Granite & Eucalypt Camp sits on "Mackenzie Glen" and offers a private camping experience for families and their dogs. The camp allows for self contained tent campers and caravans, camp trailers or RVs. We only allow 1 group at a time, so there will never be any other guests on the property whilst you are there. So once it is booked, the place is entirely yours. For example, if 3 families would like trip away with the kids, it will be exclusive to your group. There is a plentiful supply of firewood around the block that can be collected, if there isn't a load already near the fire. A load of wood is normally replenished once a month and left next to the firepit. There is very limited mobile phone reception along Eukey Road and it is almost non-existent at the camp. Which is great if you want a digital detox! However, there is a way you can still be connected and these details can be provided upon request. There is no toilet... yet. We do sometimes dig a drop toilet but this is not available all the time and it moves frequently.  There is a small post hole digger with a bottomless bucket toilet (more affectionately called "Chainsaw") set that you can dig a hole for a toilet and a cage that gives some privacy (see the photos).  But please make sure you fill it in with your finished and all the toilet paper is buried at least a foot under the ground.   It gets it name from the rodeo bull "Chainsaw" because if you dig the hole too wide and can last 8 seconds on the seat, you're a legend!  SO good tip for campers if you want to use it.  A favourite thing to do at the camp is to have sundowners on what we call the "Zen Rock". It is a large rock formation about 100m the east of the camp. You can't miss it. There is an incredible amount of bird life around and a family of magpies live in trees just near the camp kitchen (they are friendly). You will often be woken by the Kookaburras and see the gorgeous Rosella's cruising around picking at grass seed. McKenzie Glen provides a swag deck that is large enough for 2 double swags side by side. There is a fully fitted camp kitchen which includes a gas stove. Our point of difference is that for a family who can’t afford all the kitchen camping equipment etc - you will have 'most' of the luxury's of home. You will need an esky for your food and drinks. There is no power, however the kitchen has a small fixed 12 volt system that will run the small pump for the kitchen and the lights. You'll see the switches.   There may also be some cattle on the property, they are agisted by my lovely neighbours. They are usually weaners or cows and calves. McKenzie Glen - Granite & Eucalypt Camp is a stones throw of the Girraween National Park, a number of Granite Belt wineries and it is not too far down the road is Storm King Dam where (now that its full) is great for fishing and kayaking and boating. The area used to be mined for Tin. Keep any eye out for lumps of granite rocks on the ground and if your lucky enough you might find some with flicks of tin. If you hold the rock up to the light you can see the fecks shine in the light. If you are a coffee lover like me, there is St. Jude's Cafe down the road on the New England Highway at Ballandean. I highly recommend popping over to Ballandean Estate Wines on Sundowner Road, they've been making wine since 1932. The smell of the food coming from their Barrel Room Restaurant will draw you in even if you're not hungry (you can book a table on line so you don't miss out). And if you like a good country pub meal and a cold beer, then the Ballandean Tavern is the go. Both St. Judes and the Ballandean Tavern are only 8.8km from the camp. To the North of the camp, this bushland is a declared bushfire zone.  To stay aware of radio broadcasts, the local ABC channels are 104.9 (ABC radio) 103.3 (Triple J).

Granite Belt Bliss!
Our family of four absolutely loved staying at Stephanie's Granite and Eucalyptus Bush Camp on McKenzie Glenn! The hut with plenty of room to hang-out, 12v lighting and camp kitchen (sink, running water and stove), made our stay a very easy one! The location is perfect to visit the amazing walks of Giraween National Park, as well as the incredible surrounding towns of Ballandean, Stanthorpe, etc. ... and there is an amazing amount to see and do for kids and adults alike! Thanks for sharing your patch of paradise Steph! We'll be back!

Great setup for a weekend of wine
Stephanie’s property was perfect for a weekend of wine tasting in Stanthorpe with our group of friends. There were great amenities that made it easy to setup for a weekend away without having to bring all the standard camping gear (eg tables, cooking equipment, etc). We will definitely come back to Stephanie’s property again if visiting Stanthorpe for a weekend in the future!

Great campground! It’s very secluded with no other groups staying at the same time as you. Really cool camp kitchen/undercover area which made the stay easier.

Great country camping
Such an amazing spot and even though we didn’t use it, the little camp kitchen set up was awesome. Was just a great area to sit and watch the sunrise! So close to all the wineries, national parks and pub. Will definitely be back!
