Billabong Camp

Camping at Billabong Camp is a memorable bush camping experience with the wild – without the hard work! Our quality tent accommodation form a permanent camping area by a billabong under the stars, the perfect base to come back to in between your many wildlife encounters throughout your visit.

Your spacious campsite includes tents which are 3m x 3m and made from heavy duty canvas with a solid floor. There are two tents set up per campsite to accommodate a family if needed. Each tent can sleep up to three people (with two stretchers and one sleeping mat). Depending on your requirements an additional sleeping mat can be arranged. Stretcher beds and sleeping mats are included in the cost of your stay.


Groups of four will be allocated a campsite. A campsite has two tents adjacent to each other. If you would prefer to stay together in one tent please let us know at the time of booking, max per tent is three people.

Groups of over four people will be allocated campsites/tents based on their sleeping requirements (this will be confirmed at the time of booking).

Parking is located directly outside the Billabong Camp compound in the Zoo’s Australian wildlife area, and your host will meet you at the entry gate to Billabong Camp.
