Lilley’s Beach is a popular weekend camping spot for locals and tourists alike!
Lilley’s Beach is a sensitive foreshore area, that is carefully maintained by Boyne Smelter Ltd and Gladstone Regional Council. Access to Lilley’s Beach is from the Boyne Island Sewerage Treatment Plan, via Handley Drive.
Lilley’s Beach extends along the coast 1.7 kilometres and may be accessed by Four Wheel Drive only (motorbikes prohibited). It is best to travel at low tide or within 2 hours either side of the low tide. Driving on dunal areas is strictly prohibited.
Permits are required prior to accessing Lilley’s Beach and must be carried in the motor vehicle at all times whilst in the area. Permits can be purchased online by selecting the Applications Icon.
Camping is only permitted within the fenced enclosed area at the northern end of Lilley’s Beach. Look for evidence of an existing campsite in preference to creating another. There are no facilities or rubbish bins so you must take your rubbish with you when you leave.
Please remember to take your own firewood. Fires are to be established well away from any bushland or grassed areas, preferably in the middle of the beach.
