Balgal Beach Queensland

Balgal Beach is a coastal suburb and a beach in the City of Townsville, Queensland, Australia. The town of Balgal is within the locality. In the 2016 census, Balgal Beach had a population of 966 people. Located a few kilometres north of the suburb of Rollingstone, Balgal Beach today is a popular destination for recreational activities such as boating, fishing and swimming. A boat ramp is located by the mouth of Rollingstone Creek, allowing for access to Palm Island and Orpheus Island National Park. Facilities at Balgal Beach include a patrolled stinger enclosure from November to May, the Mystic Sands Golf & Country Club, a general store/cafe, holiday units and designated camping areas

You have to go online to book your free camping spot. The Site is not working very well, and though it told me there were no spots, there were only 4 caravans parked there. So you need to just stay if you are there and speak with the ranger the following day. You can stay 48 hours. The kiosk closes at 5, and I had to beg for them to turn the jug on and let me buy a cup of coffee. The toilets are good, and there is a sink you can wash your hands at and the water is tank water and beautiful. It is a beautiful camping place with many facilities.. picnic areas, outdoor gym, cold shower, barbecue area and of course the sea opposite and the river on the left. Great for fishing and collecting coral…the shore was strewn with coral. The best part was the wonderful sunrises and again Balgal Beach presented me with an amazing sunrise, with an almost full moon there too.
