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.

30.12.11 Waterfall Creek Reserve ... Puppies Long Weekend Out

It seems that Glenn has already made up his mind about where we are going for this New Years weekend. That’s a good thing as it saves me having to run off the list of potenial places. And we are taking the pups with us as well, so Glenn has organised things so they can go in the cab of his ute and I know Jack will appreciate the air conditioning being that he’s 13 now.
We aren’t in a hurry to leave today and make sure we pack everything securely which means we head out about 0900. We head south to Beaudesert, then onto Rathdowney which certainly has its fair share of places to stay close by. Once through Rathdowney

17.12.11 Lake Atkinson Scout Camp

I’d made a booking here a little while ago, planning to stay for a long weekend for my birthday.  During the time between then and now, the Camp Manager had contacted me, saying that a family always spent this particular weekend out there and were wondering if I’d mind sharing the camp with them.  No worries at all, but we’ll be taking the dogs, so would prefer if they didn’t let any kids approach them, as they would be off lead.  We were hoping to camp right on the lake shore, so would they mind if we chose the first spot as we’d be out there rather early.

I made sure I rang before we left, telling the camp manager that we’d be out there in about an hour or so.  We headed off towards Ipswich and along the Darren Lockyer Way towards Minden
