Bush Camping ...

Bush Camping ...

I've created this blog mainly to let family and friends know where we have been "Bush Camping" of late as well as a permanent record for us. Sort of an online Scrapbook I guess.

We live in the South East Queensland region of Australia, so I am trying to camp in places that are, at most, 3 hours from Brisbane. Places you can visit on a quick weekend trip, over a long weekend period, or take a week or fortnight to explore. On occassion, we may venture much further afield (here's hoping) and show some other destinations we've managed to locate.

I've tried, where possible, to add links to important things. Such as websites for the places, towns, national parks, state forests, or places of interest. Please click those to take you away from my site, to theirs ... but don't forget to come back! I've added these so that you may get up to date information about these places.

If there is something that I haven't covered or that you can't locate information on ... Contact Me has been set up for you to send me an email. It's for comments or questions you may have about anything to do with the blog itself, my photo's, our camper trailer, or the destinations. Please don't hesitate to provide information on other places we can go, as we are always happy to visit another location.

You can also learn more about me and our camper trailer by visiting the Other Pages links.

Please Enjoy.

14.08.10 Andrew Drynan Park

So named for Mayor of Beaudesert from 1973 - 1977.

Right hand side from entry.

Spent an overnighter here at $5 per head.  Chilly August nights, dew in the morning.
 Trains go by on yonder hill which was nice as it broke up the moo-ing and chirping of the locals.  Flushing loo's but no showers.  Non-potable water on tap, so please take drinking water.  Gorgeous Running Creek would be very inviting come Summer time.  Most of the park is on the upper side of the road, with a few picnic tables, the odd BBQ and fire pits.  Lower side of the road is best suited for picnics and of course has the creek. 

Running Creek

 The Manager stops by each evening to collect fee's and supply timber for fires (excellent deal for $10).  There is a large, flat, grassed area on the RHS of the entry, with most other sites being slightly elevated and sloping.  There are a few lightly treed sites as well. 

We quite enjoyed our stay even though the westerly wind had a bite to it. Would recommend this to anyone wishing to do "The Lions Road", which is very scenic, but not recommended for caravans in places.

Trip Kilometres: 210
Trip Duration: 48 hours
