Canungra Queensland

Campsites at Canungra Showgrounds

I was travelling from the gold Coast inland and saw Canungra on the map. I called the Showgrounds and booked in there for an overnight stay. I liked it so much I stayed a few days camping beside a tree just below the facilities which were an easy walk in the dark. There are powered sites above around the arena for $25 and unpowered sites along the river for $10. Great prices and great sites.

The river bed was edged in beautiful old, old trees, with huge trunks and leafy shaded areas where tents were erected as the busy weekend came up. Most camped right next to the water, where there were ducks and geese, and also a resident platypus that I never managed to see. Campers fished in the waters and also caught yabbies.

Camping sites are full of large trees offering shade on your tents during the day. The place is both a visual and an audible treat with songs of birds and sounds of water from the nearby creek. The sites are also very close to a swimming hole, so make sure you pack your swimmers if you’re coming up on a hot day.

The Canungra Showgrounds house entertainment for adults and children alike with plenty of space to ride bikes and swing from ropes. You can also build a camp fire and roast some treats, perfect for eerie nights with spooky stories around the fire.

Hot showers, toilets, and a common eating area are on offer at the Canungra Showgrounds. For all enquiries regarding hiring Canungra Showgrounds and Canungra Showgrounds camping sites phone 07 5543 5904.

The shopping centre is a few kms down the road, and at weekends it is a hive of activity as many people head to Canungra for the weekend. There is a bakery, grocery and coffee shops and restaurants. The Military Jungle training camp is in this area too as I drove past when going to the Showgrounds. We are right in the mountains and the scenery is beautiful and the roads excellent.
