Adder Rock

Having recently stayed at Adder Rock I can honestly say it’s one of my favourite campgrounds. There are plenty of different camping areas available with absolute beach front sites available for tents. Powered and unpowered sites are aplenty, and the recent addition of glamping tents and cabins provide even more accommodation options. Facilities are great with toilets and showers at both ends of the park. Goannas, Koalas and kangaroos are regularly spotted throughout the grounds.

Cylinder Beach

With all campsites being within a short stroll to the beach, and protected from South-Easterly winds by its northerly aspect, Cylinder Beach is one of the more popular camping grounds on North Stradbroke Island. With great surfing straight out front, and lovely sand for the kids to play on, Cylinder Beach is definitely a camp ground to check out. Closeby is the Stradbroke Island pub, which is great for a feed and few drinks whilst you look out over the ocean and Moreton Island in the distance.
