Staying with us


Enjoy an active or relaxing stay at Jimna Base Camp! Whether you prefer unwinding in nature or exploring the extensive trails in Conondale National Park and Jimna State Forest, it’s all up to you.

King Parrot at Jimna Base Camp

If you sit back at camp relaxing, your eyes and ears may catch a sight of the huge variety of birds and native Australian animals that frequent the bush, bordering the camping area.

During the day, it’s the King Parrots, Currawongs, Crimson and Paleface Rosellas and Bellbirds that are a few you could encounter.

Maybe you’ll even spot the very elusive and well camouflaged koala sitting high up in the gumtrees!

Koalas at Jimna Base Camp

Then at dusk, it’s the time when the nocturnal varieties appear…the wallabies, bandicoots, owls and one that not too many people get to hear…the koalas! It’s at night when the male koalas are most active, high up in the trees, producing their very eerie grunting and growling calls, hoping to attract a female companion.

Or if you’d prefer to get out and about by vehicle, there are so many variations of tracks and trails that meander through the Conondale National Park and Jimna State Forest.

Kenilworth Dairy and cheese factory is not far from Jimna Base Camp

You may choose to take Sunday Creek Road, via Peters Creek and the famous Booloumba Creek falls, towards Kenilworth and the Mary Valley region. Visit the old gold mine on route and take in the magnificent subtropical rainforests, as the track winds its way along.

Have a swim at Booloumba Creek, Little Yabba Creek or the Mary River.

Whilst in Kenilworth, why not visit the Kenilworth Dairy and cheese factory, the Kenilworth Bakery, the Kenilworth Hotel or any of the eateries in town.
