Moreton Island camping areas has a range of great camping spots, with some offering more facilities than others. Here is a rundown on what Moreton Island has available for camper trailers.

Ben-Ewa Camping Area

This camping area is located approx 1 klm north of the barge landing point or 7 klm south of Bulwer township. Tucked back from the western beach offering sheltered campsites from the weather. Offering toilet facilities, cold showers and portable toilet waste disposal point.

Camp fires are allowed and there are 12 sites on offer, you can fit a camper trailer into some of the sites.

As not a lot of turning area when you drive in from the beach, I would walk in first to see what is available.

Moreton Island camping areas Comboyuro Point

47 camp sites are located here and are spread out over a large area. Parks have provided toilets, cold showers, chemical toilet disposal and water for campers. Camp fires are permitted and you can drive in towing a camper trailer to find your campsite.

ThisĀ  area Moreton Island camping areas has lots of trees for shade and walking tracks to the beach. As it’s a big area, depending on where you camp, you could end up being a long way from the showers and toilets, so I’d go prepared with your own. All our camper trailers come provided with outdoor shower and chemical toilet.

The camping area is not far from the township of Bulwer and if you need any supplies or want a takeaway, this makes it popular.

North West Camping Area

This is by far the most popular of the Moreton Island camping areas with 76 camping sites spread out from just south of Cowan township to the Bulwer bypass. A lot have beautiful water views and are private.

 

Campfires are allowed and generators. In peak times it can be hard to get a spot here, there is a couple of spots that are hidden from view and this is were local knowledge comes in.

Camper trailers are only suitable for probably 30% of this zone, as you need a good turning area and flat approach, otherwise you will get bogged.
