Petal Point camping area
If you like to be alone on a windswept beach, with only seabirds for company, then this remote coastal camping area is for you. Head to the far north-east corner of Tasmania, where there are campsites tucked into the scrub at the eastern end of Boobyalla Beach. Take the Cape Portland Rd (C844), 21 km north of Gladstone, and then turn left to Petal Point. You will need to be completely self-sufficient for water and a gas/fuel stove is recommended. Camp only in existing sites. There are no dump sites in the reserve.

This campsite is located in Boobyalla Conservation Area
Abutting Musselroe Bay Conservation Area, this newly designated 10 km strip of coastal reserve spans the windswept dunes of Ringarooma Bay, from the tiny shack settlement of Tomahawk to the end of the Boobyalla Beach at Petal Point. It is a beautiful, isolated corner of Tasmania with a pristine white-sand surf beach, striking coastal vegetation and few visitors.
