NEW: Camp Barrabadeen, Lake Tinaroo, North QLD

Barrabadeen Scout Camp is our newest listing! Located near Atherton, Queensland, it has 3.3 km of shoreline, sheltered coves and half a kilometre of sandy beach! 

They tell us Lake Tinaroo is three quarters the size of Sydney Harbour! Learn about the Yidinji People and culture, as well as pioneer and WWII history. And did you know, the world record barramundi and sooty grunter have been caught at this lake?

Since the dam was filled in 1964, the site has been leased to the Tableland District Scout Association.
