Camps in Brisbane
Set in a naturally beautiful area just 32 km from Brisbane and offering a diverse range of activities and adventures, YMCA camping is known as Brisbane's most diverse camp experience. We offer activities for all size groups and we cater for all age groups. Choose from our wide range of activities and build your own camp program.
At the YMCA camp we have 3 interlinking camp sites - Camp Warawee, Camp North Pine and Camp Bundalong covering approx 12 hectares of bush land ranging from natural rainforest to eucalypti forest offering accommodation and catering for over 300 campers. A diverse range of native animals and bird species is always present and the area is an important habitat for the local koala population.
The camps are a short distance from each other and we have some scenic walking trails between camps to take in the naturally beautiful area and native animals. Camp accommodation and catering facilities are located in both Camp Warrawee and Camp North Pine. All YMCA camp activities can be accessed regardless of what camp your accommodation is in.
Visit YMCA camping for a world apart from city noise and the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
