Fire ban: Campfire restrictions are in place
Applies from 18/12/2021

​​​​​​​​​​​​Campfire restrictions are in place for this site.  This means you will not be able to use campfires, pot fires and other solid fuel stoves. Gas stoves and gas barbecues are still permitted.

The dry summer conditions have increased the risk of unattended or poorly constructed campfires escaping and becoming bushfires. We have a duty of care to our community and want to ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable camping experience.

See the News Item on Campfire Restrictions 2021-2022​ containing a map here. ​

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 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.
