This campsite is located in Curtis Island National Park

This national park is at the north-eastern end of Curtis Island, off the Qld coast between Gladstone and Rockhampton. There is a historic lighthouse at Cape Capricorn, but no other notable facilities. Fishing, swimming, snorkelling and wildlife-watching are all popular activities here, although swimmers and snorkellers should wear protective clothing during stinger season (Oct–May). Travel to the island is by private boat from Gladstone, The Narrows, Port Alma or Rosslyn Bay. Advance bookings are required for camping.
