. Here are four of the best destinations in Queensland to visit in a camper trailer.

Palm Cove Holiday Park

As the name suggests, Palm Cove Holiday Park is located in tropical north Queensland. This park is pet-friendly, affordable, and only 30 minutes’ drive from Cairns. Palm Cove is ideal for travellers who are looking for a tropical place to relax. Here you’ll find both powered and unpowered sites suitable for camper trailers. Spaces are relatively large and also grant access to campsite amenities such as a camp kitchen and toilet facilities. Bookings are essential, as there may be limited spaces available throughout the year.

Captain Cook Holiday Village

Captain Cook Holiday Village is home to diverse wildlife that includes lorikeets, kangaroos and bush turkeys. This makes it an ideal spot for travellers who may be seeking more activity on their trip as opposed to relaxing. The park is located in a coastal town called Seventeen Seventy, about an hour and half drive from Gladstone.

Travellers with camper trailers can choose from both unpowered and powered sites as well as the option to stay in a cabin. The site is pet-friendly, affordable and even has a restaurant. There are also an abundance of activities to partake in on-site as well as nearby, with the nearest beach only 900 metres away.

Cape Tribulation

Cape Tribulation offers a unique mix of beach and rainforest environments, making it the ideal location for travellers looking for some diversity in the locations they visit without having to travel long distances.

Interestingly, Cape Tribulation is home to two world heritage listed sites: The Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef. There is also a campground suitable for camper trailers. Amenities include camp kitchens, toilet and shower facilities, and payphones (as there is no mobile reception in this area).

It’s important to note that in order to cross the Daintree River onto Cape Tribulation, you’ll need to board the Daintree Ferry which runs daily from 6am to midnight.

Lake Somerset Holiday Park

Due to being located on the water and having high-quality amenities, Lake Somerset Holiday Park is one of the most popular sites in Queensland for visitors with camper trailers. The park is located centrally between Brisbane, Toowoomba and the Sunshine Coast. It’s roughly an equal distance away from each of these cities – about an hour and half drive.

This may be the most ideal spot on the list for families with small children. There’s a playground, basketball ring, mini-golf course and sports oval available to campers to keep their children entertained. It’s also an ideal location for any traveller wanting to spend more time on the water or participating in water sports. Kayaking and cast-line fishing are popular water based activities available in the park.
