Just to give you an idea of the facilities, here are 2 photos (just make the people inside dissapear!) taken at Cid Harbour. The anchorage is right in front.
The fixed table is surrounded by a flat area, then another flattened area for tents, a toilet block (composting one so watch the CF folks steal it and shove it in their heads!).
We saw no people camping while we were there, but lots of people from tour boats walk through the area to go on one of the walking trails. It nice, shady and has good beach.
Because the National Parks are a Nazi organization the Brown Shirts will not allow a wood BBQ. the one in the photo
is a gas bbq.
A tent doesnt take up much room on a boat and the rest of the kit is abord anyway (except for the gas BBQ) so why not take a land based holiday too!
PS theres no camping that I remember at Nara Inlet. Whitehaven is FULL of backpackers every night so you would need to check that one out before you set your heart on camping there.
Hamilton Island Marina IS NOT
an option for groceries unless you won last weeks Lotto. Get your provisioning
done at Arlie beach (supermarket at Canonvale).
Hamiliton island is not even fun for a pop into. The marina charges $12 per hour
to tie up. Fuel
is expensive too.
