Glass House Mountains Camping

We have a good variety of Glass House Mountains Camping opportunities for you in the local area.

Unfortunately you are not allowed to camp in the Glasshouse Mountains National Park, but you can camp in a variety of other places.

Camp Sites

Beerwah Sportsground Camping

Dump Point Available (see caretaker)


Update : January 2015

The campground is now reopened but has a 72 hour stay limit.


This is a great site, especially for large vans and motor homes. Sites are $20 per night for two people which includes power, toilets and showers are also provided.

For people with kids, there is a small playground, the public swimming pool and skate park are right next door as well as the sports field to kick a footy / play cricket / run around.

It is a short walk to town (about 5 minutes), with Aldi Supermarket even closer.

Don't forget to check out the rest of my site for things to do and a whole heap more about the local area.

Landsborough Pines Caravan Park Camping

This is a nice shady park with water as a feature and plenty of wildlife.

The camping area has a BBQ area and camp kitchen available to campers. They also have cabins, units and villas available.

They pride themselves on being the closest caravan park to Australia Zoo.

I have stayed there years ago and members of my family have stayed there on a number of occasions over the years and have found it a great place to stay and very relaxing.

At $35 per couple per night (low season) and $38 (high season) for a powered sit, it isn't the cheapest option around but it is very central and really is a nice place to stay.

Landsborough Pines C'van Park

Steve Irwin Way

Landsborough 4550

Ocean View Tourist Park, Landsborough Camping

This caravan park which is just up the hill from Landsborough, on the way to Maleny.

They have camping available, which has a camp kitchen with BBQ.

They also have self contained ensuite cabins available.

I have stayed there, many years ago and it was quite a nice park then and I'm sure it still is.



Free Glass House Mountains Camping

We have one dedicated free camp in the area, it is at the corner of Steve Irwin (Glass House Mountains Tourist Drive) at Glenview, which is not far from the Ettamogah Pub and Aussie World.

It is controlled by the Main Roads Department and you can stay for a maximum of 20 hours.

It has plenty of shady trees, BBQ facility, shelter shed and can be quite busy as it is very close to the highway.

It also has a couple of very nice walks out the back of the campig area. The Mooloolah River Circuit (500m) and the Melaleuca Walk (1.3km). They are both pretty flat and very easy to do.

For more challenging walks in the Glass House Mountains area visit my Walks Page.


Now the following places are not official camping areas and I am not endorsing them at all. I am just pointing out other places I have noticed camper vans / motor homes / caravans parked overnight.

They also do not have any facilities and most are around housing or public places, so if I were thinking about parking there I would be very low key.


Matthew Flinders Park

Is a great little rest area and used to be the site of the Glass House Mountains Tourist Information Van (you can still see the painted signs for it on the carpark surface).

You will find it on Steve Irwin Way between Beerburrum and Glass House Mountains township.

This is a nice quiet spot away from houses, a lot of people stop here during the day for a picnic or just to use the toilets (wheel chair accessible).

It can also be the starting place of some of the walks, Trachyte Circuit, Tibrogargan Circuit and Tibrogargan Summit Climb.

I have removed some of the places I have seen people park their camper vans as I have found out there are a few people setting up with no facilities and then proceed to use the side of the road as a toilet and that is just not something I want to promote.

However, if you have a recommendation for a place to free camp (or low cost) in the local area, please let me know, either through my Visitors Book or the form below. If suitable, I will include it on my site and give you credit if you want.
