WHAT MAKES IT REAL?

WILD AND FREE...

Eastern Outback free camping Australia - Drummond Queensland


A beautiful real camping site!


This camping ground is a lookout point, high on a hill, with amazing views of the Drummond Ranges in the Central Highlands.

There isn’t much room up here, just a loop of tarmac and stretch of grass with a couple of picnic table on it. This camping area is not suitable for large vehicles, but is fine for caravans.


If you are tent camping you can get away from the vehicles because they are not allowed on the grass.


Not only is this a a nice wild camping spot to spend a night, but it is also really convenient - being 3 hours from Longreach and 1 hour from Emerald.
