Camping is the ultimate way to relax and reset, away from the hustle of your day-to-day. The Sunshine Coast is dotted with some top-notch spots to pitch a tent and gather in front of a fire.
Here are some of the best spots to escape to – tent and all!
Picture it: 500 metres of lakefront and 65 acres of bushland. That is what you get at this eco-camping spot that's located 25 minutes north of Noosa at the stunningly beautiful Elanda Point.
Habitat Noosa aerial
There is a guest laundry, camp kitchen, toilets, showers and a bistro and even an on-site bar serving up Habit Noosa’s own in-house craft beer.
Take a stroll to the Cooloola Recreation Area, explore Noosa River via canoe, boat or SUP, or soak up the surrounds on a wilderness cruise with an Everglades Ecosafari.
As well as regular camping, Habitat Noosa offers Paperbark Tents with an ensuite bathroom, private deck and continental breakfast—need we say more?

Sometimes we all need a little temptation, by means of luxury, to enjoy the great outdoors, and when there's a complimentary shuttle to main-hub Noosa in the works, you won’t regret a stay here.
Boreen Point Campground
Right on the edge of Lake Cootharaba, with water views and shady trees, you can’t go wrong with the Boreen Point Campground. It has loads of great facilities including hot showers, flushing toilets and drinking water, gas barbecues and wood burning fireplace barbecues (BYO firewood). There’s also a great little cafe a short walk away to get your morning coffee fix so you aren’t forgoing all your creature comforts.

Bluff Point Creek Kenilworth
Here in Kenilworth, wake up each morning to the breathtaking view of mountain ranges and a clear creek featuring abundant swimming holes and fish. There are six camping areas to choose from, each located on a bend of a beautiful clear creek with abundant swimming holes and fish.
Cotton Tree Holiday Park
You can’t beat a camp spot right on the banks of the Maroochy River and that is what Cotton Tree Holiday Park delivers.
Once you’ve pitched your tent, it’s very easy to sit down, relax and enjoy the tranquillity of the location or just watch the kids run around and make friends with other families.
Noosa North Shore
If waking up on the beach is your style, you couldn’t ask for a more beautiful spot than the Noosa North Shore Campsite.
You get to wake up to the sound of crashing waves and can get away with a morning swim in place of your usual morning shower. Pure and utter bliss!
You don't need a 4WD to get here but you’ll need to catch the cash-only ferry across Noosa River.
Borumba Deer Park
Set in 15 acres of sensitively landscaped rural bush along the banks of beautiful Yabba Creek.
The 2WD accessible park offers powered and unpowered sites suitable for tents, trailers and caravans, as well as recently renovated on-site cabins
Like the idea of camping but hate the idea of going without life's luxuries? You’re in luck because there are plenty of glamping options right here on the Sunshine Coast.

Lock in a trip to Igenia Holidays Rivershore and you'll be livin' it up on the banks of the Maroochy River in a safari tent fit-out with a king-size bed, kitchenette, bathroom, and TV for all the relaxing you can handle.
The fun doesn’t stop at the tent! Take a dip in one of several pools, swing your way through the mini golf course or unleash your inner child on the giant 20m x 9m trampoline.

Starry Nights in West Woombye is the ultimate private escape. Perched in and amongst the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast you’ll have complete privacy in the midst of a tranquil forest.
