Things to know

Stern Remote Bush Camp is situated in Main Range National Park, approximately 120 kilometers southwest of Brisbane, Queensland. Access to this remote campsite is by foot, making it a walk-in camping destination. While there are no separately-defined camping sites, the campsite can accommodate a maximum of 6 people. Facilities at the campsite are minimal, and campers are expected to be self-sufficient. There is no nearby water source, so water collected from creeks should be treated before consumption. Open fires are prohibited, so campers must use fuel stoves for cooking. Generator use is not allowed. Campers are advised to bring essential supplies, including drinking water, extra food, a first-aid kit, topographic map, compass, flashlight, warm clothing, wet weather gear, rubbish bags, insect repellent, and a fuel or gas stove. Mobile phone coverage at Stern Remote Bush Camp is poor, so it's important to be self-reliant and prepared for any situation



The campsite is nestled in an open forest area with a heath understorey, surrounded by lush ferns. Stern Remote Bush Camp offers an opportunity to spot Cunningham's skinks basking on the rocks. Nearby, you can explore The Steamers, which are flat-topped pinnacles formed by erosion, resembling a series of steamship-like peaks—prow, funnel, mast, and stern. If you visit during spring, you'll be treated to the vibrant colors of the fragile mountain heath, attracting an array of birds and filling the air with sweet perfume.
