Sunshine Coast has many beautiful places to camp. This time we spent three days at Caboolture River Camping near Rocksberg Heritage Park.
How to get to Caboolture River Camping
Caboolture River Camping is located 2 km northwest of Rocksberg on private property. Getting from Brisbane is easy as you don’t have to drive Bruce Highway, but instead, you follow some windy, hilly country roads to your destination.
Caboolture River Camping is available through HipCamp booking so the best way how to get their location is to visit their booking site. You will get $10 off your booking when you use the button below. It is called Willsons Rivercamp.
You can access this camping spot with any type of vehicle as it is closely located to the main road. In case of heavy rain or unpredictable weather, you can leave the site easily.
Should You Be Self-Sufficient
Yes, in terms of food and rubbish. However, there are two toilets for seven sites available. So, this is a bonus, as usually, HipCamp camping places don’t have any amenities.
What to Expect at Caboolture River Camping
James, the host, paid us a visit in the evening and he was very welcoming.
All seven camping sites are placed along the river. Most of them have a fire ring and a picnic table. They are pet friendly too.
The first toilet is available near sites 1, 2 and 3. The second toilet is located a bit further, for the remaining sites.
Site 1, 2, and 6 have a private entrance to the river.
Site 7 is special as it is the last in the row and has the best privacy. On top of it, there is a private waterhole located 50 meters further down the river. Simply amazing.
We were so lucky to book this site.
If you like privacy and private swimming aim for site 7.

Caboolture River Camping Final Word
This camping spot was very similar to the Mary River Camping near Kenilworth.
The only two differences were:
- Mary River Camping was far away from any road, whereas Caboolture River Camping was close to a very quiet bitumen road.
- At Caboolture River, it was easier to find a deeper swimming hole.
Both camping spots are awesome to swim, having a fire and relaxing in these country surroundings.
