Ramblings of an Extreme Man

Cape Hillsborough

1 Comment


We stopped for a few days at Cape Hillsborough caravan park with our mates Wazz and Megs. This place gets a lot of backpackers through as it has kangaroos on the beach at sunrise. It actually felt like we were living in Germany. The funny thing is that the park feeds the kangaroos seeds every morning on the beach, hence creating there own tourist gimmick.


We put the boat in here twice, once to fish and again to get the crab pots. We struck out both times unfortunately, but Wazz picked up a big Spanish mackerel at his secret spot.


How to get there:
Take the Bruce hwy past Mackay and follow the signs
Camping Cost:
$31 per night for two people unpowered
Boat Access:
You can launch off the beach, or continue down the dirt road beside the caravan park and launch at a rocky spot into the bay the other side of the headland, 4×4 only.
Other Opportunities:
Short scenic bushwalks with a lot of butterflies.
Kangaroos on the beach at dawn.
