Sunshine Coast Dog Friendly Camp Spots – Of course if you are reading this you would hate leaving your four legged best friend behind on your family holiday, because as we all know they are part of the family.
We have some great dog friendly destinations that we are sure you are going to love.
Bluff Creek is set on 100 acres of rolling hills, it is a camp spot which is abundant with native trees and wildlife. It fronts both the Mary River and the creek that gives the camp spot its name! Dogs are very welcome at Bluff Creek, and the more precious among us will appreciate the flushing toilets and hot showers. And d’ya wanna know the icing on the cake? The campground is also within arm’s reach of Kenilworth’s delicious eateries…did someone say cheese?
Borumba Deer Park is a special little camping spot in Imbil that is a must do. It is situated on the beautiful Yabba Creek. There is truckloads to do here, such as swimming, fishing and kayaking…not to mention saying ‘hello’ to a couple of deer! For a little more action, just down the creek is Borumba Dam, where you can water-ski and jet boat! But the best part, for a measly $3 per day, you can bring your pupper along for all the fun—two of the park’s three campsites are dog-friendly.
Gleaming white sand and clear blue seas make ever-popular Inskip Point a paradise for humans and dogs alike! Just a hop, skip and a jump from Rainbow Beach, Tin Can Bay and Fraser Island, you’re literally surrounded by some of Queensland’s most spectacular beachy spots. There are five campgrounds to choose from at Inskip—with some better suited to 4WD vehicles than others—but you’ll have to be a lil’ strategic when it comes to picking a site because it’s first in, best dressed and she gets busy!
A wee drive up the highway towards Gympie, the Amamoor Creek camping spot is tucked inside the Amamoor State Forest. Getting to this little oasis is pretty easy—just follow Amamoor Creek Road and you don’t need a 4WD! An open, grassy campsite enclosed by iron bark and blue gums, scenic rainforest walks are aplenty and there are tracks of all-lengths and levels. It’s dog-friendly and doggos will go craaaazy over the creek, but keep a close eye on them—the water is also home to frogs and platypuses!
This large grassy camping area with a maximum capacity of 120 people is on the south-eastern edge of Brooyar State Forest. There is a day-use area with picnic tables and wood BBQs, and open fires are allowed in the designated fire rings. From the south, the campground is on the right just past the entrance to the forest; from the north it is on the left, 2 km past the entrance. Bring your own firewood, as gathering wood is prohibited.
Imagine waking up to uninterrupted views of Lake Cootharaba, its pristine waters only mere steps from your bed. Some would call this the dream, but luckily for us all, it’s a reality at Boreen Point! The lakefront campground at Boreen Point is the real deal, with sites set in practically untouched natural bushland just steps from the lake’s sandy foreshore. Dogs are definitely allowed, but only in non-peak times, and by prior application—so make sure you follow all the correct steps prior to booking to avoid being a sad camper.
