“Dayspring” has 2 secluded, absolute Albert River frontage camp sites for group bookings (or you can have them to yourself!)   Each one is a private site and large enough for 5 vehicles. Our farm is  in the picturesque Scenic Rim Shire.  The sites are turfed and mowed so you can just laze on the grass and listen to the crystal clear rapids. At night you will be serenaded by frog calls. Enjoy great swimming holes in a truly beautiful part of Australia! We are just a few miles down stream from Darlington Park.   One of the greatest attractions is the amazing night sky.  Because the fire pit area is down near the rapids, the high river bank blocks out the city’s lights and glow. It is common to see more than one shooting star in a night.  A good time to view the night sky is a week either side of the new moon.  If you find out  (Google) when the ISS is going overhead and get to view it, you will be in awe, as we have been. A week or so up to a full moon is ideal for gatherings. The moon reflecting on the water and lighting up the campgrounds, the fire pit blazing and the aroma of the cook-ups the boys are doing will surely create a delightful atmosphere for your party. GEM is a very private and peaceful site with lots of shade for the summer months! It's a perfect group site nestled on the banks of the Albert River.  GEM is surrounded by native vegetation either side of the campsite.  Callistemons (Red Bottlebrush), native ferns, grasses and flowers grace the river banks. You can explore or just let the charm of nature’s beauty embrace you. My hubby Bruce and I have been farming here since ‘85 and love the climate and landscape. We use our Hipcamps a lot ourselves and are enjoying sharing our 2 x water front camp sites with you. We will do our best to make your stay pleasurable and are happy to share with you what we have so enjoyed for all these years.  There is a lot to do and see in the Scenic Rim area, so pick up some information at Beaudesert museum or Information centre on the way,  or just chill!

Private slice of paradise!
Absolutely beautiful spot! The sounds of the running creek, birds and frogs was amazing! Very neat and tidy with a nice fire pit. We met Sue at the entry on arrival, she showed us to our spot and made sure that we had everything that we needed and even came down to check on us and see if we needed anything during our stay. She was absolutely lovely and even helped us out when we made the mistake of leaving our firewood in the rain. Plenty of space to stretch out and for the kids to run around, swim in the swimming hole, kick a ball etc. without having to worry about sharing space (or annoying) other campers. Would definitely recommend this spot, we will be back again soon! Thanks Sue!

Far Better Than The Photos!
The size of the camping spot, the privacy, the gorgeous running water and swimming hole. My partner and I needed a relaxing weekend away from our busy lives. Sue’s gorgeous location exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend it for a group or private get away. Sue’s attention to detail was outstanding. She clearly loves and cares for her gorgeous property and it’s a privilege to be able to experience it.

My second stay at this Hipcamp. It’s a large picture perfect site beside the river. Huge fire pit, comfy chairs and a couple of hammocks. So peaceful yet so close to Brisbane. Our host Sue was lovely and I can’t wait to go back again.

Best camping spot
This spot has become a regular for my family. Camping at its best. The creek at your doorstep for cooling off, rafting and fishing. Sue the host is just beautiful and always has the site prepared with a smile.

Privacy Dayspring site
Hi Sue, thank you fir sharing your property with us. We enjoyed every minute. The well maintained grass, firewood, tinder and newspaper for our easy use, fresh flowers on the bench and the freshly washed hammocks. The rivet and birdlife was absolutely amazing. We saw no people, no noise but the river running, quiet and peaceful. This place is absolutely worth every penny👌👌

Loved it
This has been our favourite campsite to date. It’s not without its challenges but they are worth it. It’s close to town (shops) for supplies and yet so private and secluded. The creek was very fast flowing (not suitable for young kids) but that was because we had so much rain in the region. We had concerns at one point of flooding and Sue was awesome giving her advice and in the end the river only rose about 40cm. The wind can be extremely strong but ultimately this is a superb campsite!

Amazing Place - Recommended to All
GEM is a Gem for real. Sue was great and very inviting. The place is magical. Rapids and Crystal Clear water, even after flooding, amazing place to have a dip in and take the family. Be a little cautious if kayaking as the current is strong. The wildlife is wonderful, you may even spot a wedgetail eagle. Shooting stars also very common. Only issue may be exiting the spot after heavy rain, but a good 4wd should have no issues. Re Fishing. For those wondering if there is fish. We had no luck catching any fish, but carp and other large fish were spotted.

Relaxing with friends
Hosts Sue and Bruce have created a beautiful private space with special touches on the banks of the Albert River. The site has plenty of flat area to setup vans and has seating provided for ten people around the top campfire. Such a relaxed setting with the sound of the flowing river in the background. Would not hesitate to recommend it. Sue was a great host.

We had the most amazing weekend at Dayspring! It is our new favourite campsite! It was so nice and relaxing falling asleep to the sound of the running creek. The deep section of the creek was perfect for cooling off during the day too. Sue was a lovely host and made sure our stay was the best it could possibly be.

Brilliant little camp site
Sue is a fantastic host. The campsite is clean, well maintained and the extra touches were very nice. Firewood is excellent quality. The mulberry tree was fruiting nicely and the kids had a blast picking and eating. The mown grassy area was flat enough for the kids to ride their bikes and kick the ball around. A really nice quiet campsite, we’ll be back for sure.

An extremely tranquil setting
Absoutly Fantastic. Wonderful Host Sue made us feel extremly welcome, an extremely tranquil property right on the banks of a lovely flowing creek. We absoutly loved falling asleep to the sound of the creek and watching the stars at night. Would be great for a group booking plenty of flat usable space and a great communal firepit area. We will defiantly be back.

Dayspring is a lovely spot. It's very private, very quiet and right beside the Albert River. Great for swimming and just absorbing the atmosphere. Sue is a great host and with her husband has created a great camping area. Easy enough to find and good 2WD access. I'll back without hesitation. Thanks for the solitude Sue.

Relaxing family trip
Our family of five had a lovely long weekend at DaySpring. Our young children enjoyed playing in the creek and making sculptures out of the clay and dirt on the bank. It was quiet and relaxing not having other campers nearby. The camp ground was presented very well and all the grass mowed freshly for us. Sue was so friendly and personable to deal with too. We can't wait to go back.

Anniversary weekend
Sue was a lovely host. Showed us where to set up and let us be. Had an amazing three day weekend down on the river. Plenty of water life to fish. Quiet, surrounded by shooting stars at night. Perfectly serenity!
