Camp Gregory
Veterans Retreat

A place for all current & exservice personal, veterans & first responders from fire rescue, police and ambulance  & their families to camp, relax or just get away from it all.

Approximately 15 minutes’ drive from Woodgate, lives a pristine place called Camp Gregory Veterans Retreat. A place for all serving, ex-service personal, veterans, first responders from Fire and Rescue, Ambulance, State Police services and their families to camp, relax and get away from it all. The facilities are free for all of the above and include camp sites for caravans, motorhomes, camper trailers and plain old tents. Amenities include flushing toilets, hot showers and fresh drinking water. Situated right on the Gregory River, you can enjoy some fishing and crabbing all year long. For those without camping gear we have dongas available with beds (all you need is linen). As Woodgate is a 15 minute drive this gives you the convenience of shops, fuel, ice and bottle shops, as well as one of the most beautiful beaches Queensland has to offer. We are constantly working on making Camp Gregory user friendly with our work committee and a string of volunteers. Local businesses and council have donated both time and materials which have helped in making Camp Gregory such a peaceful place to stop and bring your family. All our workers, including the caretaker and committee members, are volunteers, so please show them the respect and courtesy they deserve.


Camp Gregory is free to stay for all the above (Maximum 2 weeks)


Camp Gregory was opened as a veterans retreat in 2010. It started as a camp where Veterans from the 1968 National Service Intake (including friends and family) would gather through ‘word of mouth’.

Throughout the year Camp Gregory hosts a number of low key services on days of significance.

These days are a fantastic opportunity for veterans (both young & old) & their families to come together, relax and enjoy the peaceful serenity Camp Gregory has on offer.
