Mt Barney Retreat Camping Sites

Mt Barney Retreat is true wilderness escape - just two hours from Brisbane. On your door step - Mt Barney Retreat with its mountains, forest and creeks lends itself to some amazing camping experiences.

We have 300ac (130ha) of mountains and forest available for camping, plus we offer an established camping ground with all the basic facilities you would expect in a wilderness retreat. A commitment to restrict the number of sites to a sustainable number means you, your family and friends can readily experience the quiet and peaceful surrounds of the forest and the mountains. We hope that by limiting the number of camping sites we are able to offer you a great incentive to camp here.

We have developed camping sites to showcase this amazing place - adjacent to World Heritage Mt Barney National Park. For those who want a complete wilderness escape we also offer an even more remote location - hidden in the forest and ridges of the property and accessible by more experienced four wheel drivers - as the tracks are rougher and steeper.

Please Note: Mt Barney Retreat is accessible by 4WD vehicle only – the road is rough but not beyond the capabilities of any careful driver.

General Camp Site

For those who want to stay close to our main facilities we offer about 5 acres in which to put up your tent or place your camper van.


Mowburra Base Camp Site

It is ideally suited for exploration onto the western peaks of Mt Barney National Park.


Rainforest Camp Site

Drive along the main ridge track and continue up to where it is too steep to continue. You are there! 


Southern Cross Camp Site

The Southern Cross camp extends along the ridge from the Harvey Hill camp site


Sunrise Camp Site

Set high on Harvey Hill this camp site will catch the first rays of the morning sun (or evening moon).


Sunset Camp Site

This is favourite place for all our Retreat visitors - especially as the evening starts to draw in.


Yamahra Creek Camp Site

If you are looking for a secluded camp site nestled in beside a creek then this is the place for you.
