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.

28.03.13 Fordsdale Farmstay

So Easter is here again.  It means a long weekend with no packing up for 3 whole days which we both think is divine! I had made plans to head to Yandilla … even went so far as to make a booking, but David said it would be busy and we might not get our favourite spot … especially now there is water in Kilcoy Creek.

So Glenn has chosen Fordsdale for our long weekend, as we know it won’t be crowded.  We have the most ideal spot in mind as well.  I couldn’t get a hold of David by phone to cancel, so sent him an email via his website.  I hope he’s not too upset that we won’t be attending.

16.03.13 Land Cruiser Mountain Park


We started out at our normal time.  Glenn had suggested our destination for this trip.  Definitely worth a look as it’s the largest 4WD park in the Great South East.  Heading north along the Bruce Highway, we take our turnoff at Caboolture and head west to Kilcoy.
Traffic is moving well at all stages, but about 2k’s before we take another right, we come to a complete standstill.  It seems that there are some road works halting our progress.  Expected delays are 15 minutes says the sign.  And it’s right.  We pull up in line and wait.

02.03.13 Pacific Sun (A Naturist Venue)

This fortnight we are off to another textile optional camping ground.  Glenn has been investigating them on the net and found quite a few that accept well behaved dogs.  As an alternative to regular camping areas, we’ve decided to try a few out.
