Bush camping areas
Both drive-up and walk-in bush camping for self-sufficient campers is permitted at various locations throughout Barakula. There are no facilities, so bring your own drinking water, a gas/fuel cooker, rubbish bags for taking waste with you, and all other necessaries. Camping is prohibited in signposted logging areas. Note: cattle herds are common throughout Barakula; for your safety, do not camp near feeding lots, cattle trails or livestock watering dams.

This campsite is located in Barakula State Forest
Expect to see logging trucks on the access roads at Barakula, as this forest is a major supplier of cypress pine. Despite the presence of industry, the forest (about 45 km north of Chinchilla) is known for providing good fishing opportunities after rains, and there’s plenty on display for wildlife watchers. Go west on the Warrego Hwy from Chinchilla, then take Auburn Rd north to Barakula. Advance bookings are required for all camping.
