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.

30.03.12 Gordon Country … Pups On The Run

30.03.12
We managed to squeeze an extra night into our weekend, so spent no time hitting the road and getting things under way, passing our last set of traffic lights by 0815.  The day is gorgeous and we hope the entire weekend will stay this way. 

Our last trip got rained out (literally) and now the camper has a musty smell when you open the rear draw door … not happy Jan.

On the road at 0800.  Day looks perfect all around.  A little cloudy, but fine.  On the highway, over the Gateway Bridge, traffic is excellent.

Passed this guy on the way up and the way back.  He headed toward Caboolture.

03.03.12 Murphy’s Creek Escape


The weather bureau predicts hotter than yesterday … so over 32°C … and very sunny.  Excellent camping weather.  That’s what it’s been like all week, but overnight we hear rain on the roof and wake to a dismally overcast day.  And it starts raining as we pack things in the car. 
Glenn has built a ramp for the pups to get in the dog box on their own and surprisingly, by the time we finish camping for the weekend, they are getting used to coming up and down it which is fantastic.  However, the first few times we use it, it’s hilarious.
