Bloomsbury is between Airlie Beach and Mackay. This free camp is a huge gravel pit located at the BP petrol Station.
As you can see any size rig will fit here. Tents were also camped on the grass area at the back. Road noise may be an issue to some depending on traffic that night. But this is a free camp so no complaints here.
The BP has hot and cold food in the dinner area as well as all the usual’s. Toilets and showers are available when the station is open. A washer and dryer is here, although I’m not 100% that this can be used, so please ask! A children’s play area is also in this area. As with any business that has a free camp, it’s always nice to buy something if using the facilities.
They also have cloths, tools and more. The bottle shop is connected so they sell alcohol over the counter should you want any.
Bloomsbury BP is a great free camp if you want to un-hook and head to the surrounds.
