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.

26.02.11 Heifer Creek

This week we headed to Heifer Creek which is a rest area and 48 hour roadside stop, 39k's from Gatton and about 27k's down the Clifton - Gatton Road.  We noted that after all the flooding in the area, it's really hard to tell where it occurred ... if at all ... but the place is wonderfully green.  I'm sure the locals are still living with thoughts of it ... but have picked up the pieces and are putting things back together with surprising resiliance.  I made some calls to Main Roads before leaving to ensure we could make it to the site and that the site was still in good condition.  The Engineer for this road gave it the Thumbs Up but did warn us that the onsite toilet hadn't been tended to in a while (I'm sure they meant the compost pit cleaning and not the physical toilet itself).

19.02.11 Andrew Drynan ... Puppies Big Day Out

We decided it was about time the Puppies in our lives got to have a holiday as well.  Sort of a test run for behaviour, containment and various other criteria that Glenn deemed necessary.  And (thankfully), all Puppies passed the test.  Not necessarily with flying colours, but they weren't too much hassle ... except when the camp was approached by a stranger and they took our a corner pole on the awning.

It's just over an hour from home, 104.5 k's to be exact ... which incidentally is my favourite radio station's number.  The day promised to be hot and steamy ... and it was ... mostly.  As we headed to Beaudesert, the sky was covered in heavy looking, low lying, clouds. 

12.02.11 Spring Gully Stays

From home, we travelled down the M1 (Pacific Highway) till we got to this sign and took the turnoff.
Then we followed the signs to Canungra.  From here we took the road directly opposite The Outpost Cafe, which leads to Lamington National Park.  We followed this for approximately 10k's, passed a large vineyard with a beautiful old Queenslander amongst the vines, and continued another kilometre of so, till we came across Sarabah Road.
