Badgers Wood Camp Ground
Our campground is situated on 1.5 hectares of parkland in the middle of Noosaville, 5 minutes’ walk to the beautiful Noosa River. You can access the Noosa River foreshore playgrounds, bike paths, shelter sheds and BBQ’s without crossing a road. The calm water and sandy beaches along the river are very suitable for young children to swim and frolic or learn to canoe. The river is suitable for all water activities with many types of craft available for hire. But if you are after surf Noosa’s world famous beach is only a ten minute bus ride with stops right in front of the grounds. From there you can take one of Australia’s most picturesque boardwalks to the Noosa National Park with trails suitable for anything from a causal stroll along the coastline to challenging orienteering courses. For the more adventurous 4WD enthusiasts the North Shore (40 mile beach) is 20 minutes away .
Badgers Wood has plenty of shady camp sites and a bunkhouse with large commercial kitchen and dining area. Central to all services the campground is within a five minute drive of laundromats, shopping centres, post office, hospital, medical centres, video hire, service station, McDonalds, Red Rooster, a myriad of fast food shops, cafes, restaurants and clubs. Local and intraregional bus routes run past the front gate and a short stroll to the Noosa River Ferry service.
