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.

18.02.12 Paddys Flat (ClarenceRiver)

We started our day even earlier than usual and were on the road by 0738.  It’s overcast and has sprinkled.  Not the gorgeous weather predicted.  Oh well.  Never mind.  I’m happy just to be leaving suburbia behind for a short while.

Our destination reportedly a 4x4 must do in northern New South Wales.  I’ve done a bit of research into Paddys Flat Road and found 2 4x4 campsites along this road.  As we have the pups with us again, we can’t stay in either.  A bit disappointing, but living with dogs you get used to not being able to access all areas.

04.02.12 Gordon Country ... Pups Out In the Country

So we are packed up and on the road at 0755.  Pretty early for us Weekend Warriors, but we wanted to be on the road earlier than usual … see if we could actually do it I guess.  We head out to Ipswich, where our NavWoman (me) makes a mistake.  Easy enough though since they’ve changed everything around … or at least that’s a great excuse.  We end up heading for Toowoomba rather than Warwick, but I know a quick way back to the highway we need.  Thankfully the shortcut is still where I last saw it.  We are back on the Cunningham Highway losing about 5 minutes.
The trip to the Aratula is fairly uneventful.  We do get stuck behind a bloke doing 80 for about 40k’s though … that’s about the highlight.  Once in Aratula
