School_Holiday_Camping_BrisbaneCamping is a fun and inexpensive way for families to enjoy the state’s natural beauty, but planning is essential. Are you looking for a camping venue for the school holidays? Did you know that Christmas is the busiest time of year with a quarter of the state’s annual camping trips in national parks and forests taking place over the summer school holidays? Last summer, Queensland’s parks and forests hosted more than 97,000 campers who spent nearly 312,000 nights.

Fraser Island, Inskip and Cooloola were the most popular destinations last year, hosting 50 percent of summer holiday campers.

The latest park and safety information is on the QLD Govt’s Park Alert website and families should always check ahead to ensure conditions are favourable. If you book your campsite online, Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service rangers will also be able to contact you in advance if severe weather events or natural disasters strike.
