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.

While staying at Flanagans Reserve, some other campers told us of this wonderful place, and we are glad they did.

As you can see the area is extremely scenic.  In the above photo you can see the toilet block at the end of the campsites on the right hand side.  If you look very closely you can also see our Swag!
Our first trip there saw us completely on our own with the occassional day visitor (3 in all the whole time).  We couldn't get over how quite the place was through the day.  The noisiest thing were birds (so many different birds ... it was a bird watchers paradise) and the occassional Moo of a very fat cow.  At night, the frogs were in fine form. 

Each of the five campsites come with a picnic table and fireplace, but being a National Park, you must bring your own timber.  Also remember to bring some water for drinking.  You will need to be fully self sufficient here.  The sites are large, flat and grassy.  Almost all are along the creek with 2 being slighlty further away from the creek (but not much).   
The circular road takes you past each and down to the long drop toilets, which are spotlessly clean.  At the very end of the road is the "day area" which is basically a carpark for about 5 vehicles and takes you on a very short work to the "falls" and a picnic area with fireplace.  Be careful on the slippery rocks.

It's $5 per person, per night to stay here and gets busy on long weekends during Summer we are told by the Ranger.

Trip Kilometres: 420
Trip Duration: 48 hours
