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.

This weekend I’ve planned a sojourn to a relatively close destination.  Somewhere we can be in the hills and admire scenery, but close to a creek in a rural setting not so far from town.  NVAT is the perfect place to spend the weekend.  Although known mainly a horse trail riding place, NVAT does also allow camping with your dog, and it’s about 90K’s from home, which is perfect for a short drive … means we’ll be onsite for longer which is always nice.

This weekend is our 50th trip in the camper.  It’s also the weekend for social events in Brisbane: V8’s at Willowbank and Sexpo in town.  But we are going camping because we love it so much.

So, what’s the plan this weekend?  Head to Gordon Country of course.  We love the peace and tranquillity of the place, and the fact that you can camp where ever you like.  Find yourself the perfect spot and you are home.  They have many places to choose from, and with 15k’s of creek frontage, valleys and hills to the ridge line, it’s very easy to find your ideal spot.
