Shady Camp, located along Point Stuart Road, is a popular spot for anglers with a boat ramp onto the lower reaches of the Mary River. The viewing platform across the Mary River floodplain allows travellers to observe the abundant wildlife of the area, including awesome saltwater crocodiles. Shady Camp is surrounded by fresh water billabongs, paperbark and monsoon forests, making it a picturesque area to explore.
Camping is permitted and camping fees apply. Please note that there may be possible road closures during the Tropical Summer, between November and April, due to high water levels.
