How good does this look? Downfall Creek Camp on Lake Tinaroo is located in the Danbulla forest, a spectacular part of the Atherton Tableland, Queensland.
You can spend the day on the water, fishing, waterskiing and swimming, or enjoy the Regeneration walk that leads to the Kauri Creek camping area.
CAMPS ambassadors, Dan and Manda said: We had a planned 2 nights stay here, however it turned into 6 nights since you can’t get a better lake side camp in the Atherton Tablelands area! Swimming, camp fires, off grid living, wildlife, and we ran into our friends… so hung out for a bit with them! As you can tell the boys had some fun!
Plus it was a great office as there is reception!! It is also a popular place for the watersports locals with fisherpeople, boaters, kayaks, SUPs, wakeboarders, the list goes on!
It was busy but was buzzing with fun! A great camp that is National Park (so no dogs allowed), no other facilities other than toilets so you need to fairly self-sufficient.
Covering 12,000ha between the Tinaroo and Lamb ranges, it includes eucalypt and acacia forests, pine plantations and Wet Tropics World Heritage rainforest. Camping surfaces are grass and gravel with separate unnumbered sites. there are accessible toilets. Camp sites are suitable for tents, camper trailers and campervans. Access may be difficult for heavy vehicles after rain, with 5 km of unsealed road.
Like our ambassadors, we give this idyllic site the CAMPS tick of approval!
