If you are heading over to the north-eastern coast of Queensland to the Mission Beach area and are looking for some where to stay, then you could consider Bingil Bay!
Surrounded by beautiful beaches fringed with coconut trees, the town consists of a scattering of holiday homes, one campground and one convenience store/café/bar/restaurant – which is in keeping with the laid-back charm of this area. Make sure that a walk around to Brookes Beach and up Bicton Hill are on your list!
We loved our visit to Bingil Bay and enjoyed the campground too. There’s nothing quite like enjoying a relaxing few drinks while munching on some lamb kebabs cooked on the communal BBQ after and watching the magnificent sunset colours filling the sky. In fact, the location was so beautiful we ended up spending more time here than planned, before heading south to Mission Beach.
If travelling through this pretty region in a campervan, you are in for a treat! Apart from Bingil Bay, there are a number of other council-run campgrounds that are privately leased and operated, all of which are very reasonably priced and have the most lovely settings; choose from Johnstone River frontage, beachfront or a lush rainforest backdrop…you’ll be spoilt for choice. You can check out some of the Cassowary Coast campgrounds here. If you are looking for motorhome hire, check out our vehicle options here
