About Camping Hire Equipment For Cairns

In North Queensland there are many beautiful islands and national parks where you can camp. 

To help with your preperation we have put together a list of things to remember. 

When spending a couple of nights on a boat or staying in a private house on an island some parts of this list may also come in handy. 

If camping on a tropical island, on top of a mountain, waterfall or in the ruged Aussie Bush is your dream then this is the place to live it.  We have camping stores in Cairns that sell and hire all camping equipment essentials.  Preperation is key and it is important to make all of these arrangements prior to your arrival including contacting National Parks and Wildlife and making sure it is possible to get a permit at that time. 

We also have car hire and 4WD companies as well as campervan companies and some beautiful camping grounds spotted around all of North Queensland. 

In North Queensland for an overnight camping trip to a National Park you will need at the very least:

*Bug proof Tent with all the bits that go with it 
*Sleeping Bag with inners
*Air matress/Sleeping mat
