Camping at Broadwater

Fun at Broadwater a family tradition for us!


Broadwater is a National Park 2 hours’ drive north of Townsville.  The turn off is north of Ingham on highway one and is well signed.  It has a lovely shady campground for families to enjoy. There is space for a game of cricket or a shady tree for reading a book. The creek is cool, clean and always flowing. A great idea is to take blow up boats, boogie boards or something you can use the float down the rapids. Just like all national Parks,  it is essential to book online before you go.
