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.

20.08.11 Gheerulla Campground – Mapleton Forest Reserve

If you remember, we almost got to check this place out on our way home from Charlie Moreland.  We walked in about 500m that day and we had a bit of a laugh when we discovered we only had about another 400m to go.

The day dawned perfect.  So much for the Bureau of Meteorology and their showers prediction so far.  It was a little cool and somewhat windy … as is always the case around Ekka (Brisbane Exhibition) time.  Those southerlies always appear right in time for the Ekka and  usually hang around for 3 days … we are into day 4

06.08.11 Murphys Creek Escape

Finally got in our 30th night in Rover 6 days late.  Better late than never I say!  One month out of our year camping has to be a good thing.  Watching a show on the box last week stated that people who go camping are more relaxed, richer, and less stressed than those that don't.  Sweet!  :)

We head west along the Warrego Highway to Helidon and then take a couple of rights, a left and another right and we are there.
