Beach Camping – Caring for Country

For your own safety and for the conservation of our pristine environment we ask that you follow the below guidelines when camping on our beaches

  • Camping at each campsite is in designated areas. Signs designate the entrance to each camping area.
  • Camping is not permitted within 50m of streams or waterways.
  • Use existing campsites. Choose a site where you will not need to dig a trench, flatten vegetation or break overhanging branches.
  • Use the toilet facilities, where provided, but if camping in areas without toilet facilities, you must bury toilet waste in a 200mm deep hole at least 50m away from a waterway, campsite or frontal dunes. Do not empty chemical toilet into  composting toilets, as this will kill the bacteria within the composting chambers, rendering them inoperative
  • Take your rubbish home with you or dispose of at the designated waste disposal sites.
  • After fishing, to avoid the attraction of flies and unpleasant smell, please deposit unwanted bait in the ocean (rather than in the waste bins) taking care to remove all plastic from the beaches. Fish frames should be buried, and this should be done in the inter-tidal zone only.
  • Use fuel stoves for cooking wherever possible, not wood fires.
  • Wood cooking fires are allowed on the condition that they are extinguished with water after use, however they are not permitted on the beach. Cooking fires must be attended at all times.
  • If a wood cooking fire is necessary, always keep it small and where possible light fires where it is already cleared of vegetation, and on the site of a previous fire.
  • Do not collect firewood from the beaches or dunes. Do not cut branches from trees for firewood. Firewood can be purchased from the mainland.
  • Always observe fire bans. Extinguish all fires once cooking is complete.
  • Bonfires are not permitted.
  • Fireworks are not permitted.
  • Chainsaws are not permitted.

The camping grounds are located within the Mulgumpin Recreation Area. Activities such as camping and driving on the beaches, are controlled by regulatory notices. Contravention of a requirement of a regulatory notice is an offence under the Recreation Areas Management Act 2006. Please familiarise yourself with the Recreation Area Management Act Regulation 2007.

An official receipt of payment is recognised as acceptance by all campers and their guests, of these regulations, and as an official permit to stay during its period of currency, unless it is made void sooner as a result of misconduct as described in the above Guidelines, or on regulatory signs.

Authorised Mulgumpin personnel regularly patrol the Camping Grounds and Beach

Camping Areas and are able to evict campers or their guests if the camper or their guests have failed to perform or observe any of the obligations listed in the Guidelines, or contravene any requirements listed on regulatory notices. Verbal notice by the Mulgumpin Camping authorised personnel is sufficient. In the case of an eviction, camping fees paid will not be refunded.

Unaccompanied Minors

  • All guests under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult such as a parent, step-parent, guardian or other adult who has parental rights and responsibilities for the under 18 year old guest.
    If a guest is found to be a person under the age of 18 who is not accompanied by a responsible adult, Mulgumpin Camping may immediately cancel the guest’s booking and the full booking amount will be forfeited to Mulgumpin Camping under this clause.


Vehicle Access Permit Terms & Conditions

  • Vehicle Access Permits (VAP) have Terms & Conditions attached to their use. Please refer to these Terms & Conditions should you have any queries. Please note that you may purchase a Vehicle Access Permit for Mulgumpin beaches for a 4WD vehicle only. Unregistered vehicles, motorbikes, quad bikes and other motorised vehicles are not permitted and will not be sold a Permit.
  • If you sell your vehicle for which a Vehicle Access Permit was originally issued, or your windscreen is damaged, then you may be eligible for a replacement permit sticker. Please note however that replacement Vehicle Access Permit stickers will not be reissued if they are lost. If you lose your permit sticker you will need to purchase a new one.
  • To obtain a replacement Vehicle Access Permit sticker, you must remove the original permit sticker prior to selling your vehicle, or when windscreen damage occurs. A replacement Vehicle Access Permit can only be reissued if the original permit is returned to us. Replacements cannot be made on production of your receipt alone.
  • Please email the Mulgumpin Booking Office to get a replacement permit. There is a $6.60 fee for replacement permits. Replacement permits cannot be issued on the island.
  • If the permit holder dies during the period of the permit and the family advises it does not intend using the balance of the permit period, the fee will be refunded on a pro rata basis. Alternatively, should the family wish to retain the permit for the balance of the permit period or seek another permit with a name change and/or different vehicle registration, another permit will be issued without charge. Once again the original sticker must be produced for us to issue a replacement sticker. Note: Documents such as a certificate or notice of death will be required and if necessary, the original permit should be returned to us.
