This campsite is now closed.  Greenpatch Reserve 11 kilometres north east to Gordonvale offers the closest camping for all vehicles and has modern  amenities. Alternatively Goldsborough Valley offers 4WD only camping around 20kilometres to the south.  You can find these and more sites in this area in our latest edition Camps 12 book and our CAMPS Australia Wide App.

 

 

Thanks to Phil Hughes for this update.

We are staying at a free camp on the Little Mulgrave Creek, approx 11kms west of Gordonvale and 46kms east of Atherton, Queensland. Co ordinates: 17 8’ 22” S  145 43”26” E.

From Gordonvale you travel 11kms on Gillies Highway, turn right where a sign says Catch a Barra 4km, immediately before the bridge going over the Little Mulgrave Creek. Immediately over the bridge is the Mountain View Hotel.

There is room for 20 vans under shade.

The only water is from the creek which is clear and tastes like spring water.

There are no facilities ie toilets, showers etc, it is for self contained vehicles only.

Phil says it has great access to the pub, and is a site worth visiting, it is now on our App and will be out in CAMPS 10! Thanks Phil – please send your updates to us email or via our website. (link www.campsaustraliawide.com/update-service/feedback/)
