This campsite by reviews is definitely a must-stop for the frugal camper. It is an absolutely spectacular spot and when planning your road trip around Australia, make sure you plant this as one of your stops. It has been voted in the top 5 best camping spots in all of Queensland and it really lives up to it.

Notch Point campground is set in quite the tropical scenery with palm trees which sway in the winds. You can actually find coconuts sitting under the trees waiting for your devouring. The weather in this area being tropical is obviously quite humid and muggy.

Bear in mind the trip to this location is a little remote and can be a bit of a rough drive from the end of Notch Point Rd to Yarrawonga Park Reserve. It is recommended to be only accessed via 4WD only. The campsite is randomly set in a cattle property where you will find cows roaming and you may also find that they snuggle up near your tent at night. A very unique camping experience.

There are amazing views on the hill which gives views around the whole peninsula. The one massive word of warning is that its not exactly a location for swimming. It is infested with saltwater crocs and sharks. At your own risk, couldn’t be emphasised any stronger.

This is just the ideal spot for people wanting to laze around and just relax, the weather is ideal and the windy weather at times can make for a refreshing change.
