Definitely one of the better camping areas, however the experience is marred by the backpacker campsite less than 100 meters from the fenced area. The budget backpacker tours use this site 4 nights a week and seem to spend the time here playing music, getting drunk and singing drinking games till around midnight each night. I don't understand why QNPWS would allow a private tour operator to camp so close to the public area. I would stay again but research which nights the tour groups are present.

Perfect campsite, fit the camper trailer easy! Great view, hardly anyone camped here!


Cornwells has a well kept secret that we discovered by accident. In addition to the sites behind the dunes, there is a fenced area with 12 nice sites which are marked out for tents or camper trailers. To find it, come in the scenic drive entrance, turn immediately right passing the dump station and keep going for 150-200m and you'll see the high gate on your left. Just before the gate, when we came through, there were some semi-perm tents with porta-loos set up in a temporary electric fence on the right. They were very tidy and appeared unoccupied, maybe set up for a group trip? I don't think that would be a problem though. We had the whole fenced site to ourselves in school holidays, it doesn't look like it gets much use. The birds are really beautiful. Would recommend.
