The Location

Cowley Beach Caravan Park is owned and operated by the Cassowary Coast Regional Council. Situated on the beach frontage at Cowley Beach, this unique and tranquil site comprises a total of 32 powered sites, 14 unpowered sites, newly refurbished amenity block, coin operated laundry and a free-standing, onsite two-bedroom residence with office and reception area. Potable water is supplied to the camp kitchen and vanity basins in the ablutions block. Bore water is supplied otherwise, throughout the park. There is no dump point at the park, the nearest dump points are Innisfail. Tully and Mission Beach. 

Cowley Beach is located along the Great Green Way, just 20 minutes south of Innisfail. This quiet beachfront hamlet is 8kms off the Bruce Highway and has a kiosk and caravan park, and a small army camp to the north.

Holidaymakers enjoy throwing a line in at Liverpool Creek for mangrove jack, barramundi, bream and flathead, or use the boat ramp to head out to the nearby Barnard Islands. (Please note the track to Liverpool Creek is closed to vehicles.)

The Barnard Island Group National Park is close by and comprises seven islands Bresnahan, Hutchinson, Jessie, Kent and Lindquist (North Barnard islands) and Sisters and Stephens (South Barnard islands). Snorkel straight from the small sandy beaches over beautiful coral to see colourful fish, turtles and maybe a dugong. 

Cowley Beach is just half an hour from the towns of Tully and Mission Beach, and is in a rain shadow area receiving much less rain than surrounding areas.

Nearby Kurrimine is a favourite fishing spot where anglers have a choice of beach, estuary or reef fishing. Abundant species of fish and the famous painted crayfish are just waiting a couple of hundred metres offshore. There’s an all tide boat ramp close by at Maria Creek. This community has the largest fishing club in Queensland and holds a fishing competition each September that attracts more than 700 participants







Travelled up the north QLD coast and wanted to stay at Cowley beach because of the CMCA recommendations. I rang a couple of times on the way up and got the answer machine. It was a Sunday but there was no message to say they were closed Sunday. On arrival in the rain between 4pm & 5pm the reception was pitch black with no signs indicating they were closed on Sunday. We then had to drive back to Kurrimine Beach about 1/2 hour back from where we came from. Kurrimine beach is lovely and after that first night we decided to come back for another two nights on our way home.



Great park, have had major renovations. New toilets/showers. Great Camp Kitchen. Potable water in camp kitchen. No Dump Point. Book on line and Manager will confirm you site. No cabins now.



Lovely park right on the beach. Book online if you don't get office. No Dump Point only down fall but rest makes up for it. Will return next year.



Great place on the beach river behind. Very peaceful well maintained grass and grounds. Will be back one day!
