Clamp down on parking

Noosa National Park carpark last Sunday.

All day setting up camp in the Noosa National Park carpark may soon be under review with Noosa Council looking at including the carpark within its regulated parking zone.
Council says the Department of National Parks, Sport and Racing initiated discussions to allow Council to take over management of both Noosa National Park and Laguna Lookout carparks as well as other National Park carparks within the shire.
The changes are among a number of amendments council is proposing to its Local Laws.
Other amendments include changing the approval criteria for the operation of both an ‘accommodation park’ and ‘shared facility accommodation’ and a seven day limit on for sale/lease/sold signs following settlement.
Council plan to refer the proposed local law amendments to State entities then public consultation. Submissions will be reviewed by council staff and reported to council for consideration. The Local Law amendments are on the agenda for this month’s Services and Organisation Committee meeting.


  1. good , I dislike the fact that these campervan’s just roll up and stay free, they or some leave a mess , do damage , due to the amenities not being available they leave their waste behind tree’s . Every power board at Lions Park has been vandalized to gain access to power, it has been switched off so they just go to the BBQ’s . I have seen free campers in groups on Gympie . and in Chaplin park via broken lock .
    a designated area for cheap camping should be found

  2. The problem is, so many more campers are coming to Noosa, which is great, but Council, and private developers, are not providing more caravan parks for them to stay in. Noosa River Park is always full, mostly with Grey Nomads and people coming from Gympie and closer environs, who stay for months. These people do not contribute much to the economy, as they do not eat out, go on tours etc, yet clog up the tourist parks for the visiting campers. I feel sorry for these folks. They should be allowed to camp and enjoy the facilities and our beautiful coastline, as tourists do. They are also great ambassadors for our area. Shame on Noosa Council for not providing more camping areas and also for not limiting the time people from neighbouring shires can stay in the caravan park. Noosa is built on
    tourism, never forget that!
