Doug Jennings Park is lthe park located at the very top of The Spit peninsula. There is a huge parking area right by the beach – plenty of space to search for your perfect spot to stay over night.
UPDATE: The Gold Coast City Council has now prohibited to overnight camping at the park and failure to do so may result in a on the spot fine of $120. It is even forbidden to park the car over night. Aanyways, it is still a great place to spend the day.
