Gallagher Point Camping Area

Although there are only six sites available at the Gallagher Point Camping Area, this small camping near Brisbane site offers envious views over the Pumicestone Passage toward the Glass House Mountains and Toorbul. On the western side of the island, Gallagher Point Campgrounds stretches across sand, dirt and grass, therefore, not suitable to two-wheel drive vehicles. This Bribie Island camping area has no facilities, so it is essential to bring water for drinking, gas stoves, firewood, rubbish bags and insect repellent as well as portable toilets to reduce bush toileting.

Note: camp sites here may be closed for bookings at times, due to flooding on very high tides.

Access: 4WD only. There are no launching or recovery facilities for boats.

Camp sites are suitable for: small campervans, caravans and camper trailers; sites are more suitable for tent camping beside your car. Sites accommodate a maximum of six people per site.

Generators: not permitted.

Bookings: book online or learn about our camping booking options.

Mobile phone coverage: poor.

Bribie Island Camping

There are a few rules to camping on Bribie Island. As each camping site is on National Park land, campers must adhere to the following list of rules set out by Queensland National Parks

  • Camp sites must be booked before visiting.
  • Due to being on National Park land, a vehicle access permit is required to reach your campgrounds and must be displayed on your vehicle’s dashboard.
  • To protect fragile areas, camping is only permitted in designated camp sites. Camping is not permitted on the beach foredunes, northern spit or on nearby islands within the marine park.
  • Please camp within the open spaces provided—do not push into vegetated areas or clear new areas for camping. Remain at least 5m away from vegetation at all times.
  • Domestic animals are not permitted.
  • Carry all your rubbish to dispose of appropriately outside of the National Park.

With a high demand for some camping areas, it is recommended that you book 6-weeks in advance of your intended stay. Peak periods, such as public and school holidays, it is recommended to book early to avoid disappointment. Depending on the camping area, you may be able to book from one to 12 months in advance.
