This was a wonderful place to visit. We booked a few weeks ahead to ensure we could stay a few nights but that still didn't get us a waterside campsite has great views of the water anyway also only had non-generator available. Campsite ground is hard but there's rocks and fencing you can tie down to. Was very windy while there. Excellent long drop toilets no smell and very clean. The water at osprey bay is very clear. You'll see turtles. We swam with them many times. Snorkeling is beautiful not far out do great for kids. Large fish but not a lot of coral. We were amazed but a cuttlefish changing colors right before our eyes. Fantastic.

We only stayed 4 nights in Osprey bay and could have stayed much longer as there is so much to do. Firstly, there is plenty of space for each caravan, the toilet are super clean and rubbish bins provided. The snorkelling is first class, we swam with turtles, saw big school of fish, coloured, etc. Also went to yardie creek (saw an Eagle with a snapper and some rock wallabies), to Oyster stack and Turquoise bay which were also rewarding for snorkelling, We also kayak at Osprey bay and saw dolphins very close.
Happy hour at 5pm with fellow travellers to exchange experiences and advice.
really fantastic experience!!!!
Book in advance as it is popular !!!

The accomodation at the Cape Ranges National Park should be the benchmark for national parks. There were no lodges or cabins or fancy amenities just simple and spotless drop toilets.
If you choose to stay here you must be capable of living "off-grid" but the rewards are huge. Large, flat well designed sites that do not crowd into each other. Despite the campground being full for the long weekend, each van site was well separated from the next and designed so that you never feel claustrophobic and on top of your neighbors.

The beaches are beyond description with quality snorkelling just a few metres off shore and the sunsets were heavenly.

We could jump in the car and drive to nearby attractions with ease.

This is how caravanning in a national park should be.

Perfect place to relax & chill out. Individual campsites so you're not crammed in tight next to everyone. Right next to the beach so great for strolls.
The sunsets were amazing !!!!! We sat out at night admiring the stars.
There are toilets, but no showers, no power, no phone reception or Internet.
How's the serenity ???
Sooooo worth a visit

A good place to see the stars and just relax with the kids WITHOUT power and be one with nature. No electricty means no Ipads. Peaceful place and children friendly
