Punsand Bay Cape York Camping

Cape York Peninsula is a true wilderness area. Here, in the most northern reaches of Australia you’ll find a tapestry of long red roads, golden beaches, rainforest, waterfalls, tropical islands, rocky headlands and endless blue seas. This is the place where adventures are had and memories are made.

At Punsand Bay Cape York Camping we welcome guests from around the country and the world. Fishermen, beachcombers, birdwatchers, history buffs and those seeking to tick off some bucket list items, all find their way north to stay with us. Here you can watch the sun rise out of the Coral Sea in the Pacific Ocean and set over the Arafura Sea in the Indian Ocean. You can relax, refresh and unwind, while enjoying our country hospitality.

Family Owned & Operated Business

We’re owned and operated by two generations of the Colquhoun family. We love it up here and are passionate about the beauty, diversity of experiences, attractions, tours and destinations you can enjoy.

Punsand Bay is a bush campground located in a remote area which means we are off-grid, with lots of ‘behind the scenes’ work coming together to provide the creature comforts for our guests and visitors. Our team is busy in the background collecting our own water, sorting recycling and rubbish but most importantly providing power throughout our facilities from our generator system.

Since 2013 Punsand Bay has become so much more than just a campground and we are committed to providing our guests with a unique and once in a lifetime experience. We look forward to welcoming you to Punsand Bay on the Cape York Peninsula.
