Coochin Creek – Campground :

The Coochin Creek campground is situated along the picturesque upper reaches of the Coochin Creek estuary.

This campground is located between Brisbane and Caloundra near the Glass House Mountains on the Eastern side of the Bruce Highway around 10Km from the heart of Beerwah, the home town of Australia Zoo and The Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin.

From the Bruce Highway, this campground is accessed via the Bell’s Beach Road and is around 5 Km’s from the turnoff onto Roy’s Road.

This very flat, moderately sized campground can accommodate large Motorhomes and Caravans.

Please be aware that a booking system for individual sites operates here and you will need to know the site size you are booking as some sites are too small for very large Motor homes and Caravans.

Luckily phone and internet reception are reasonable here so if you know there are vacant sites it’s worth rocking up for a look and booking in situ so you know exactly what you are getting for your money.

Sites 1, 7, 6, 4 and 21 have ample space for more than one vehicle and are best suited for caravan and motorhome travellers. Campervan owners will find plenty of parking opportunities in the smaller spaces and the tent site parking areas.

You might need to get a little creative with your booking process to fit your needs though as you have a choice of tent or motorhome sites when booking with no real indication of actual site size.

The campground has three serviced pit toilets so you wont need to exhaust your own toiletry supplies here.

There are also ample formal metal shrouded wood fireplaces with most camp sites and Free Gas BBQ facilities are located near the River side of the grounds in the Day Use Area.

Water access is available from rain water tanks at the Toilet building and although ususally an adequate supply is available, filling containers (unless they’re are very small) is a slow and arduous process.

If possible you are far better off bringing your own water to this site. But there is usually ample available for showers and washing up if you are prepared to wait.

As much as I like this campground in Winter, Spring and Summer camping here can be unbearable for the Mosquitoes and Sand Flies. If you can tolerate dowsing yourself in insect repellant then you should be fine.

This drawback aside, the Coochin Ck Campground is a very pleasant area to spend a few days or more while you explore the amazing Glass House Mountains area.

Booking is done through the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Website and being in such close proximity to Australia Zoo, The Glass House Mountains, the Sunshine Coast and the Sunshine Coast Hinterland this campground represents excellent value accommodation at just over $6.00 per person per night.

I hope you enjoy your visit here.
