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.

25.06.11 Sheep Station camp Border Ranges NP

Another late start at 0930, but we don’t have far to go, so not a worry for us. 
Not so for the Camel Camper family down the street who were pulling out at 0800.  I wonder where they were going, swags packed upon the camper top, car brimming with gear and people?  It’s school holidays, so perhaps they were off to somewhere for a week or two … maybe doing a few nights here and there.  Lucky them!  Might nick down the street when they get back and find out what they’ve been up to.  A great way to meet the neighbours I guess.  That’s if they come back!

11.06.11 Glen Rock via Centenary (Thornton) Park Laidley and home via Atkinson Dam

Queens birthday long weekend and the weather prediction is rain, rain, and more rain.  Perfect weekend for camping?  Maybe …  We are heading to Centenary Park or Thornton Park as it’s right in Thornton.  It’s in the middle of nowhere, but still manages to have 2 road frontage. 
From Laidley continue south till you reach the Ipswich Rosewood road, and take a  right.  Continue to follow the signs to Mulgowie, specifically the pub which I believe does a great meal, then Thorton.  It’s not hard to find, but comes up on you suddenly none the less.  It’s between the Mt Mistake and Little Liverpool ranges, and Castle Mountain very noticable on the drive down.  My grandfather used to own Mt Mistake and grazed cattle there.  Now it’s a national park.  Dad remembers it being very scrubby and only good for horses to access to gather the wild cattle that it ran.
