Best in Queensland: Finalist
Named one of the best Hipcamps to visit in 2023.
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.

Very nice place to visit. So many stars at night time and can be seen through the tree branches are awesome to look at!

Beautiful, peaceful spot
Great spot with AMAZING views. The site numbers aren't site specific but there's plenty of private camps for those who prefer. Peter was very friendly and easy to chat to. Will be back.

Wonderful views and peaceful
We enjoyed our stay at Gumridge! We were able to camp at one of the top ridges. The views are best on the lower sites but we still had a nice view amongst the trees. Peter was very helpful and warned about the potential of snakes and ticks - none of which we encountered but we were very cautious. In the current climate, we were mindful of how dry the land was and with high gusts of wind so we only had a very small fire once the wind calmed down on the last night. We would recommend this place if you’re looking to slow down and escape the reality of busy life. As a side note not related to this property - the creeks in nearby locations are very dry and not running (as at October 2023) so if you’re looking for a place to swim nearby, maybe wait for rain.

Lovely spot with a great view. We camped at the lower end closer to the property and woke up every morning with a spectacular view of the mountain. Pete was accomodating and helpful. PS if the internet is a part of your plans, leave it at home as this location gives you the peace of limited reception.
