6500 acre working cattle property in the Southern Downs of Queensland. Beautiful campsites, abundant wildlife, crystal clear diamond night skies, with four distinct seasons. Only 2 hours from Brisbane, and 20 minutes from Warwick. Connolly Dam is about 5 km away and is great for swimming and you can kayak and swim and fish (permit required). Suitable for all types of vehicles, caravans, motorhomes, big rigs... etc. Dog friendly. Horse agistment available. Campers will need their own toilet and remove all rubbish. Contained campfires permitted when restrictions aren't in place, plenty of wood to gather your own (more than enough!) We will happily offer a discount on a confirmed booking for anyone under age 5, but they do need to be booked for insurance purposes. Please ask. We can offer multiple secluded sites. We will not put other campers near your site. Our bush sites are your own until you leave. You can hear the birds, kangaroo thumps, sometime koala growl, and distant cattle but no other people.

Fig Tree Hill
Lovely spot with great views sheltered from the westerly winds. Fantastic to get away from everything. Many thanks Nicholas and Liz for having us back again. Greatly appreciated.

The Plateau was a great tucked away spot to camp. Very simple space with room enough to run around and kick the footy. Nick and Liz are lovely to talk to and very welcoming hosts.

Railway tunnel
Be aware that there is a water crossing on the way to the house. We weren’t aware and my friend almost didn’t persue due to fear of the unknown under the water. We were meant to stay at railway, however due to the clearance of our cars (Yaris urban and 2001 hilux) we were unable to camp at this location. Nicholas escorted us down near the entrance way 2 gates in and we didn’t get any service being Optus, so we opted to come back into the first gate which was right near the road. The ground was flat, we all sat on 3G most of the time (Optus and telstra), the trucks were a bit loud - obviously due to being close the road, the cows visited in the afternoon and the bay and palomino horse came to the fence around midday. The mare was very fiesty and was not interested in being touched - which was respected. Overall was a quiet and good spot to camp. If you have a smaller car, try and ask if they’d meet you at the gate for this same location instead of crossing the water system. Would return in the future if I had a 4WD.

Crows nest
Beautiful spot with awesome views. Crows Nest can be windy so just check your weather. Sunsets are awesome. Feels like you are in the middle of nowhere but only just outside of Warwick. Love it!

Kangaroo Corner Paddock
Horse Riding Heaven
Absolutely top weekend camping in Kangaroo Corner at Risdon Stud with our Horses. Magnificent countryside to explore on horseback, peaceful, family friendly environment. Nick and Liz were outstanding hosts only too happy to help accommodate our many needs with such a large group of 10 campers and 10 horses! Highly recommend this destination for anyone with horses wanting a family friendly camping holiday with their horse's. We will be back!
