Free accommodation near Cairns

Free camping just 20 minutes south of Cairns. We spent a while at this spot, and the one previous post ‘Free camping at Gordonvale, near Cairns‘ just doesn’t show how great this spot was. Enough said, photo time…

1986 Ford Spectron campervan modified with annex.

One of the many iterations of the van setup.

This is the main and most easily accessible camp area which is sign posted and free to stay. Some campers had been there for weeks.

Some of the local wildlife.

One of two Goanna's that frequently walked buy then climbed the trees. Click the image above to view a large version of this photo.

Beautiful spot, just be wary of crocodiles and rain as this area can flash flood.
