Stroll through our little rainforest, paddle in the creek or have a dip in one of the many rock pools. We will even let you build as many rock towers as you like! Throw an inner tube in the creek and float around while the kids laugh and play all day long. Let the kids dig holes or fossick for the perfect skimming rocks, ride bikes or play endless games on the beautiful landscaped grass. Plenty of trees to put up that hammock or grab a soak in our outdoor bath with views overlooking the wilderness.

Abundant wildlife, lots of kangaroos and wallabies, koalas and beautiful birds everywhere. Please be aware that weekends are family times and do get busy with extra people.

Due to our extended and continuous wet weather , we have currently reduced our availability to four sites only , we ask our campers to minimise driving on the property as due to the wet we don't have the opportunity to fix roads. It you want to drive to the Dam from Didjabringyabeeralong or the Black Stump, you can drive out gate 3 turn right and come back in gate 4 or you are more than welcome to WALK the internal roads . We are a 90acre private property who raise cattle and goats and have opened up to campers who, like us, prefer and love peace and nature. We have all of our sites on Booking request ( Reserve). Please check that you are ok with our property rules before you book. If you are one of our valued regulars, thank you, we love hosting you on the property and always look forward to see you again. Our rules are really not rocket science, don't take things that are not yours, use the toilets instead of our bush, don't cut down trees or damage things, that includes damaging trees, don't leave anything but ash in the firepit ,make sure the fire is fully extinguished, remove your rubbish and respect and consider your fellow campers and our neighbours. Axe throwing has recently become popular within the city, if you must try it on the property , bring a board, our trees are not to be used as targets. Stay out of our gated paddocks. This is for Biosecurity and your safety. If you are first time campers on our property, this is our philosophy, and we are trying to create peace and tranquility that people crave so much when they get out of their busy lives. We are not the place for rowdy parties. Most of our sites are nestled on different levels between trees and bush so you will feel like you are the only ones there. You are welcome to have a campfire when there is no fire ban in place, however due to the unique surroundings we offer, we do require you to be extra vigilant with fire safety. Please read site descriptions carefully as we have sites that are substantially different in 4WD or 2WD access, privacy , level ground and distance to a toilet. We affectionately call our property "The Rustic Resort". This is a tribute to the rusty water tanks and dilapidated animal shelters that were left behind when we moved in. Our farm was once part of a thriving rural property in the 1920's. It used to be a dairy farm and then a banana farm. We now raise goats and cattle. Our property is dog-friendly to responsible dog owners, has a large farm dam that never runs dry, (NO fishing please as we use this for livestock and swimming, and the last thing we need is hooks in peoples or animals feet. ) It is wonderful for a refreshing swim, there is a ladder to make it easier to get into the dam and there are floating noodles for your use during the summer months. Feel free to bring your paddle boards and canoes. We are centrally located to explore the Glass house mountains, Stoney creek, Rocky holes, Bribie island, Woodford, Mt Mee, Montville, Maleny and much, much more. We are 10 minutes from Woodford and the wonderful Woodford Folk Festival. "White Ridge Farm" in Elimbah is only 10 minutes from us, and the kids will love the interactive farm experience and cuddling the baby animals. Wamuran has an IGA, a wonderful butcher, bakery, bottle shop, servo, fish and chip shop, a new pizza place and a Thai/Indian take away that is sensational. Wamuran holds a local country market every 4th Saturday per month from 7am to midday. There is a Woodfire pizza van in town 2 out of 4 weekends, look up Deadwood Pizza Wamuran to check the dates. We love them. If you would like to stay longer but feel like you need a shower occasionally, there is a public pool in Woodford and a public pool on King Street towards Caboolture , both are about a 10 minute drive from us. Wamuran is less than an hour north from the city, yet you will feel like you are far away. If you are looking for a dump point around the area, www.unitywater.com has a list of available dump points with addresses. If you have any questions please drop us a message.

The best camping near Glass House Mountains National Park guide

Overview

About

Formed by ancient volcanoes, the jagged peaks of the Glass House Mountains are among Queensland’s most photographed natural wonders. Just minutes from the Sunshine Coast beaches, escape to the hinterlands to hike through dense pine forests, picnic with a view of the distinctive hills, or spot birds, including kookaburras and glossy black cockatoo. Rock climbing and abseiling opportunities await experienced climbers, while popular hikes include the Mount Tibrogargan base walk and Mount Ngungun summit walk. Camping isn’t permitted in the national park, but campers can stay on the outskirts or pitch their tent by the creek in nearby Beerwah State Forest.

When to go

Queensland’s sub-tropical climate means that outdoor activities are possible year-round. Summer (December through February) is the most popular time to explore the park, and picnic areas can fill up quickly. Temperatures are slightly cooler than along the coast, but highs can reach more than 35°C, so plan activities for the early morning. 

Know before you go

  • Glass House Mountains National Park is about a 1-hour drive north of Brisbane along the Bruce Highway. Entry points and car parks are by the Beerburrum, Beerwah, Ngungun, and Tibrogargan mountain peaks. Trains run from Brisbane to Glass Mountains Station, four kilometres north of the park, but there is no direct public transport.
  • The towns and villages around the national park have cafés and shops where you can pick up picnic supplies, but the only facilities in the park itself are restrooms and picnic benches.
  • The Tibrogargan trailhead has wheelchair-accessible facilities, but there are no accessible trails within the park.
