This 30 acre property has been in the family for over 35 years and is where I lived my childhood.

I loved camping here, the host was an absolute gem. There’s horses there that are so friendly and just roaming around the land. The campsite we stayed at ( top paddock ) was amazing, amazing views & so much room if you wanna go in a group!! Definitely recommend. 😊

Lovely and Peaceful
We had a lovely quiet stay at the campsite. It is close to Lowood centre so easy to get to the shops and local pub for lunch. The bike trail is literally visable from the campsite, so perfect if you want to go for a ride. There are horses on the property and they are quite friendly and will walk around the campsite while you are there and if you are lucky you will see them go for a dip in the dam.

Lovely place.
We had a lovely weekend at Lowood Nature Camp. Lynette was very responsive to our questions. Lovely flat area next to the pond. Our granddaughters we asked if they would like to feed and brush the horses which they loved. The horses would come up to your camp and follow the girls around which they thought was so special. We easily rode our bikes into Lowood along the cycle track.Would recommend and will be back.

The camp was so lovely, private and with a great view on the surrounding hills. Lynnette was very friendly on the phone and helpful. It was treat to see the horses near the camp when we woke up. We will definitely stay again.

Second time here, and even though it’s rained both times, it is truly a little slice of country relaxation at its best. Lynette and Lauren are quick to respond and super accommodating. Cute coffee place in town via the rail trail walk :)

Quite and relaxing
Staying at Lynnette and Lauren's was totally what we needed peaceful and quiet yet still close to everything. Right next to the Brisbane rail trail there place is a little peace of paradise close to Brisbane for that quick weekend away. We both had an amazing time staying at Lowood with super hosts like Lynnette & Lauren and look forward to returning one day during our travels 😀

Serene spot by the rail trail
Beautiful spot good distance away from other campers, looking over the dam and the rail trail. Loved walking along the trail into town to the bakery and cafe Might be helpful to have a little sign at the fork in the road where left is one site and right is the other - Lynette was super accommodating showing us to our site but we had some directionally challenged friends come later and end up annoying the other campers accidentally. Other campers complained (which is not Lynette’s fault that’s just uptight guests) and it turned into a big deal which caused unnecessary stress on an otherwise relaxing trip. Overall was a wonderful time though and will definitely be back

It was a lovely spot, peaceful and isolated. Unfortunately we only stayed the 1 night due to weather but would love to go back. Lynette was a great host. Very helpful with knowledge and ideas of things to do in the area..

My husband and I recently camped at Lowood Nature Camp and took our grandson with us. We had a lovely time. The area is lovely and quiet, stars at night amazing, site very tidy. We stayed near the dam. Horses were around but pretty much stayed to themselves. Lowood, Fernvale and Wivenhoe all close. We would love to come and camp here again and explore the area more.

Nice little spot
Well what more can I say, very nice spot to go for a weekend, access is a bit muddy due to recent rain 4x4 a must in these conditions. Camping spot by the dam was lovely and dry. We'll be back being so close to brissy. Cheers Geoff

Great quiet spot right with only one other site with easy access to the Brisbane Rail Trail and a short 15min walk to town. Lynette was a friendly host who greeted us upon arrival. Great firewood just around the corner for only $10.

What a great campsite so close to Brisbane. Lynette the host was there to greet me at the gate and escort me to to my site. She had a welcome gift for me, a bag full of seasonal goodies fresh from her garden.( I ate the lot for lunch! Thanks Lynette) I chose "Dam side" which had beautiful sunset views and loads of birdlife. It was grassy, flat and had a fire pit ready to go. Lynette and Lauren have turned their beautiful property into a horse santurary and if you are lucky, the horses will bless you with a visit. What a magical experience spending time amongst them especially the young foal -Holly Rose who's curiosity was so endearing. The property borders the Brisbane Valley Trail so bring your bikes and explore. This property is a great base to experience all this area has to offer. Ideal spot to camp with kids or those, like me who love spending some quiet time in Nature. Highly recommend

Lynnette as always a great host, made sure the site was impeccable and ensured we had a suitable vehicle / camping arrangements (for what was forecast to be a wet weekend and delivered). Was welcomed by Lauren also upon arrival. We'll be back.
