Saunders Beach north of Townsville, Queensland
Saunders Beach camping ground
Great free camping ground on a great beach, the only thing is that it is a small one and apparently a very popular one, so people camp right on top of each other.
There are nice picnic tables on the beach front, and fishing in the river mouth not far from the camp ground.
If it gets too much, there is a larger camping ground at Bluewater Creek just a few minutes drive north.
We didn't stay there (it's not next to a beach but a creek), but it was a much larger camp ground and not nearly as packed as Saunders.
