Queensland is rich in natural beauty and home to some of Australia's top national parks. Victoria alone has enough parks to keep you exploring for months. When you're looking for the top spots to take your Jeep camping, with or without the family, you've got a wealth of choices nearby, but these are some of our favourite camping spots.  

·       Girraween National Park - On the border of QLD and NSW, about 260km southwest of Brisbane, you'll find Girraween National Park. The name Girraween means, "a place of flowers," and in the springtime, it lives up to its name with outrageously colourful displays of wildflowers in bloom. In stark contrast stand granite outcrops, balancing rock formations, and toes, which are nothing short of breathtaking in their magnitude. There are two campgrounds within the park, both of which offer hot showers and flushing toilets, picnic tables, and fire pits. There are short, fairly levels walking tracks from the campgrounds, and longer, more challenging hikes nearby, some with swimming holes.  

·       Bigriggen Park - Bigriggen Park, located in Rathdowney, is an ideal destination for Jeep camping with the family, including the dog. The park encompasses 100 acres: 45 acres of hilltops to explore, and 55 acres of gently rolling river flats for camping, swimming, and strolling. There is space for caravan camping and bush camping available. In the developed campground, there are shade trees and grass for comfortable camping, along with an amenities block where you can purchase groceries, wood, and ice, as well as bait for fishing. Flushing toilets, hand basins, and hot-water showers are available in the developed camping area, and bush campers can use them, as well.   

·       Eurimbula National Park - If coastal camping is more your style, you'll find Eurimbula National Park about 400km north of Brisbane, near the town of Agnes Water. There are two camping areas, at Eurimbula Creek and at Middle Creek. The roads to get to each of them require high-clearance 4WD drive vehicles, and you'll have fun driving them in your Jeep. At Eurimbula Creek, you'll have lovely shade from the eucalyptus woodlands, and there are only 17 campsites, so you'll enjoy an uncrowded experience with the beach nearby. There are composting toilets and tap water though you should treat the tap water before considering it potable. Middle Creek is an open camping area and a much more rustic experience. If you plan to camp at Middle Creek, bring your own everything, because, beyond composting toilets and fire pits, the campground is largely undeveloped.
