⛺️ FREE Camping Townsville – Bluewater Park Rest Area, QLD

Share It!

There are no free camps in Townsville itself, but Bluewater offers Free Camping and is only about 30km North of the city. The Rest Area provides a great space to safely unhitch and explore.

It was huge, with plenty of room for everyone, but it did fill up late each day. Not to mention flushing loos, outdoor shower, big park for the kids, shady trees, rubbish bins and a dump point. 

There were also multiple potable water taps spotted along the back of the campsites. It was really easy to plug in the hose and top up the tanks before we left. You really can’t go wrong!
