Another local option is Brisbane Holiday Village, which offers the ultimate getaway for families, couples or groups wanting to kick back, unwind and enjoy being together. Away from the centre, Adder Rock Holiday Park on East Coast Road sits at the entrance to North Stradbroke Island's beautiful Point Lookout and is a very shady camp ground, nestled behind Adder Rock Headland and sheltered from the westerly winds - perfect for couples looking for a secluded camping holiday near to Brisbane.

The adjoining surf beach looks North West to Moreton Island and North East to the sparkling Pacific Ocean, a relaxed country getaway with the added attraction of a golden beach right on its doorstep. There is plenty to see and do nearby, with several freshwater lakes, waterways and lagoons to explore. For those chasing a bit of fun and adventure, there are four wheel drive safaris, fishing charters, sea kayaking tours as well as a golf course. For those looking to camp further afield, Broadwater Tourist Park in nearby Southport has one of the best locations on all of the Gold Coast.

Located directly on the water’s edge of the Broadwater its named after, the park has enviable views southwards towards the high-rises of Surfers Paradise. So whether you wish to stay close to the city or head out into the beautiful hinterland or along the wonderful coastline, Brisbane caters for everything a camping holiday could want, and provides an inexpensive stay close to some of the world’s finest natural beauty.
