Caravan, Camping and Holiday Parks with Kids - - Queensland -­tion­al­

The Coast track, also known as the Coastal Walk, sim­ply must be walked once in a life­time. Less than an hour from the city, the clas­sic bush­walk is one of the most con­ve­nient, with pub­lic trans­port op­tions avail­able at both ends. The 26-kilo­me­tre track runs from Bun­deena to Ot­ford, of­fer­ing ex­tra­or­di­nary ocean views and the beauty of Royal Na­tional Park’s coast­line as you go. There is the op­tion to tackle it in small sec­tions, but if the kids are bush­walk­ing fa­nat­ics then do the full trail with an overnight stop at North Era camp­ground. The camp­site is roughly 18 kilo­me­tres from Bun­deena and eight kilo­me­tres from Ot­ford. Bun­deena is the rec­om­mended start­ing point, which al­lows first-timers to get the longer day out of the way first. Ex­pe­ri­ence all the won­ders the coast track has to of­fer by plan­ning the walk dur­ing whale­watch­ing sea­son to spot mi­grat­ing hump­back whales. A camp­ing per­mit is re­quired, booked in ad­vance through NPWS. Dif­fi­culty: Mod­er­ate
