Things to know
The journey to Knoll E12 is an adventure in itself, accessible only by foot. Aspiring campers must be experienced off-track walkers with specialized equipment and advanced navigational skills to navigate the challenging terrain. The campsite offers tent camping, but be prepared for a long walk to reach your tent setup area. The facilities at Knoll E12 are minimal, in line with its remote and pristine setting. The campsite, surrounded by the vibrant hues of the rainforest, is an open area without separately-defined sites. As a rarely used site, it might lack an obvious camp layout, so visitors are encouraged to choose spots that minimize their environmental impact. Campers should bring drinking water, extra food supplies, a well-stocked first-aid kit, a topographic map, a compass, a reliable torch, warm clothing, wet weather gear, rubbish bags, insect repellent, and a fuel or gas stove for cooking. Mobile phone coverage is poor.
Sylvesters Lookout, located nearby, offers stunning panoramic views of the coastal plains below, including the southern expanse of Lake Moogerah and the rugged Border Ranges to the south. The lookout is an excellent destination to appreciate the surrounding landscape from a higher vantage point.
