Nestled beside the Amamoor Creek and set among woodlands of iron barks and blue gums, this spacious grassy camping area is popular during the annual Gympie Music Muster, held during the last week of August, which attracts thousands of visitors.

The Gympie Music Muster can assist with camp bookings and enquiries from late July to early September.

This camping area is also busy over school and public holidays but at other times it's ideal for peaceful camping and star gazing on clear nights.

The family pet doesn’t have to stay behind—you can even camp with your dog here.
