Just out of Appila is the Appila Springs picnic and camping ground. This time-honoured traveller's stop, eight kilometres north-east of Appila, showcases the rolling farm country of the mid-north. It is a beautiful, peaceful part of nature that you won't want to miss when visiting the area. The camping ground is in a quiet nook accessible off Appila-Tarcowie Rd and has public toilets and a picnic area. Bring your own firewood, water and stove. Please note Camping is prohibited during the November-April fire-ban season. Appila Spring itself is a natural spring that was widely used in the late 1800s to water stock travelling to the Jamestown and Gladstone markets, and is home to many native species. Its the perfect spot for self-sufficient travellers seeking an amazing experience and who want to experience this secluded beauty for themselves. It is a tranquil spot that allows you to escape to a different world.

A lovely spot for a few days. Toilet very clean and not trashed by campers. Springs are beautiful to wander. It was certainly cool at night so a camp fire is most welcome. Quiet nights and relaxing days. Everyone there was respectful and quiet. Would certainly stay again


One of my favourite campgrounds for tent camping so far except for the mice. There's A LOT of mice! * Appila is the closest place to fill up on drinking water

Upper level very flat, plenty of space. Lower level a little uneven. Very quiet. A little windy up the top level. Spotless loo. Plenty of rubbish bins. Trees to park in between. Flowing water into the springs. Great spot! Thanks to who ever looks after it!!!
