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.

16.10.10 Koreelah National Park

We loved this area so much, we decided to visit it again the following fortnight. We actually had to cut our way along White Swamp Road from Boonah and cut our way over the creek crossing due to heavy rains prior to our arrival.

The rains meant the creek was up and it roared over the rapids and falls through the night. We did choose another campsite closer to the rapids and this may also have had something to do with it.
The frogs were a little quieter, probably being washed further downstream. The bird life was once again spectacular, with many species being seen from the comfort of our campsite. Here's my first Wedge Tailed Eagle that's actually wild:
This time we also had a Monitor Lizzard venture into our camp and he hung around the campsites for the entire morning. During our second visit, we had night time company at a campsite up the far end and one day bird watching couple as day visitor's.

We also purchased Annex Pack 1 for our Swag, which came in really, really handy as it was the windiest Saturday for some time. One teething issue though as one seam has been sewn incorrectly for about 5 cm on the wrong side, but no biggie for us, but it will have to go back to the shop alas.
And we got some comfy chairs as well. Those other ones were cutting into the back of our legs and it was annoying. I think we are getting the hang of camping with our Bed On Wheels!

Trip Kilometres: 420
