“Dayspring” has 2 secluded, absolute Albert River frontage camp sites for group bookings (or you can have them to yourself!)   Each one is a private site and large enough for 5 vehicles. Our farm is  in the picturesque Scenic Rim Shire.  The sites are turfed and mowed so you can just laze on the grass and listen to the crystal clear rapids. At night you will be serenaded by frog calls. Enjoy great swimming holes in a truly beautiful part of Australia! We are just a few miles down stream from Darlington Park.   One of the greatest attractions is the amazing night sky.  Because the fire pit area is down near the rapids, the high river bank blocks out the city’s lights and glow. It is common to see more than one shooting star in a night.  A good time to view the night sky is a week either side of the new moon.  If you find out  (Google) when the ISS is going overhead and get to view it, you will be in awe, as we have been. A week or so up to a full moon is ideal for gatherings. The moon reflecting on the water and lighting up the campgrounds, the fire pit blazing and the aroma of the cook-ups the boys are doing will surely create a delightful atmosphere for your party. GEM is a very private and peaceful site with lots of shade for the summer months! It's a perfect group site nestled on the banks of the Albert River.  GEM is surrounded by native vegetation either side of the campsite.  Callistemons (Red Bottlebrush), native ferns, grasses and flowers grace the river banks. You can explore or just let the charm of nature’s beauty embrace you. My hubby Bruce and I have been farming here since ‘85 and love the climate and landscape. We use our Hipcamps a lot ourselves and are enjoying sharing our 2 x water front camp sites with you. We will do our best to make your stay pleasurable and are happy to share with you what we have so enjoyed for all these years.  There is a lot to do and see in the Scenic Rim area, so pick up some information at Beaudesert museum or Information centre on the way,  or just chill!

Private slice of paradise!
Absolutely beautiful spot! The sounds of the running creek, birds and frogs was amazing! Very neat and tidy with a nice fire pit. We met Sue at the entry on arrival, she showed us to our spot and made sure that we had everything that we needed and even came down to check on us and see if we needed anything during our stay. She was absolutely lovely and even helped us out when we made the mistake of leaving our firewood in the rain. Plenty of space to stretch out and for the kids to run around, swim in the swimming hole, kick a ball etc. without having to worry about sharing space (or annoying) other campers. Would definitely recommend this spot, we will be back again soon! Thanks Sue!

Far Better Than The Photos!
The size of the camping spot, the privacy, the gorgeous running water and swimming hole. My partner and I needed a relaxing weekend away from our busy lives. Sue’s gorgeous location exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend it for a group or private get away. Sue’s attention to detail was outstanding. She clearly loves and cares for her gorgeous property and it’s a privilege to be able to experience it.

My second stay at this Hipcamp. It’s a large picture perfect site beside the river. Huge fire pit, comfy chairs and a couple of hammocks. So peaceful yet so close to Brisbane. Our host Sue was lovely and I can’t wait to go back again.
