Balgal Beach is a picturesque spot 6km east of Rollingstone. Limited shade in this small beachside camping area. Good beach and river fishing and the convenience of a boat ramp.
This is one pretty spot... a must see. Free camp for 48 hours, showers, toilets. and a cafe/general store

Plenty of water taps available in park area.

Friendly service at the Cafe/Restaurant, that sells beautifully cooked Barra & chips as well as an ICY COLD BEER for that hot day. Get there early as it is not a big camp area.

Policed regularly by Townsville Regional Council.
