About

​COVID-19: Check the safety page for important COVID-19 Safety Information on personal measures to take, registration, bookings and walker numbers that affect this park location.​​ ​​

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 keep you warm in cold weather (firewood provided) and free gas barbecues. The campground is close to an amenities block with toilet facilities. Drinking water is available from signed tap.
