Where to camp at Julia Creek, Queensland

This fantastic little town in North West Queensland, has two sites for camping…

Julia Creek RV Stop

If you’d like to stay at the RV Stop, you must have a fully self-contained RV, no tents. In this shire, that means “built in and/or propriety brand toilets secured in the van” with a black water holding tank or toilet cassette and no portable showers.

You’ll need to collect a permit, valid for 96 hours, from the Julia Creek Visitor Information Centre, or from onsite camp hosts in peak season (April to September).

The RV Stop is just 1 km east of town. Camp either side of the little bridge. There’s water, BBQs, picnic tables, shade and views. It has our Camps Australia Wide tick of approval – this pretty spot has it all.

Julia Creek RV Stop is free, pet friendly, creek-side and you can walk to town.

Please note: there are no fires, pets are to be restrained and no dumping of garbage or black/grey water. A donation box is onsite.

Julia Creek Caravan Park

As well as the artesian baths, we were very comfortable in our drive through site here, bordered by bouganvillia. 

The park is pet friendly, with cabins, suitable for all types of camping. 

There is a great big camp kitchen… 

excellent amenities…

and sunsets and sunrises to die for!

And what a place to visit. I’d love to come back for another soak, the Monday night Bush Dinners (held at the Caravan Park, and also open to RV Stop travellers, but closed due to COVID), free bike hires and some of their renowned events and race meets.
