Mueller Camp


Mueller Camp

Mueller Inlet Camp is a small campground located on the shores of the Mueller river, sheltered by a coastal dune system. Launch a kayak or canoe and take advantage of the great fishing in the estuary or go for a swim. The campground contains 8 unpowered sites, 3 of which are walk in only. There are non-flushing toilets, but no fireplaces due to the high fire risk in this densely vegetated setting. However, camping with fireplaces can be found at Peachtree Creek, Wingan Inlet and Shipwreck Creek Campgrounds. Advanced booking periods apply over the summer period and Easter. For all other times, availability is released in August and December each year.

Visitor Tips
As space is limited in this campsite for turning caravans, they are not recommended for use here. Day Visitors are requested to park at the day carpark provided at Bald Hills and to walk the very scenic 1.2km to the campground. If you have equipment too heavy to carry, please drop off at the river access point and return your car to the day visitor carpark.

Campsites 4 to 8 are subject to regular flooding as the inlet naturally rises and falls, beware that bookings may be cancelled at the last minute due to this occurrence and be extremely careful when paddling as the river is open to the ocean and is often subject to strong rips, currents and tides.

The fires of December 2019 destroyed the bridge to access Thurra Campground and therefore the Thurra Camp is closed to visitors. Point Hicks Lighthouse is also closed to visitors. Works are ongoing to open these sites and more information can be obtained ar by searching for Fire Affected Parks.
