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.

23.07.11 Lake Atkinson Scout Camp

I found this site after a workmate mentioned how they had stayed at a caravanpark on Lake Atkinson.  As you may have already noticed, we aren’t so keen on the whole caravan park thing, preferring the peace and serenity of the natural world … without all the crowds.  When I noticed that this site catered tocampers, well, I was sold.  I contacted them directly via email, and was sad to find the email address was out of date.  I then noted that the website hadn’t been updated since 2005. 

09.07.11 Pardise Valley

Another beautiful clear and crisp Winters day for camping.  This weekend we are off to Paradise Valley, a small, privately owned campground along Lions Road and only 18k's from the NSW border.  Since we won State of Origin through the week, it's probably a good idea not to venture too far into the losing state. 

At 0900 we are on the road and heading towards our destination.  Glenn has picked this site for the weekend.  The day is cool, clear and we are both wearing jumper and beanies!
