OLD Topsy Sites are currently closed and are NOT accessible for camping. We have created 4 NEW sites 


Topsy Creek Coastal Camps are the most popular camps on our Kowanyama lands, particularly for those who are visiting with families. 

The campsites themselves sit a stones throwback from Topsy Creek inlet and have access to barge landing so you can drop your boats.  This means, besides relaxing and enjoying the environment, campers can fish either from a boat or off the beach where the Topsy Creak meets the Gulf of Carpentaria.  Boats can be moored nearby. 

These are new sites 

Both crabbing and fishing is good at Topsy.  Common catches include grunter, silver and pikey bream, barramundi, king and blue salmon, trevally, queenfish, and black jewfish.


Camping Area Features


4-wheel drive is essential.


Number of sites

There are 4 sites back from the water inlet. There is a maximum allowance of 15 people per site.


Campsites are suitable for:  self-sufficient camping, fishing, bird watching.



Except for a drop toilet, there are no facilities, so campers must be self-sufficient and bring all their necessities. All rubbish (including food scraps) must be carried out. 


Generator use: Allowed.


Camp firesAllowed unless otherwise notified.



The carriage or possession of alcohol or drugs is not permitted anywhere on Kowanyama lands including campsites.


Mobile phone coverage: None.
