The Petal Point Campground is located on the far North-East of tip Tasmania near Cape Portland and the small settlement of Rushy Lagoon in the Boobyalla Conservation Area, being a remote and windswept coastal area of Tasmania that is subject on a regular basis to wild weather, and as evidenced by the amazing Cape Portal Windfarm that is highly visible as you drive from Gladstone to Petal Point. This beautiful part of Tasmania takes a little effort to reach but is worth the effort if you enjoy peace, solitude and don’t mind some wild weather – make sure your tent is well secured! There are no charges, no bookings and limited facilities with a single pit toilet being the only facility. Petal Point is best suited to fully self-contained vehicles including motorhomes and caravans. All camping at Petal Point is on a first-come, first served basis and call camping must be in the clearly designated camping areas. To access, drive on the Cape Portland Rd (C844), some 20 km north of the small town of Gladstone. Turn left to the signposted Petal Point campground. To camp in this area, you will need to be completely self-sufficient for food and water; a gas/fuel stove is recommended. There are no dump sites in the reserve and no rubbish collection. Take the opportunity to walk along the windswept coastline, but be careful near water. Fishing (rock, beach and boat) is popular in this area. Dogs are OK, but must be kept on a lead at all times and under control.
