Florence Falls

The campground is the perfect place to stay to get out and enjoy Florence Falls, Buley Rockhole, Wangi Falls and so much more.

Florence Falls is 135 steps down from the Lookout to a short track at the base of the falls. Here you can swim and enjoy the scenery of this amazing waterfall. Please don’t climb to the top and jump in, we witnessed people ejected and fined by National Parks staff for doing so. It’s also extremely dangerous for both those who jump and others below.

Things to See and Do in Litchfield National Park

There are a number of other falls and rock pools to explore in Litchfield National Park.

Buley Rockhole

Nearby Buley Rockhole rock pools are a lot of fun. Lay in the fast running stream and swim and jump in the deep holes of water. There are different sections you can enjoy, just be careful of the very slippery rocks whenever walking across the waterways.

Wangi Falls

Wangi Falls is a short drive further on. This is a big rock pool with lots of fun to be enjoyed. Climb into the rocks to find small pools of water with views back over the main area.

You can also have a picnic in the grounds overlooking the Falls or take the walking track

There is also the Wangi Falls Cafe to enjoy lunch and a drink after your swim.

Photography and Socials

Our camera equipment we use for all our photos and videos are:

Samsung Note 10 Plus Phone – https://ebay.to/2XOjXhi – Most of our photos are simply from our phones. The Samsung phone cameras are pretty insane. Our phones have 512gb storage in ours but the 256gb in this one is heaps. We have sourced this one which is approx $500 less than we paid for ours.

Canon 800d – https://ebay.to/2XQYnsk – the latest DSLR Canon 24mp camera, buy here to save.

Lenses

Canon 50mm lens – https://ebay.to/3nx5pyG  This is the lens I use the least, ideal for still, close up shots.
Canon 24-105mm lenshttps://ebay.to/3eCueUo This is my all round, everyday use, zoom lens. Amazing quality, great price.
Canon 70-300mm lens – https://ebay.to/33xYeht – I use this one a lot for long range shots.
Sigma 10-20mm lenshttps://ebay.to/2TWt0vA  – My wide angle lens for all my inside photos & video plus lots more, love this lens.

Our Go Pro 7 Hero Black – https://ebay.to/34thTP1  –  is an awesome piece of equipment. I use this for all underwater, action video and some general use. Buy here brand new and great value.

Mavic Pro Platinum Drone – https://ebay.to/2ARPxTo  This is an absolute ripper of a drone. The Fly More Combo will provide you with everything you will need. I use this for all my aerial footage and this price is well below other retail stores.

5 Essentials – 4WD Accessories

  1. 4WD Recovery Tracks will get you out of most situations, especially in sand. We bought a pair of these generic branded tracks that have worked well whilst other brands include the Australian made TRED or the Australian Designed and made MAXTRAX 4wd Recovery Tracks.
  2. For our 4WD we went with this EDECOA 1500 3000w Pure Sine Wave Inverter which has been excellent value and works great.
  3. I’m a massive fan of my Victron IP65 15a Battery Charger. I use it often to give batteries a boost and it really is an essential part of my tool kit.
  4. When camping my Kings 200w Solar Blanket gets a lot of use and works really well. Only downside is it doesn’t work with Lithium batteries.
  5. Brass Tyre Deflators are a fast and easy way to lower your tyre pressure to your desired level. Perfect for when you are hitting the beach.

Banka Banka Station

Banka Banka Station was our first stop for accommodation in the Northern Territory and was a very enjoyable stay.

#Please note. Important that I correct the pricing, in the video I refer it to be $6 however the right price was $25 for the night. I saw a sign for Motorhomes $6 but that was to wash the vehicle.

Camp Grounds

Workman’s Beach Campground, Agnes Water Qld

Workmans Beach Campground

Workman’s Beach Campground is in Agnes Water, Queensland and is one of Australia’s best Campgrounds.

The Rangers who look after it are fantastic and very friendly and it’s located just a short walk to the bay at beautiful Workman’s Beach.

There’s also a scenic walking track to more beaches and lookouts. Agnes Water features in our Best Beaches in Australia!

1770 Sunset
Amazing Agnes Water/1770 Sunset

Distance from Agnes Water to 1770

Agnes Water is just 5kms from spectacular 1770 where you will see the most incredible Sunsets on the East Coast of Australia.

Or a short drive further up the road to the south will take you to the amazing Paperbark Forest Boardwalk.

It’s absolutely Free and takes you through a beautiful scenic walk through an enchanting forest and across wetlands where you’ll need to use balance to walk across sections only accessible by stepping stones.

Workman's Beach Campground is only minutes from the Paperbark Forest Boardwalk
Paperbark Forest Boardwalk Agnes Water

We have written an easy guide on all the Best Things to See and Do in Agnes Water and 1770 to help you enjoy everything great about the region.

Workman’s Beach Campground Facilities

The Campground is a short track entry easily capable by 2wd.

Facilities include toilets and an outdoor cold shower. There are several Free gas BBQ’s and easy access throughout the campground to clean drinking water.

Aerial view of Workman's Beach Campground
Workman’s Beach Campground

The Workman’s Beach Campground is pet friendly and therefore dogs are allowed.

While we were staying there we had good Telstra coverage but no Vodafone.

5 Essentials – Camping Accessories

A good Tent or Swag is the first decision for going camping. We like the Coleman Tent from Tentworld or the Wanderer 7 Man Tent from BCF. For a Swag, we were so close to buying the Kings Double Swag from 4WD Supacentre.

We like our BCF Wanderers Camping Chair which gets a lot of use as we travel Australia.

No more lugging around a huge BBQ and gas bottle now that we have a brilliant Gasmate Dual Burner Butane Cooktop from Tentworld

A good Portable Fridge Freezer we have found to keep the beers cold and steaks frozen are the Kings 70 L Fridge Freezer in the budget range, the Waeco 75L Dual Zone Fridge Freezer or the ever popular and long lasting Engel 75L Fridge Freezer.

A good quality Hand Held UHF is ideal and I like this Uniden UH750 5 watt UHF for long range and quality. The 5 watt range will give you maximum distance, especially if you need help!

How do you book a site at Workman’s Beach Campground?

There are no bookings accepted. We contacted the Rangers via their Facebook page the day before we arrived and they were fantastic in responding and giving us confirmation of availability.

There are 38 campsites and it does get very busy. The Rangers collect the fees each day.

A Dump point is available at the 1770 SES Grounds only a 5 minutes drive away.

Workman's Beach Campground

Cost to stay is $9.20 per person for $25 for a family.
#Update 16/1/2020 – Cost is now $9.60 per person or $27 for a family.
#Update  17/11/2020 – Workman’s Beach Campground has been closed and may not re-open. The Rangers are no longer employed. The area is now a day use area only.

Our stay was 24th May to 2nd June 2018

How to get to the Campground

As you come in to Agnes Water on Round Hill Road, continue past the 1770 turnoff on the left and continue on what is now Springs Road.

Follow the road past the Information Centre until you see the sign and entrance to Workmans Beach Campground on the left just 1km further up the road.

Which popular attractions are close to Workman’s Beach?

Remember to read this for things to see and do in Agnes Water/1770
