Hipcampers say this spot has amazing views.
We have a 15 acre elevated bush block with space for 15 or so tents, camper trailers or caravans. There is a council maintained 2 km gravel road which provides access & most vehicles can make it here reliably in any weather. Please note that you are unlikely to make it up our road due to the lack of grip on the gravel if you have a front wheel drive vehicle with any significant sized trailer. Our campgrounds can also be very slippery if wet. The camping area has no amenities, however it shares a spectacular view south across the QLD/NSW border from 300 meters above sea level, with Mt. Maroon 6 km away. Also visible are Mt. Barney and Mt. Lindsay. The local area has a tourism focus with plenty of opportunities to explore the Scenic Rim. Mt. Maroon and Mt. Barney offer walking trails to the top, Lake Moogera and Maroon Dam are not far away for jetskis, kayaking and swimming and we also have several eateries withing 25 minutes. Scenic Rim website has more details. Dog friendly. Kids are classed as age 10 and under. If aged 11 and over, please book at adult rate.

I love camping at Gumridge, the views were absolutely breathtaking. We loved the privacy of our campsite but I love that there was an option for a more open site for larger groups. We visited the lake near by as well, it's a short drive and perfect for a swim or keyak. We definitely would love to come back. Thanks for having us Peter!

Spectacular Views
Great spot. We took an off-road camp trailer, no issues at all. Unfortunately trailers are limited to the lower plateau, where the sites are a little more condensed (and closer to the geese). Amazing views of Mount Barney. The sites are first in best dressed. Plenty of firewood laying around if you take a chainsaw. No grass, so would be messy with rain. Pulled a few bush ticks out when we got home, so something to be aware of during tick season. Will definitely be back.
