Rest, Relaxation & Renewal
Situated on 123 acres of picturesque bushland, SU QLD’s Camp Cooroibah on the Sunshine Coast is open exclusively to groups we partner with for the purposes of our Christian mission – small or large churches, Christian youth organisations, and schools with an SU QLD Chaplain. The campsite is not available to the general public. With a rich heritage hosting hundreds of Christian camps, the property marks a serene corner of coastal Queensland. SU QLD’s heart is to see the campsite used in furtherance of our mission and as a place of rest, relaxation, and renewal. If your goal is to disconnect with the world and spend quality time in a community, then this is the campsite for you!

“I think what people like the best about Cooroibah Campsite is that it feels like it’s a million miles from anywhere, and when it’s quiet, the serenity is second to none. All you hear is animals, trees, and the wind. It really feels like hallowed ground, and it just feels comfortable being here.”

CAMP COOROIBAH, HOME OF
We've been coming to SU Cooroibah for more than 10 years and it's fair to say it has had a huge impact on the way we plan and run our event, and how we've been able to grow over that time. There is plenty of space for all of our games, and we make good use of the dam, the pool, the oval, the bushland, and the new Lennox Hall is spacious and very usable. So many memories have been made in the Pole Barn, and it's difficult to estimate how many key life-changing moments have happened in that place for so many of our participants over the years. We love coming back here; it always feels like home.Sandy Bickerton - GENTS Camp Director
