Located on the picturesque northern coast of Tasmania, Petal Point Campground provides a great launching pad for those campers who like boating. Offering beach access for boats, this campsite is quite raw but provides enough for a good night sleep between boating adventures.
The Petal Point campground is located approximately 21km north of Gladstone via the Cape Portland road (C844). The road into the campground is a pretty average dirt road all the way from Gladstone. Take a right at Lemons beach to locate the campsite.
The camping ground offers around eleven individual campsites. The best spot is camp spot number 9, out of the wind.
Boating is obviously the big draw card for this campsite. Swimming and fishing are also popular past times at Petal Point, if you dare brave the cold temperatures of Bass Strait.
