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.

29.10.11 Heifer Creek Rest Area (with the puppies)

Glenn went to buy a roof rack for his ute as he’s found a shop that has an opening special that would save him $60.  Why wouldn’t you give that saving a thumbs up?  This means we don’t end up leaving home till 0930, and the day is overcast.  Hopefully no rain to come.  Bureau says fine, fine, fine … let’s hope so. 

Just as we make it to the highway, we pass about a zillion trucks all flashing their lights and driving very slowly ... must be some fund raising event.  Wish we knew what for.

01.10.11 Spring Gully Stays - Puppies Big Day Out

So this time Glenn wanted to go somewhere close.  I wanted to take the puppies with us.  So Spring Gully Stays it is.  Mostly because we think River Bend Camping will be completely packed and Flanagan’s is “a bit far” for this weekend.

We hit the road in a timely fashion, some puppies loaded in my car, and the camper in tow with his puppy in his car.  I know a bit of overkill, but that’s how you get 3 dogs to said location without much drama.  He connected up his CB and I switched on my handheld and away we go.  Wish it had been this easy back when I was tailing my parents around the countryside, but instead we used the old light flash for the car behind or the simply pull over for the car in front, ensuring we had a plan prior to leaving.  So much easier to chat about things driving along when one has a CB.
