Driving Directions

Just 3km north of Yandina on the Old Bruce Highway, on the the western side of the road. Keep you eyes peeled as it is easy to miss the entrance. There is a bit of a slope on the entrance and you may have to manoeuvre around other campers as there isn't much room on the circular roadway inside the site. Turn hard left after entering.

On the Northern end of the Sunshine Coast, Browns Creek is always popular with backpackers in campervans. There is also room for caravans here but don't leave it too late in the day.

Nov 2019 closed gates and padlocked
Browns Creek gives you 2 nights free which enables you to look around a bit. There is lots to see with the Buderim Ginger Factory located at Yandina and the Eumundi Markets not far away.

The water tap here doesn't have a screw fitting so if you need to fill your tanks, get hold of one of those push-on fittings available at most hardware stores. You may need your chocks and levellers here too, as most spots slope.

Have been told, but have no verification that it's currently closed for reno and we re-open as day use only
Toilet excellent. Very shaded. A bit noisy from trains and some traffic. Currently has a high number of permies incl a couple of pretty dero caravans and some joined tents. Full before dusk even on this mid winter day.
