Herbert River bush camping at Goshen Station

Camping in Australia – Goshen Station

Last week was Ryan’s 50th birthday and there is nothing we like more than bush camping in Australia, and this trip we visited Goshen Station.

Goshen Station is a working cattle station not far from Blencoe Falls in the wet tropics of North Queensland.

So we headed bush for some quiet time to celebrate away from internet and technology.

You turn off the Bruce Highway at Kennedy (near Cardwell half way between Cairns and Townsville) and head up the range on a picturesque drive that takes a leisurely 2.5 hours to Blencoe Falls and another 20 or so minutes up the road to Goshen Station.

We already did a blog post on Blencoe Falls and the Kirrama Range Road and it is well worth the visit. Absolutely spectacular!

Bush Camping at Goshen Station

You will need to book to camp at Goshen Station. At the time of writing, the station can be contacted on: (07) 4097 1428.

The cost was a $50 access fee and $50 per night. Please note we are not affiliated with the station. These were the costs during our visit and may be varied by the station. So – check the prices when you call.

Once booked, just pop into the station homestead upon arrival and you’ll be issued with a key.

Which for us is GREAT because it means access is restricted to known guests.

Our camp site was well away from the next by order of a kilometre or two, and was beautifully private. Our own piece of paradise. Dogs are allowed as long as they don’t chase cattle.

Just check out the video below;



Another beautiful location nearby is Hinchinbrook Island.

The area was devastated by Cyclone Yasi in 2011 but has bounced back well and includes the world famous Thorsborne Walking Trail.

Ryan Moody

Ryan Moody started his fishing career on the reef boats before catching bucket list marlin for the likes of champion heavy tackle angler Johnno Johnson, INXS and the King of Sweden. Branching out in the late 80's to guided barramundi fishing, Ryan has made a name for himself as a Big Barramundi specialist and to date has put clients onto over 2000 metre plus barra. That is over 2 kilometres of metre plus barra! With attitudes changing from 'keep all you can' towards catch and release, Ryan has decided to share his extensive knowledge and hopefully inspire people of all ages to get out from behind the computer screen/TV and into the fishing outdoors lifestyle he has spent his life perfecting.
