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.

19.01.13 Numinbah Valley Adventure Trails

19.01.13
We booked this trip rather late as I’d been trying to contact another camp ground with no success alas.   To date I've still not heard from them.  

Arriving about 0930 onsite, we found that the site we had booked had been taken by a family friend and being a rather hot weekend, we would now have to set up and be in the hot, hot sun all day long.  I tried to convince Glenn to take another site that was lightly shaded, but was in close proximity to another large camping group, but he wasn’t easily swayed.  So with no choice but to make the best of it we headed down to the sites with no shade. 

05.01.13 Guanaba Scout Camp


05.01.13
I’d been researching all the SEQ scout camps to find a few we could stay at and found one less than an hour away.  On contacting the gentleman running Guanaba at the last possible minute, we found that he had a cancellation that morning and was only too happy to let us hire out his facility.

Having no idea what the site was like other than what can be seen on Google, we agreed to his terms and conditions.  We’d need to pick up the key some 30k’s from our destination and it’s further down the highway than we really need to go, but if it gets us in the gate all well and good.
