The Darlington camping area is situated behind the dunes on Darlington Bay Beach (500 metres south from the jetty).

About

A large campground suitable for tent camping is available behind the dunes at Darlington with easy access to the beach. This is the perfect base for your Maria Island adventure.

Remember, you'll need to transport all your camping gear across on the ferry and from the jetty to the campground, so pack smart! Trolleys are available at the jetty to make this process easier.

The covered barbecue area has fireplaces to help you to keep warm in cold weather (firewood provided) and free gas barbecues. The campground is close to an amenities block with toilet facilities.

All water on Maria Island is not potable and treatment is required, use purification tablets or boil for at least one minute before use.
