Queen Mary Falls Caravan Park, QLD.

Queen Mary Falls Caravan Park and Cafe
The Queen Mary Falls Caravan Park is conveniently located opposite the Queen Mary Falls section of Main Range National Park. There is an excellent Day Use Area in the national park but no camping is allowed.

There is a cafe at the front of the caravan park which also serves as the office for checking in. We received a friendly greeting and were made to feel welcome. There are powered and unpowered sections available as well as a few cabins. We chose to camp in the unpowered section and we had the area to ourselves.

Feeding native birds with seed purchased at the cafe is a popular activity. As a result, there are lots of birds in the campground. As soon as we pulled up to our site Australian King Parrots came to visit us. 

The King Parrots arrived before we had a chance to get out of the car.
As we have a low impact philosophy regarding nature we don't feed wildlife but it was pleasant to sit in the campground observing various birds grazing in the grass. Crimson Rosellas and Eastern Rosellas were a colourful sight.
Eastern Rosella, Galahs, Crimson Rosella and a Wonga Pigeon.
There is a camp kitchen with a large barbecue and a wood stove for keeping warm on cold nights. It was surprisingly cool at night when we were there in late October. The amenities block is old but importantly there was plenty of hot water for a shower. If you like bush style caravan parks then you will be happy here but if you like resort style caravan parks then this caravan park may not appeal to you. We were perfectly happy to have a place to camp next to a national park with flushing toilets and hot showers.

While we were there, we were lucky to witness the farmer next door muster a large herd of cattle. It was great to see the dogs and horses working together.
