About Borumba Deer Park
Borumba Deer Park is a family-owned-and-operated campground with additional caravan and cabin accommodation, located about 10 minutes west of Imbil and just a five-minute drive from Lake Borumba, the jewel of the Mary Valley inland from the Sunshine Coast.
The park is set in the tranquility of a deer farm, where hand-feeding experiences with deer and various other farm animals is a treat for the kids, along the banks of Yabba Creek.
The Borumba Deer Park recently changed ownership and the entire park underwent extensive renovations over a 12-week period mid-2020. If you haven’t stayed at the park for a while or have never been, be sure to come and check it out.
SITES AND ACCOMMODATION
Borumba Deer Park offers a large variety of different camping experiences in the beautiful Mary Valley including:
- Creekside camping along the banks of Yabba Creek
- Elevated camping at sites overlooking Yabba Creek
- Camping next to a deer paddock, where you can enjoy the deer grazing
In addition to non-powered camping sites and powered caravan sites (grass or slab), accommodation options available also include onsite cabins.
There are two amenity blocks at either end of the park, a large indoor camp kitchen, laundromat and various outdoor barbecue camp kitchens throughout the park.
There’s also an undercover entertainment and eating area in the stockyard, where discos and children’s movie nights are held.
The new nature-inspired playground, built as part of the park’s 2020 renovations, will keep the kids busy for hours along with the nine-hole mini golf course.
Borumba Deer Park has all the facilities you need for a relaxed and carefree camping holiday. This includes a well-stocked kiosk, laundromat, amenity blocks, camp kitchen and barbecue areas, campfires and children’s playgrounds.
The park kiosk is open daily between 8am and 5pm (6pm on Fridays and Saturdays).
It sells bread, milk and other grocery items as well as frozen meals, snacks, drinks, ice and wood. Gas refills, along with various basic camping items, are also available.
You can even enjoy a fresh hot coffee or hot chocolate from the kiosk on the new outside deck.

Both Sherwood Forest and The Stockyard amenity blocks are disability-friendly and family-friendly, with flushing toilets and hot showers.
