Mission Point Camping Area

A 12-site camping area near Brisbane, Mission Point lays just off the western shores of Bribie Island. The campsite is a favourite for avid fishers and campers looking to enjoy a quiet weekend. A boat-only camping area, the closest boat ramp and vehicle parking is available at Donnybrook. Other boat ramps include Toorbul, Sandstone Point, Golden Beach, Bells Creek and Coochin Creek on the mainland while Bongaree and Bellara boat ramps are the main launching points on Bribie Island.

With relatively protected anchorage near the campsites, campers can pitch a tent and cast a line while enjoying the views out across Pumicestone Passage toward the Glasshouse Mountains. Local catches include flathead, bream, whiting, tailor and mangrove jack. If you’re lucky, you may spot a dugong on seagrass beds. A quick stroll along Mission Point during low tide will reveal the number of birds of prey that call Bribie Island home such as ospreys and sea eagles as well as other migratory birds.

Although water taps are available on-site, it is not suitable for drinking, so it is essential you bring your own water and other essentials such as firewood, rubbish bags and insect repellent.
