Cooroy RV Stopover is in a lovely little town on the Sunshine Coast and only 8km from Eumundi. This Camp is a fantastic place to base yourself so you can visit both forests and coastal locations.
Cooroy RV Stopover
This is a basic camp. You will find a couple of large grassed areas ether side of the gravel drive way and one by the gate. As we drove in we were greeted by Dylan, the caretaker. As it had been a rainy week the ground was a little wet so he recommended we park near the gate (the gate is not near the road)
You have to be
fully self contained and self-sufficient. A dump point is here and so
are bins which is a bonus. Gates are locked at 7.30pm and re-open
again at 7am. Cooroy main street is a short walk away and well worth
Dylan took our details and our $10 per night. This is a 72hr RV stop
but we stayed for 48hrs as we had a farm sit to go to.
Dylan, he said that he and his partner Morgan have been volunteer
caretakers for a while and were leaving in July, a new caretaker was
needed. This is a month by month position so you never know when it
will come up again. If your interested, give the council a call and
check if its available.
Places To Visit
As well as Cooroy's cafes, shops and boutique's it has the butter factory. Now, I got exited thinking we could do a factory tour and get some products, no! It's an art gallery. A good one I might add.
Eumundi and it's markets are a short drive away. Markets are on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Smaller stalls at the back of the regular markets were open on the day we visited on a Tuesday and a worth a look. We will be going back to check out the full market on another occasion as we are here on the Sunny coast for a couple of months.
Noosa, Mooloolaba and Coolum are less than an hour away if beaches are your thing and want a sea change for the day.
The Gympie Muster is also less than an hour away if you need a camp away from the the hordes when its on.
Cooroy RV Stopover maybe basic but the price and location is right. In the day you may hear a little noise due to working going on in the building behind the camp. We didn’t hear much as we are used free camps in odd places.
