Free Camping At Matilda

When we were coming back from New South Wales to Queensland – can’t remember when exactly! – we couldn’t keep driving as we were so exhausted. When we pulled into the Matilda Petrol Station we seen there was a Free Camping section so we were relieved.

Its a Free Camping Spot at Matilda – unfortunately there is no toilet facility near the free camping spot, but there is some where the petrol station is! Just a bit of a walk.

We loved our one night Free Camping at Matilda – recently we have driven down that way and noticed the area is under water with all of the floods/rain they have had in the Gympie area and so this Free Camping spot was not able to be used. But I am hoping by now its all dried out.

We drive from Matilda Free Camping Spot to a magical peaceful camping area that I am so keen to go back to – wait to you see where we stayed!
