Sunshine Coast Coochin Creek

Sunshine Coast hotels

Coochin Creek State Forest park is situated within the Beerburrum State Forest, and can be accessed from the Bruce Highway, off Roy's Road. This is about an hour's drive north of Brisbane and the park is between the Bruce Highway and the Pumicestone Passage. The camping ground is only five kilometres along Roy's Road from the Bruce Highway. Access is Ok by conventional vehicle, but the road is narrow and winding, and quite broken up in places so a 4 wheel drive vehicle would be more suitable.

Coochin Creek is set amongst exotic pine forests. Picnicking, swimming and fishing are popular pastimes in the peaceful surrounds. BBQ, picnic and camping facilities, as well as a boat ramp, are located in the park.

Grassy campsites are suitable for caravans and tents, toilets, drinking water and barbecues are provided. Take insect repellent. Horse riding, cycling, trail bike riding and four-wheel-driving are allowed by permit. Dogs on a leash are allowed in the lookout picnic areas and walking tracks, but not in the Coochin Creek picnic and camping area.
