Camp 2


Camp 2 is 2WD accessible and can easily accommodate a hundred people and dozens of vehicles, camper trailers and/or RVs.
It can be hired as one site or shared with another party.

It features two very large flat areas for camping and activities among big shady trees. Camp 2A is ~1500sqm and Camp 2B is over 2000sqm. Camp 2A and Camp 2B  include a large covered wooden deck each (~70sqm).  These are about 80 meters apart. Being close to Emerald Creek (see map below) and only 5-10 min walk from the magnificent Emerald Falls, there is plenty to do.
This is our prime glamping site, it is ideally suited to large private parties, weddings or other private events. It is also a very enjoyable site for a small or large family or shared with some friends.
Definitely one of FNQ’s very best camping sites.

Size: Very large camp site situated right on the creek and a short ten minute walk from Emerald falls. It has about one acre (4000sqm) of flat ground under big shady trees, two covered wooden decks, two toilets and two grey-water pits.

Access: 2WD, large Camper Van, Camper Trailer. Public access road is not suited for caravans.
NOTE: One of our main internal roads is passing between Camp 2 and the creek (going across the top of the image above) and might be used occasionally by one of our farm or management vehicles. Other campers are permitted to walk or ride bicycles along that road.

Occupancy: This site can be booked for less people, but will be charged for a minimum of 5 adults for camp 2A and 7 adults for camp 2B if booked by two parties, or 11 adults for the whole camp 2 site if booked by one party for maximum privacy.
Suggested occupancy up to 150 people and 50 vehicles.

Privacy: well tucked away, ~130m from closest road, ~260m from the public Emerald Falls picnic area and ~800m from closest camp site (all as the crow flies).
One internal road is going between camp and creek, so the occasional farm vehicle may come past or occasionally other campers might walk or bicycle along it.
If only half the site is booked (Camp 2A or Camp 2B), you might have another party at the other A-frame deck, which is ~80 meters away

Activities: Bird watching, Creek-dipping, Swimming at bottom of Falls, Mountain-biking, Hiking, Bush Walking…..

Camp 2 is in our Premium Price Category and you can book the whole site or just one of the two covered wooden platforms.

NOTES: all prices are per person per night.
The base rate includes 5 adults or child equivalents for Camp 2A. 7 for Camp 2B or 11 for both (or 7, 7.5 or 16.5 adults for long weekends or 10, 14 or 22 adults for Easter)

Rebecca 4 See above comment box.
Camp two was great. Was very spacious! Privacy was good. We could hear the cars going to and from emerald creek falls but could not see any. The lights set up on the A-frame were great and extremely useful.

Yvonne 5 Our campsite(2) was large and flat, perfect for a few families with quick access to the river and a fantastic shed for our kitchen area. The pit latrine was clean and spider-free which was a huge bonus. We had nightly visits from a bandicoot and spotted quoll which was great too. Our children spent hours playing in the river. medium-tent Earlier check-in would be fantastic but otherwise everything else was perfect. 3_better-than-most

anonymous 5 10 out 10 for the campsite 2 as easy access for all types of vehicles and camping styles
setting was great close to running clean fresh water, felt secluded and quite other than our noise – no one else to compete with for space etc other than your own camping group – that was the best thing about camping at emerald escape and I assume it is the same at all other camp sites.
