Things to know
The only way to reach Lizard South Remote Bush Camp is by a walk-in approach, making it a perfect destination for those who relish the idea of a challenging hike into the wilderness. The campsite is designed for tent camping, providing an authentic and immersive experience. However, be prepared for a long walk to your chosen camping spot, so packing light is recommended. To visit Lizard South Remote Bush Camp, it's crucial to be an experienced off-track walker with specialized equipment and strong navigational skills. A high level of physical fitness is also necessary to tackle the challenging terrain. Before embarking on your adventure, familiarize yourself with the area, plan your route carefully, and carry essential navigation and communication gear. Always leave your plan with a responsible person and consider joining a local walking club or seeking advice from Bushwalking Queensland for additional information. As the campsite is self-sufficient and lacks facilities, be sure to bring ample drinking water, extra food, a first-aid kit, a topographic map, compass, torch, warm clothing, wet weather gear, rubbish bags, insect repellent, and a fuel or gas stove. Remember to bury human waste away from the campsite to protect water quality. Mobile phone coverage in the area is poor, so it's essential to be self-reliant and prepared for limited connectivity.
Scenic Views: The campsite offers stunning panoramic views to the north, just a short walk away. From here, you can take in breathtaking cliff-edge vistas that extend from the mountains to the coast, offering an ideal spot for nature photographers and enthusiasts.
Menura Creek: For those seeking adventure, consider walking west to the headwaters of Menura Creek, named after Albert's lyrebird. Keep in mind that the creek may not always have water, so it's not a reliable water source.
