This is a small, attractive campground on edge of the Chain Lagoon, just off the Leichart Highway just north of Taroom, QLD.

Being a free campground, it is popular with the grey nomads, however most times you shouldn't have a problem finding a spot. There are no toilets, or water here so it is best suited to self sufficient campers. There are no marked spots.

The lagoon itself (palm tree creek) is quite attractive with water lilies and fringed by the rare palm trees. It is a magnet for birds, and you can often see Brolgas nearby (as well as the ubiquitous sulphur-crested cockatoos).
