5 reasons to add Byfield to your Queensland bucket list

During my 2.5 months in Australia I was lucky enough to visit loads of incredible spots but the hidden gem that absolutely takes the cake is Byfield on the Capricorn Coast.


Whether you’re rolling in a luxury motorhome, a kitted out 4WD with a rooftop tent or you’re going back to basics with a swag, Byfield is the dream destination for campers.


THE off-roading

Byfield National Park is well-worth a visit for any off-road enthusiast, with wild and rugged coastline, sand dunes and forest ready for you to explore.



Byfield’s flora and fauna are thriving, with plenty of birds, bats, sealife and other creatures to spot during your trip.


THE peace & quiet

One of the best parts about my Byfield experience was that at many of the stops on my trip, I was the only one or one of the only ones there.


Where is Byfield? Byfield is a small village just 30 minutes from Yeppoon, an hour from Rockhampton and about half way between Bundaberg and Airlie Beach.

There are 10 different places to set up camp in Byfield National Park and Byfield State Forest, ranging from easy-access spots with decent facilities right through to total off-grid campsites.
