Milligan Island Camping Node

Just off Indian Ocean Drive located between the towns of Green Head and Leeman, is the Milligan Island Camping Node. Opened in December 2016, the camping node hosts 36 camp sites, 2 long drop toilet facilities, 3 shade shelters,  2 gas bbqs, and is ideal for self sufficient caravans/RV’s and campers looking for a quiet spot out of town, close to the beach. As this is an eco tourist site, there is no running water or power.

 

The camp site is situated within a short walking distance to the beach. The bay (Billygoat Bay) curves for about a kilometre, with views to the off shore islands.
