Camping

No advance bookings taken (we have plenty of camp space).
Prices mentioned below are for 2017.

We have two campgrounds; one at the Homestead and the other is 5km away on the banks of the Drysdale River (details below). PLEASE NOTE: We don't take advance camping bookings at all, for either camp. The reason is because so many people like or need to alter the pre-planned progress of their trip. Then due to a lack of mobile coverage or public phones we found they were unable to tell us of this alteration in their plans. We had people turning up days early, days late and not at all; the booking system was a disaster! Payment for either camp area can be made at the shop 8 am to 5 pm daily and at the Homestead bar / reception during the evening hours of 5 pm to 8.30 pm daily. Check in and registration is essential, prior to setting up camp.


The HOMESTEAD Campground

Adult $16.00 per night. Child $6 ( 5 to 15 years ) - under 5 years, no charge.

This camp area offers hot showers and toilets in a great ablution block. There is also a coin operated laundry and plenty of clothes lines. We do have a small number of powered sites available on a first in, first served basis; no advance bookings are taken. The general camping area is large and provides plenty of space. Its an easy short stroll to the bar and the Homestead Restaurant.


MINERS POOL (No Advance Bookings Taken)

 

Adult $12.00 per night, Children Free.

You are welcome at no charge to day visit or picnic and swim on the way past but all campers are required to register at the homestead, prior to camping.

This large camp area is 5km from the Homestead and situated on the banks of the Drysdale River, overlooking the pool. It is an open area with slashed native grass, trees for shade, easy access to the water and basic pit toilets.

Please TAKE YOUR RUBBISH WITH YOU, to the nearest rubbish dump-point (*see below). This is very important as dingo's and crows immediately break open and spread any bags of rubbish left behind. Please do not put your rubbish down the pit toilets; this is not the place for it !
*A rubbish tip is now available directly across the road from Drysdale's main entrance gate.
It is also essential that you TOTALLY extinguish your camp fire on departure.
