Over the Creek

8 sites · RVs, Tents178 acres · Tarome, QLD
We have 178 acres of beautiful land hidden in the hills of Tarome in the Scenic Rim community. An amazing view of the national park and Cunninghams Gap. There is a hidden creek at the back of the property that never runs dry, running from Gap Creek Falls at the top of Cunninghams Gap. The location is perfect for a quick getaway or long stay, complete privacy and little reception depending on your phone service, ensuring a peaceful camping stay. There is lots of activities within a short drive from the property including fishing at Lake Moogerah, hiking the mountain tops or having brunch at the amazing local cafe's in the area. Our campsites are hidden in the hills, down by the creek or out in the open. You will need a 4 WD to access the rear of the property. There are 3 x 2WD camping options for caravans over 17ft or those not off road. Depending on the type of vehicle and van will dictate your camping locations. Maximum caravan access for the rear of the property is 17ft off road van. This is due to the hill climb and a tight corner at the top. Dogs are welcome but must stay within the camp, be under control or on a leash. If you have friends who you want to invite but don't have camping gear that's okay, we have the option to hire a camper trailer. All they need to bring is food and drinks. Only 1 available, please see Extras. We welcome self-contained campers who bring their own camping toilet/shower, and drinking water. All human, food and general waste is to be removed upon leaving the campsite. We have fireplaces set up but if you prefer a different site for your fire please bring your own fire pit. Good Firewood for camp ovens etc is available for purchase under Extras. For this one off price we will supply you for wood for your whole stay. There is sometimes wood located at each campsite but the amount and quality is varied. Check in and out times are flexibility but please arrange time prior to arrival

Waterfall Views

2 sites · RVs6 acres · Glenvale, QLD
Our property is located in Glenvale a suburb on the western fringe of Toowoomba, Queensland. It is an unique suburban acreage and yet a private site on either side of a spring fed permanent creek which meanders through the farm with its babbling waterfalls. There is a rockpool next to the waterfalls. The gentle churning of the crystal clear water in the falls is heard and seen from the perch atop the creek where the camp site is located. The creek meanders on and under the rustic covered 40 feet bridge as it leaves the farm. The farm has chooks, goats and of course Daisey the jersey cross belted galloway cow. They are a friendly mob and give good company! The treed farm has many spots along the shady tree lined creek for camping. Access can sometimes be difficult after heavy rain so please check with your host beforehand. For bike enthusiasts there is a biking trail that encompasses the property with two creek crossings. The creek lends itself to short distance canoeing for about 50 to 60 metres in 2 stretches. We have introduced fish fingerlings only recently in the creek and hence no fishes yet! The farm has two antique wooden carriages which are undergoing renovations as weekenders. Though campers are welcome to view them from outside they are not yet ready for use and are cordoned off. The new Coles shopping and Westside Bunnings are only a 3 minute drive and the local Eustondale Golf course next door. The property is a private little haven at Toowoomba's Doorstep with its own microecosystem that combines the four seasons of Toowoomba weather. Campfires are allowed outside of fire restrictions and only in the firepit provided. Pets are welcome but must be kept on a leash at all times.
