We heard reports of close-quarter camping and high numbers of campers at other camp grounds over Easter.
Here some feedback from our Easter campers:
” A great quiet getaway that’s close to Cairns. The property is very well maintained and I particularly like that there’s only 6 camp sites that are well placed around the property to ensure privacy. ”
AND: “We loved the privacy how there wasn’t anyone else around but us. It was so peaceful.”
AND: “The camp ground was right beside a billabong with plenty of native birds. It was totally private with three different flat sites to choose from, to erect our camp. It felt like we were in a remote wilderness location, yet had the convenience of Mareeba close by. The big lake had amazing day use facilities. Emerald creek was crystal clean and flowing well.”

Emerald Escape Camping is owned and operated by Kanjini Co-Op, a sustainable rural cooperative working to create an intentional community as well as provide businesses and services to the wider community on this magnificent property. One of our first businesses is to share this magnificent property with the wider community by providing private camp sites, starting with just six sites spread over nearly 3000 acres.

“Adler Hill Holding”, our over 20 square kilometer big property, is located in Far North Queensland, a relaxed 1 hour drive west of Cairns, and just 15 minutes from the major Tableland township of Mareeba where you will find any amenities and services you might need.


Our focus has been to create a camping experience similar to staying on a friend’s land or going way out to experience the privacy of your own camp site without other campers right next to you. We have designed the sites to have plenty of space between them and to highlight some of the diverse and beautiful areas that can be found on this stunning property eg. on the creek, by the lake, and up in the hills…


We have created 6 camp sites spread over 2800 acres giving you plenty of space and privacy and an amazing landscape to explore. We offer both 2WD and 4WD sites, ranging in size from small family getaways to larger workshop and retreat spaces or that special birthday party. The property has lots to offer: a 20 acre lake, 3km frontage along the crystal clear and always cool emerald creek, several small dams, great mountain bike tracks, lots of hikes, big trees, cycads and grass-trees, stunning views from the ridges of the escarpments and much more…
