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.

22.11.12 Gordon Country

22.11.12
We are on the road by 0745 and on the highway by 0749.  Destination:  Gordon Country.  The day promises to hot, sticky and possibly stormy.  After looking at several potential campsites on Google Maps, we’ve decided on one area in particular which we’ll check out first – of which I’ve been calling “The Ems” due to the Gordon Country map markings.  If not The Ems, there are a few others that we are keen to try out.  With google map printout in hand, we are on our way past Ipswich and down the Cunningham Highway.

10.11.12 City View Camping & 4WD Park


We are on the road later than usual this time.  My mum came down to stay for a few days and she’s waving us off around 0830.  Our destination is just south west of Beaudesert so not all that far really. 

The day is overcast and it’s been lightly raining at home for a day or two.  Nothing to get excited about – 10mm – but it’s better than watering again which I'll probably have to do again anyway.  The Brisbane region has had practically no rain for 3 or 4 months now and it’s really showing.  The area is on high fire alert and some sections have really been coping it hard according to the news … days have been hazy with smoke of late.
