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.

17.09.11 Cedar Grove Campground

We left home at 0830 heading north this time.  It was a last minute decision to head for the Amamoor State Forest.    

As we reached the Bruce Highway, we realised that it must be school holidays as most of Brisbane had also reached the highway and were heading north.  I counted 3 camper trailers and many caravans whizzing past us in both directions.  School holidays sure bring out the “moronic idiot” in some drivers I must say.   

03.09.11 Spicers Gap Camp Ground

Leaving home and heading towards Ipswich, we turn off onto the Cunningham Highway.  Passing Willowbank Raceway, we marvel at how beautiful the day is, considering the local forecast is for showers.  It is a little overcast with a bit of wind, but the sun is rather warm, when it does appear.  Heading through the little towns of the Scenic Rim is always a great drive.  Contended cows are everywhere and we are happy it is finally Spring.

Passing through Aratula, we take note of the usual tourists stopping off to grab some cakes and coffee or take advantage of the fruit store in the centre of town.  On the outskirts we see blokes in 4wd’s pulling up outside the pub and think it is a bit early for it.  Perhaps they are planning to grab some seafood at the mobile fisho
