Babinda Free Camp Spot

Flag of Australia  , Queensland,
Friday, July 22, 2011

We arrived at babinda camp spot and were amazed at how many were camping,about 30 vans,nice grass area,toilets and water.Nice clear water river,the girls had a swim and roll in the sand,what more could they ask for.We only stayed the one night as we were heading to Blazeaid,we can't believe all these free spots are so relaxing and picturesque.

Babinda is a small town just off the Bruce Highway centered around a sugar mill, like so many other similar small towns in this area. Located 57 kilometres south of Cairns, this little centre is actually quite an interesting place. It was reputedly named from the Aboriginal word "binda" meaning waterfall which could refer to either the plentiful waterfalls located in the nearby mountain range, or the fact that Babinda is one of the wettest places in Australia, receiving over 4200mm (yes, that's over 4 metres!) of rainfall per year.

Nestled among green farmland and mountains sporting tropical rainforest, Babinda is a picturesque place. National parks abound in the area and can be easily reached with just a quick drive in the car.
