Centrally located, family orientated camping spot
This lovely, centrally located, family orientated camp ground in the Sunshine Coasts Hinterland is perfect for people looking to relax with their kids.

The camping ground itself features numerous fixed fireplaces for campfires, numerous toilets and a lovely creek for swimming. There are also a couple of short leisurely walks. The Little Yabba Creek Circuit is 1.5 km and the Piccabeen Circuit is 3.5 km. Both suitable for younger kids.

The more adventurous or fit might decide to head up Mt Allan. This is an uphill 8 km return hike through mostly exposed terrain. While the route up and down the hill provides lovely views, the top is heavily wooded and so there is little to see from the summit now that the old fire tower has been closed.

Lying in the Imbil State Forest with its numerous 4WD tracks, it is a popular location for people who like to enjoy nature from air conditioned comfort. It is also near Conondale National Park with some interesting trails, waterfalls and other sites.

Many families choose to camp as a way to save money on holidays. Charlie Moreland Camping Ground is a great central location for the area, with the towns of Maleny, Kenilworth Mapleton and Edmundi a short drive away. A bit further afield you can find lake Baroon and the Kondalilla National Park. For a more challenging hiking environment head to the Mapleton National Park.

Overall a great day place to spend a weekend or your holidays out in nature. Remember that you need to book your campsite through the national parks website, and for holidays and long weekends, you should book well in advance.

Domestic animals are not allowed at the camp grounds, however horses are allowed in the multi-use areas in the adjoining Imbil State Forest.

Always check the links for hiking and camping areas for more details. The national parks site does a fantastic job of providing up to date information.
