Spanning almost 28,000 square kilometres, the diverse landscapes of the Banana Shire, home of the Sandstone Wonders, are jaw dropping. There’s a range of camping areas available for those that are travelling in caravans and who are keen to get closer to nature.
Junction Park, Theodore: peaceful, pet-friendly paradise
