Here’s a personal recommendation from Bob:

“I am staying at this camp called Hangar O which is near Gunalda just 35 kilometres north of Gympie. It has only been open for three weeks but is terrific for $10.00 per night. No Power or water but a toilet and vehicles do not have to be self contained as the area is very dry and they want the grey water on the land. It has a lovely creek and a Billabong.

The young couple Darren and Sam are very friendly and they really look after you with a big fire pit and wood supplied. They even have a coffee truck of a morning.”

You’ll find this Camp Area at 2484 Bruce Highway, Gunalda, (HEMA 13 C13) 1km south of the United Service Station, bookings essential.

There’s toilets available, shade, fireplaces, 25 metre lap swimming pool with toddler pool, 400 metre airstrip with hangar and loads of natural wildlife  – sites are suitable for all sized vans. Microlight flights and luxury tents available. Owner, Darren says that Hangar O is pet friendly when accompanied by responsible owners!

From Gunalda, you can visit Rainbow Beach, Tin Can Bay and Noosa, or travel north to Maryborough, Hervey Bay or Bundaberg. West to Kilkivan, Goomeri or learn about the Gold Rush in nearby Gympie.
