Camping over the Easter long weekend

Burdekin Falls Dam campsite

Holiday makers are reminded to follow the advice of Queensland Health regarding practicing social distancing and carrying a face mask with you at all times. Sunwater also encourages people to bring their own supplies and observe good hygiene practices when visiting our assets.  

While there are no changes to camping rules or restrictions for Sunwater camping grounds at Burdekin Falls, Wuruma and Eungella dams, Sunwater reminds visitors to note the following when visiting these sites:  

  • Help us keep all recreational areas clean and tidy by using the rubbish bins provided. If rubbish bins are full or unavailable, please take your rubbish with you. 
  • Dogs are permitted but must be kept on a leash when being walked and restrained when at campsites. 
  • No motorbikes or four-wheelers are permitted in the camping ground.  
  • Regular cleaning will be conducted over the long weekend and security officers will be on site for visitor safety.
